A team of Thomas Carroll charity cyclists tackled a 295-mile bike ride from London to Paris to raise enough funds to pay for a whole day of palliative care at Tŷ Hafan.

Covering 74 miles a day, the dedicated team raised more than £10,000 to help Tŷ Hafan support life-limited children and their families from across Wales.

Whenever I visit Tŷ Hafan, it is emotional; I can't pretend that it's not. To see the little children running around, it draws you into it. So to be able to pay for the services for one day is an incredible achievement.

Finishing at the Eiffel Tower on 20 September. Paul Evans, Account Manager and team captain for the bike ride, said:

"Our goal was to raise over £10,000 - the cost of providing all of Tŷ Hafan's palliative care services for 24 hours, not only at the hospice itself, but their work supporting children and their families in communities throughout Wales.

"We are great supporters of Tŷ Hafan's Pay for a Day scheme and we have chosen 1 October, the anniversary of Thomas Carroll's founding in 1972, as our special day of care at the hospice.

"Riding 74 miles a day with a team of mixed cycling experience was a challenge, but the incredible team spirit and the vital cause, pulled us through."

Staff from Thomas Carroll joined children and their families for a party at the hospice in Sully to celebrate paying for a day of care at Tŷ Hafan.
