What Our Staff Get Up To!

Congratulations to Mrs Kinsey and Mrs Cooper who both ran the half marathon on Sunday for charities that are very important to them.

Miss Fry Does A Sponsored Walk

I love baking cakes. A while ago a friend asked me to bake for a charity event and it was a charity I hadn't heard of so I wanted to investigate. This is how I discovered Ty Hapus. They are a charity based in  wonderful centre in Barry. In this centre they offer support and advice for families affected by dementia - especially when it has affected someone relatively young (under 65).  They support the whole family because it is an illness that affects the whole family and can make life a real struggle.

Ty Hapus offer daytime respite care for patients, run therapy sessions, social events and even have a café where families can met or patients find some company.

In May I decided I wanted to do more for them so I planned a sponsored walk. Not a big event. Just me walking to raise money for this great charity. My goal was to raise £500 by walking just over 40 miles from my home to Cardiff Bay. In half term I did this walk, leaving home at 5am and arriving (with 2 very sore feet) in Cardiff Bay just before 6 in the evening.

My goal was to raise £500 but people have been amazing with their giving and I have raised over £1400.

It was a long, tough day but really worth it.
