Thank you Lesley for sharing April’s story with us. The staff were thrilled to meet her when she presented a cheque for a whopping £1,050 to Ty Olwen.
When April’s Bampa passed away in February she was keen to know that he didn’t suffer so we told her all about the amazing care he received at Ty Olwen. As a family we were shocked to discover that this wonderful place relies heavily on donations and when April learned of this she immediately wanted to help. She asked if we would sponsor her to walk 10,000 steps a day for the whole of March. When we mentioned this to friends and family they were all keen to sponsor April too. Her school friends also supported and sponsored her. For the 31 days of March April walked at least 10,000 steps every day, even when we travelled back and fore to Cambridge one weekend she got her steps in by running around the hotel and refusing to take taxis for the two miles into town.
We are so proud of April who is thrilled to be have been a little help to such a worthy cause in memory of her beloved Bampa.
