As 2018 begins we must say thank you to everyone who made Christmas a special time at Ty Olwen. Especially the staff who were on duty over the festive period and those who gave gifts for the staff and patients. Thank you again to members of the Morriston Orpheus Choir for making their annual visit to Ty Olwen to sing Carols. Your visit is always a joy for the patients, their families and the staff.
Every year, as a team we like to get involved with charities and we all choose one that’s close to our heart. We all know someone who’s been affected by Cancer, so we all thought it would be lovely this year, to hand over a hamper to Ty Olwen for the staff and families to enjoy over Christmas.

I hope they enjoy and a Merry Christmas to you all from all of us here at Virgin Atlantic!

When Jonathan Campbell was chosen as the Gower Golf Club Captain for 2016/17 he followed tradition and nominated a charity for the year. He chose Ty Olwen because he said he was aware of the excellent work that we offer the community and furthermore a close friend had recently benefitted from respite at the hospice. Having met his wife he had no hesitation in nominating the Ty Olwen Trust in his memory.
The Ladies Captain Mrs Kim Hughes agreed with his choice and chose to join her charitable events with his. There have been a number of events throughout the year starting with the Captain’s charity dinner in November followed by Spring and Summer Balls. The main fundraiser was the Captain’s Charity Golf Day with over 120 participants which raised over £1000. This with other events and various donations brought the total to over £3,420.
He wants to thank all the members of the Gower Golf Club together with family and friends who supported the events especially Kim and the Ladies section for their support throughout the year.
Jonathan added “I sincerely hope that this donation will contribute to the excellent work at Ty Olwen and the trust.”
