Carten100

This wonderful fundraising group www.carten100.co.uk have generously donated £3000 to Ty Olwen in memory of Graham Evans. We were pleased to welcome back to Ty Olwen Graham’s wife Elaine, sons Neil and Ian, brother in law Jack Shore (in the snazzy blazer) who along with Peter Palmer organise the annual event. The cheque was received by staff nurse Coral King (her last day on the ward before joining the Hospital/Community Team), Trainee Nurse Zoe Jones (her last day on the ward) and new team member Staff Nurse Ryan Rowlands.

A simple challenge, Cardiff to Tenby “100 miles, on a bike, in a day”. Not a race, not a sportive, just a ride to Tenby!

Three Peaks Challenge

So….we set out from Anglesey, cycling the full length of Wales over 3 days. As part of our journey we also decided to stop and scale on foot the three highest peaks – Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Cefn Bryn. As a group we wanted to take up a challenge that would test us both physically and mentally in order to raise as much money as possible for multiple charities, one of which was Ty Olwen. As a group we all know someone, family or friends, affected by the illness and the physical and mental anguish it causes. We are incredibly grateful to have such fantastic charities like Ty Olwen helping in the fight against cancer within our local community and have seen first hand the work you do. We just wanted to give a little something back so you guys can continue to support others and keep up the great work.

Team member Steve Raikes recently presented a cheque to Ty Olwen £1112 to ward host Mal and Helen on their behalf.

Regards,
Tom Davies and The Three Peaks Cycle Team

Lewis & Isaac Coaching Team

Sharon was delighted to meet Wayne & Sue Isaac yesterday to receive on behalf of Ty Olwen the amazing donation of £3156, the proceeds of the recent Three Day Charity Drive by the Lewis and Isaac Coaching Team. Unfortunately, partner Derek Lewis, was unable to be with us last night but our sincere thanks to him too. They did the drive by way of a thank you to Ty Olwen for looking after Wayne’s step-daughter Alison Thomas some 8 years ago and enabling her to have her last wish and pass away with dignity at home.
