iconic lego ‘nessa’ made for tŷ hafan

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on a limited edition LEGO ‘Nessa’ at the weekend you will have been supporting Tŷ Hafan at the same time!

A fantastic St David’s Day campaign, run by St Davids shopping centre in Cardiff, saw five Welsh mini legends created out of LEGO pieces to celebrate Wales’ national day on the 1 March.

We were lucky enough to be involved in the project and were picked as the charity to benefit from the sales of the special ‘Nessa’ figurine! (Just look how “immense” she looks…)

The other Welsh legends included Gareth Bale, Gareth ‘Alfie’ Thomas, Sir Tom Jones and Dame Shirley Bassey, with the proceeds going to four other very worthy causes in Wales.

Customers queued up on St David’s Day to buy the figurines and gave a minimum donation of £5 for each icon. Collectively, everyone’s donations came to over £2,500!

We’re sending a HUGE thank you to St David’s shopping centre for supporting us and other local charities across Wales.
