Principality Building Society has donated £100,000 to welcome its two-year charity partnerships with Tŷ Hafan and Hope House Tŷ Gobaith children’s hospices.
Colleagues at the largest building society in Wales voted overwhelmingly to support the two charities, who provide paediatric palliative care for hundreds of children across Wales and the borders each year.
Tŷ Hafan, who are based in south Wales, and Tŷ Gobaith who are based in north Wales and the borders, will work closely with Principality whose colleagues will endeavour to raise as much money as possible to make a difference to thousands of children and their families.
Maria Timon Samra, Chief Executive of Tŷ Hafan, said:
“Principality Building Society is an iconic Welsh financial institution, and it is an honour and privilege to have been chosen by Principality staff as their charity partner.
“Tŷ Hafan provides vital care and support for around 300 children with life-limiting conditions and their families in Wales every year, both in our hospice in Sully, and in the children’s own homes and communities across Wales.
“We are very much looking forward to working with our friends at Principality and with Tŷ Gobaith across Wales throughout the next two years, helping to share information about our charities. It will enable us to raise essential funds, allowing us to keep on providing our unique, holistic care services free of charge to children with life-limiting conditions, and their families.”
Vicky Wales, Chief Customer Officer at Principality Building Society said:
“Our colleagues have chosen two fantastic charities that are very close to our hearts and do great work in our communities helping children and their families. Colleagues at Principality have always shown such amazing creativity and dedication when it comes to fundraising in the past and we’re sure it will be no different over the next few years.
“Our purpose is to work much more closely with people who need our support across the regions we serve, to help provide them with more secure futures.”
