Ty Hafan

Event update - Event Postponed

As we have experienced a reduction in registrations, due to the ongoing risk of Covid cases, we have made the difficult decision to postpone our planned walk event in Barry this Sunday until the spring. We hope you will be able to participate once a new date has been set. Thank you for all your ongoing support.

We’re back with our first in person event and what better place to hold it than on the doorstep of Tŷ Hafan, in Barry. Join us for a 2.5 mile walk on Sunday 26 September 2021 from Jackson’s Bay to Friars point and back.

You’ll walk along Clement Colley path, taking in the breath-taking views of the Welsh sea and the sweet smell of candy floss and fish and chips.

We’ve put this event on to recognise the contribution of our care team and to thank them. That’s why we’re asking you to Walk a Day in Their Shoes and help raise vital funds for our hospice and community services in your area. This will enable us to provide essential care and support for children and their families in Wales with life-limiting conditions.

The event is open to all ages and the route is accessible for all. We will set off at 10:00am and we are encouraging those taking part to wear something green!

Registration is £5 and you’ll receive a pair of exclusive shoelaces in the post. Raise £25 in sponsorship and receive a bespoke medal you’ll treasure forever!

The safety of staff, volunteers, participant’s and members of the general public is of the upmost important to us and we will be implementing Covid safety measures.
