Throughout the year, there are loads of fantastic fundraising events you can get involved in to support the life-changing work of Tŷ Hafan.

You could take part in an official Tŷ Hafan event such as Ride to the Rugby, conquer a challenge event in the UK or overseas, or organise your own slice of fun to raise money – something our fundraising toolkit is here to help you out with.

 So take a look around and see if anything grabs your fancy. And remember that whatever you do, it will help to bring comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and their families.
