We were very pleased to visit the Pheonix Ladies Circle in Murton last night and receive a cheque from them for £750 towards Ty Olwen. Secretary and Assistant Chairperson Cynthia Hicks presented the cheque to Helen on behalf of the group. Thank you also for the anonymous additional donation of £100 from one of their members who couldn’t be present but had experienced first hand the care that Ty Olwen gives.
A massive thank you to Mike from Lee Mill Fabrics, Oxford St for his continued support and this time sponsoring the scarves for the DVLA “Tunes for Ty Olwen” Choir.
Sister Karren, Staff Nurse Maria and Health Care Assistant Aimee were delighted to meet up with husband Kevin and the family of Jenny Harwood this week when they returned to Ty Olwen to present a cheque for £685, the proceeds of a ‘Musical Evening’ held at the Bay View in celebration of Jenny’s life. In the photo Kevin presented the cheque to Maria whilst sons Rene and Paul looked on and Sister Karren was left literally holding the baby – grandson Felix. It was also nice to meet Jenny’s mum Edna who joined us but wasn’t keen to have her photo taken!
