Our Tŷ Hafan golden apple

By Niche, 2nd Dec 2021
3 min read

Compliance and HR Director, Tom Roberts, and Office Manager, Dee Hyde, were delighted to visit the Tŷ Hafan Hospice in Sully recently to receive and add Niche's gold apple to Tŷ Hafan's exclusive tree in their welcome area.

The apples are given as recognition to businesses and individuals that have raised sufficient funds to run the hospice for a day. In 2019 Niche were able to raise over £14,000 for Tŷ Hafan, surpassing the target of £12,050. Due to the pandemic it's taken some time for us to be able to visit the hospice to receive our apple, however we remain very proud of our achievement as the team put in a lot of hard work when it comes to fund raising.

The funds raised came from a combination of our Monmouthshire Three Peaks Challenge, donations being made at the charity's annual ball, and being able to support and promote Tŷ Hafan through the digital billboard on the side of the office.

It's no easy job running such an incredible children's hospice and it now costs £12,271 a day for Tŷ Hafan to be able to provide their unique care and support to children with life-limiting conditions and their families. Throughout the pandemic the hospice has undergone significant essential renovations and relies on donations more than ever. Due to the heightened risk of having very clinically vulnerable children at the hospice, Tom and Dee weren't able to have a full tour of the hospice to see the renovations but are looking forward to a time when when the Covid risk has decreased so that they can do so.

To be able to raise enough money to support Tŷ Hafan for just 1 day is both a great achievement that the Niche team are very proud of, and a sobering thought of the substantial resources needed to be able to provide such amazing support to children and their families where it is needed the most.

Tom - Niche Director

Niche were able to continue fundraising for Tŷ Hafan, and other charities, throughout the lockdowns in 2020 and in 2021. Tom, Cameron (Senior Paraplanner) and Mark Douglas (Commercial Consultant) participated in a dizzying and rapid zipwire in July in aid of Tŷ Hafan. Most recently Operations Director, Aled Phillip, ran the London Marathon in support of NSPCC Cymru and was able to raise over £3,300. We also continue to support charities through our digital billboard, with a regular charity of the quarter, and we were happy to provide support throughout the global pandemic.

Our team are always looking for new fundraising ideas and are always happy to support good causes, so feel free to get in touch with any ideas. On a professional note, our specialist advisers have experience in working with and advising charity trustees on their specific investment responsibilities, and are always on hand to provide advice - please get in touch should you require our assistance.
