Sometimes, it’s easy to get wrapped up in our own lives and forget, that no matter how difficult life gets, we are never the worst off. Our MD Jamie was reminded of that this week, when he and fellow Director, Jackie, went to visit Ty Hafan children’s hospice to present them with a donation.
Ty Hafan children’s hospice was launched in 1999 and was the brainchild of the late Suzanne Goodall, a nurse, who recognised a need for a special hospice for children and young people with life-limiting illnesses. The hospice is located in Sully, near Barry, South Wales and its original patron was the late Diana, Princess of Wales. Other celebrity supporters have included Luciano Pavarotti, who headlined a special fundraising concert for Ty Hafan in 1995 to help raise money to open the hospice.
Today, the hospice continues to grow and provide essential care for children and their families. They look after children with many different illnesses and would love to expand their facilities to help more children. It costs £12000 a day to run the hospice, that’s £84,000 a week and over four million a year. Clearly, it’s a huge task.
We at Redkey were so impressed with the work done by Ty Hafan that we pledged to become an ongoing corporate sponsor. Keep an eye on our channels. More news coming soon!
