morrisons community champions visit tŷ hafan

written by Tŷ Hafan

On February 15 we announced a fantastic new three-year partnership between Morrisons, Together for Short Lives and children’s hospices across the UK, including Tŷ Hafan.

 

This partnership will enable Morrisons staff and customers to raise much-needed funds for us, and children’s hospices across the UK, helping us all to keep on providing vital care and support for children with life-limiting conditions and their families.

Opening the door to new ways of fundraising

written by Tŷ Hafan

There's nothing quite like the excitement of having your very own home. But what if home for you wasn't the house in which you live but something else?

Where love resides, memories are created, and laughter never ends. A safe space, a place with people you trust who can provide the comfort, care and support you need.

For many children and their families across Wales, that place is Ty  Hafan.
