On the 25th of July, Swansea University Healthcare Science students have organised a sponsored 10km Fancy Dress Walk to raise awareness and money for Tŷ Hafan.

The first year students have organised the event with a goal of raising £250 for Tŷ Hafan charity that provides holistic palliative care for children with life-limiting conditions and their families throughout Wales.

Charlotte Harries, said: “Being Healthcare Science students, on placement we encounter children with a variety of conditions including: epilepsy, deafness, heart conditions and other life limiting conditions, being able to support a charity that helps children with similar conditions was something that means a lot to us.” 

Alice Davies, Audiology Lecturer said: “They are a fantastic group of students who are passionate about caring for others.

Often encountering children with serious and life limiting illnesses within their professions, they felt Ty Hafan was the perfect charity to fundraise for.”

Tŷ Hafan offers comfort, care and support to life-limited children and their families helping them make the most of the time they have left together. For Tŷ Hafan to offer this service free of charge to families in Wales, it has to raise £4 million every year.
