walk a day in their shoes for tŷ hafan this september
There's an old saying, ‘You can’t understand another person’s experience until you’ve walked a day in their shoes”. At Tŷ Hafan, there are many shoes that help keep the doors open for our families, especially during these difficult months and we wanted to share some of their stories with you.
When you think of Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice and the staff that help care for our families, you might not realise the variety of roles, skillsets, personalities and resilience we are so lucky to have.
Put yourself in their shoes.
To recognise their contribution and thank them, we want you to take part in our exciting new challenge. We’re asking you to walk a day in their shoes and pledge to raise vital funds for the hospice and community services in your area, through the essential care and support for children and their families in Wales with life-limited conditions.
How does it work?
Are you ready to put your best foot forward?
Always wanted to understand what a day in the life of a care team member at Tŷ Hafan was like? Well sign up today free of charge and receive your green laces in the post before 1 September!
