In Memory of Clare Ellis

Llanrhidian  holiday park in Gower has helped raise £8,200 for Ty Olwen in memory of Clare Ellis. The park was approached to fundraise for the hospice by her husband Billy who lost his wife to cancer two years ago. Billy explained to Kate Murray, Ty Olwen Young Ambassador, that his wife had gone into the hospice on three occasions during her illness and the nurses had not only been wonderful to his wife but also to him and his family. He couldn’t thank them enough for what they had done.

Park manager Mitzy Richards said “Ty Olwen looked after Clare, and I visited her there. They cared for her so well that Billy wanted to give something back and he has been the driving force behind this. They do such a good job and it is a local charity and local people should support local charities”.

The holiday park raised the funds with a Baggy Trousers Evening, its annual carnival, numerous raffles and other events. The park is hoping to raise even more money for Ty Olwen with a record breaking event in August. Organisers are hoping to enter the Guiness record book by holding the biggest head-shaving event. It will need 400 people to loose their hair with each person paying £5 to the charity. If you would like to get involved you can contact the park on 01792 391083.
