Care farm coffee morning
4:31pm Tuesday 31st December 2013 in News
Clynfyw Care Farm’s first charity coffee morning of the New Year will be on Friday 10th January in aid of the Tuberous Sclerosis Association.
‘This is a small, underfunded charity dedicated to provide support for those with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex,’ said Jim Bowen, Clynfyw’s manager. ‘TSC is a genetic condition affecting 8,000 people in the UK. Currently there is no cure, though the TSC is working hard to try to find one.’
Children with TSC can have growths in their brains, heart, eyes, kidneys, lungs or on their skin. They may also have epilepsy, learning disabilities, autism spectrum disorder and renal problems.
‘The son of a very good friend of mine was born with TSC a few years ago,’ said Jim. ‘We really want to do something to support them and other families with children who have TSC.’
This will be Clynfyw’s third charity coffee. The first two raised over £100 for the British Hen Welfare Trust and the British Institute of Human Rights. ‘We were amazed to raise so much at a simple coffee morning,’ Jim said, ‘but as important was awareness raising involved with over fifty people coming to each event. We really hope we can do the same thing for the TSA.’
Fiona Pedlar, a highly experienced Sound Therapist, will also be running a Sound Therapy session on the 10th, providing a deeply relaxing, stress-relieving experience. ‘This would be a great introduction to the effect that sound and vibration have on health and wellbeing.’
Clynfyw host a coffee morning on the second Friday of each month. The coffee morning starts at 10.30 and everyone is welcome.
