Staff at Dafydd Hardy have raised £1,500 for Hospice at Home

Staff members at Dafydd Hardy’s Holyhead branch have raised a fantastic £1,500 for Hospice at Home.

The palliative care charity, which recently merged with St David’s Hospice, works to provide high-quality care to patients wishing to live out their final days at home.

It certainly was a day for festivities, as our thoughtful staff donned their elf attire and greeted customers.

Singing For Pleasure, a singing group from Benllech, were on hand throughout the day to provide the Christmas Songs.

There was music, mince pies, and mulled wine – a great chance for the customers and passers-by to get to know the staff at our office.

As well as the cake sale, money was raised by our Memory Tree – generous customers could donate a small fee to hang a bauble with a personalised message for a loved one on our Christmas tree. By the end of the event, the tree was festooned with baubles and messages of festive cheer.

There was also the opportunity to take part in a raffle, with some fabulous prizes on offer, including alcohol and Rib Ride tickets.

Dafydd Hardy, co-founder said “This was a fantastic event organised by our Holyhead team and the Land and New Homes manager, Penny Lofts. I’m proud to say they raised £1,500 for an excellent cause and a charity I’m very close to.”

Hospice at Home are planning to create a specialist palliative care ward in Penrhos Stanley Hospital, Holyhead, meaning that local people won’t have to travel as far as Llandudno to see their loved ones or to receive care.
