daniel saves his pocket money to buy PPE

10-year-old Daniel wanted to do something to help Tŷ Hafan in our efforts to protect children and our staff from Coronavirus, and has done exactly that with a selfless gesture that has put a smile on all of our faces here at the hospice.

Daniel Thomas, from Barry, wanted to do something to help Tŷ Hafan from home and was looking for a way to support that could really benefit the children and care team at the hospice.

With Tŷ Hafan being their local charity, Daniel’s family have supported the hospice a lot over the years and always try to help when they can, so when Daniel saw that the hospice was in need of PPE donations, he got involved.

He decided to gather up his pennies and save up his pocket money to purchase 600 pairs of medical, latex free gloves for our care team. He wanted to wait until he had £70 which meant he had enough money to buy the gloves in various sizes to suit everyone.

Daniel explained that Tŷ Hafan was his charity of choice because he wanted to “help the children and the wonderful carers who look after them” and “hopes they will be useful”. He’s even asked what else he can do to help raise money for the hospice!

Thank you, Daniel, for dropping off your very valuable donation this week and for playing your part in protecting children and staff from the virus.

P.S. we think you deserve some bonus pocket money this week...
