Judges of the prestigious awards said of Tŷ Hafan, “An incredible response this year from supporters and volunteers alike… and its virtual hospice programme took much-needed stress off the NHS.”
Maria Timon Samra, Chief Executive of Tŷ Hafan, said: “I’m so proud of Tŷ Hafan winning the charity award at Cardiff Life Awards 2021. It was truly an honour to be selected from this esteemed group.
“To say it couldn’t come at a better time is an understatement - the pandemic continues to create additional challenges, both in terms of care provision and income generation. However, in the spirit of our late founder Suzanne Goodall OBE, we are determined to be there, always, for the children and families who need us.
“This award is a real boost for my colleagues and is dedicated to all of our wonderful children and families, supporters and volunteers.”
Tŷ Hafan’s Director of Income, Phae Jones, and Senior PR Executive Sarah Roberts, received the bespoke slate trophy on behalf of the entire Tŷ Hafan community at a black-tie dinner at Cardiff City Hall on Thursday, September 30.
Fellow nominees in the Charity of the Year Award category were: The Gloves Are On, Aloud Charity, Cardiff and Vale Health Charity, City Hospice, Dreams and Wishes, Holibobs Children’s Cancer Charity and Pride Cymru.
