Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice has provided care and support for more than 1,000 children and their families across Wales since it opened in 1999.
Currently caring for 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.
One such family to benefit from this are the Merediths who describe Tŷ Hafan as a “total lifeline”. Mum and dad, Sophie and Sean, were just 22 when they son Ollie, now six, was diagnosed with the ultra-rare MOSAIC Syndrome.
“If we didn’t 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 have known Ollie all his life and they are amazing with him. Tŷ Hafan has been there for us all the way.”
Will you help Tŷ Hafan to continue to be a lifeline to families such as the Merediths 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 Farewill, a free online and telephone will writing service, to offer their supporters the opportunity to write a simple will for free. There’s 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.
