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!

It was in November 2017 that we first had the pleasure of meeting Jo Williams and her daughters Darcie and Maddi, her niece Alex and their friend Atlanta who had raised £1,600 for Ty Olwen by running the Swansea 10K. Jo was in for a few days and in the words of the girls “Having seen at first hand the amazing care and support they offer to their patients, we really wanted to give something back to this place” Sadly Jo passed away in January but the family have continued raising money for Ty Olwen and Sister Karren was delighted to welcome them last Thursday when they presented an amazing amount of £6,849.95
