But they could never have imagined the difficult road that lay ahead of them. Read More

We kicked off the festive season in style with our Christmas at the Castle event last Friday. We sang along to seasonal soulful sounds under the stars, shopped till we dropped at our Christmas craft market, feasted on festive treats and watched an enchanting firework display over the castle keep. Check out our video round-up here to get a glimpse of all the fun!

Back in September, we were delighted to take a group of fundraisers over to @DisneylandParis for the Run Disney weekend. Hospice family, the Harvey's, took on the challenge and mum, Pauline, writes this week's #FamilyFriday to tell of her Tŷ Hafan journey "Tŷ Hafan supported us throughout Abigail’s short life, they were there at the end, and they continue to support us in bereavement. We want to raise awareness of the wonderful work Tŷ Hafan does so that other families won’t shy away from making that first contact, so that they too can be bolstered by the love and support available at Tŷ Hafan." https://zurl.co/FOO8

Just 19 days to go until Christmas! Hopefully you've at least started your Christmas shopping and maybe had a mince pie or two. As we wind down for the holidays, routine remains the same for Tŷ Hafan families. Read Hilary's story of how staying at Tŷ Hafan over Christmas can be such a relief to her and her daughter Ellie. "Tŷ Hafan makes our family Christmas, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else on Christmas day. " #BeingThere365 https://zurl.co/QS3E

We’ve joined forces with Powys Teaching Heath Board to introduce our first ever Tŷ Hafan Community Nurse. Specialist paediatric palliative care nurse, Sara Jones (pictured), will be working for 2 days a week across Powys to reach more families with life limited children, offering them palliative care and support.

Every child has a right to play. That's why we're excited to announce this year we will again be part of @StDavidsCardiff’s #SDToyAppeal! Starting on 1st December, we’ll need YOUR help to get 10,000 toys in 23 days! Find out more here http://bit.ly/SDtoyappeal
