VISITORS to a charity’s shops in Wales will be giving a double helping hand to terminally ill children over the next few days.

Customers at Tŷ Hafan shops who purchase a product from any of the stores will see thir donation be doubled as part of the charity’s When Your World Stops We’re There fundraising appeal.

The Tŷ Hafan shops at Cardigan, Carmarthen, Lampeter, Llanelli, Aberdare, Abergavenny, Aberystwyth, Barry, Caerphilly, Cardiff, Cowbridge, Cwmbran, Neath, Newport, Penarth, Porthcawl, Port Talbot and Talbot Green will be having their donations from sales of products matched between Saturday, November 25 and Tuesday, November 28.

John Lowes, head of fundraising for Tŷ Hafan, said: “Every penny spent in any of our shops between now and 10pm on Tuesday, November 28 will be doubled in value thanks to match-funding.

“And the same goes for any donations made in store or online or on the phone.

“Our target is to raise £350,000 so that we can keep on providing vital care and support for families like the Morrises from Ammanford who have bravely shared their story to support our appeal.

“So, if you’re planning a pre-Christmas clear out then there has never been a better time to pop into your nearest Tŷ Hafan shop, donate your unwanted items and pick up some bargains for Christmas.”

To donate, visit one of the stores or head to, email or call 02920 532255.
