Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice has provided care and support for more than a thousand children and their families across Wales since it first opened in 1999. Currently caring for around 300 children with life-limiting conditions, Tŷ Hafan provides respite care at the hospice in Sully and outreach support across our community.
It costs £4.5 million to run Tŷ Hafan annually and 25% of that comes from the generosity of incredible supporters via gifts in their wills, the remainder from fundraising.
Supporting Tŷ Hafan really does make a difference…
One such family to benefit from this are the Meredith’s who describe Tŷ Hafan as a “total lifeline.” Mum and Dad Sophie and Sean were just twenty-two when their son Ollie, now six, was diagnosed with the ultra-rare MOSAIC Syndrome. At four months old Ollie was admitted to hospital, and at 18 months he and his family had their first experience of Tŷ Hafan.
“If we did not have support from Tŷ Hafan we would have no respite at all,” says Sophie. “The hydrotherapy pool is amazing, plus the socialising with other children and families. The nurses there have known Ollie all his life and they are amazing with him. Tŷ Hafan has been there for us all the way.”
MAKE A DIFFERENCE
You can really help other children like Ollie
Help Tŷ Hafan to continue to be a lifeline to families such as the Meredith’s, by including a gift in your will. No matter how big or small, every gift in a will makes a significant difference.
Tŷ Hafan has partnered with the National Free Wills Network to provide their supporters with the opportunity to meet with a local solicitor to write a simple will, or pair of wills, for free. There is no obligation to leave a gift in your will to Tŷ Hafan, but your support will help more children with life-limiting conditions like Ollie.
