A celebration dinner in memory of Carys Roberts, Artist and Teacher, was arranged by her family and recently held at the Langland Bay Golf Club. Her husband Alan and brother Geraint today presented cheques for £2,020 to Paul Murray, Vice Chairman of the Ty Olwen Trust.
A huge thank you to the workforce at Ford Engine Plant in Bridgend for supporting our work. They recently raised over £7,000, in memory of three of their colleagues by organising a sponsored bike ride and also by donating their pay from the last hour of a day. Trustee Neal Francis visited the plant to receive the donation and the following day to meet the plant manager Wallace Yearwood and receive a further donation of £125 from his discretionary fund. Then the proceeds of a raffle at their recent family fun day raised a further £4,800 for us. Trustees Neal and Joy Francis and their son Bradley were delighted to attend on the day to represent Ty Olwen and meet with Mark Thomas who organised the day whilst Bradley had a great day out visiting all the exhibits. These incredible donations allow us to carry on with purchases to provide the best possible facilities for the comfort of our patients including the recently purchased specialist chairs by the side of each bed.
