About the Charity: Tŷ Gobaith offer a range of services including respite and end-of-life care at two hospices and/or within the family home, along with support such as counselling and advocacy. Bereavement support is offered to all children, young people and family members for as long as is needed.
A bit about Fundraising: Your help is vital so that Tŷ Gobaith can provide the care and support that our children, young people and families so desperately need. To maintain their services Tŷ Gobaith must raise over £6.3 million every year. They only receive just one month’s funding from statutory bodies.
On Thursday 12 October Maesdu Golf Club hosted a Charity Golf Day in aid of Tŷ Gobaith Children’s Hospice raising £7879. Eighteen teams took part and the competition was won by our very own John and Margaret Haydon along with Joan James and Bill Shallcross. The runners up were Alan and Joan Mumby with Clive and Christine Brown.
After an evening meal in our James Braid Restaurant there was a raffle and then trophies were presented to the winning team, runners up, nearest the pin and longest drive by Maesdu Club Captain, Steve Williams, and Brenig Directors, Howard Vaughan and Mark Parry.
Beverley Bradley, Area Fundraiser for Tŷ Gobaith said “We are truly grateful to Maesdu and all the teams who helped make this event so enjoyable and for raising a fantastic £7879 for local life-threatened and life-limited children and their families who use Tŷ Gobaith. They even arranged the weather! All the Golfers enjoyed the day so much that a date has already been put in the diary for 2018!”.
