The Quantum Cardiff Office has formed a relationship with Tŷ Hafan, the hospice for children in Wales.
Tŷ Hafan offers comfort care and support to families with children expected to die in childhood, offering this unique service free of charge to families in Wales. The majority of Tŷ Hafan’s work is about “quality of life” rather than “end of life” and the focus is on “making the most of short and precious lives”.
It costs over £4 million a year to provide Tŷ Hafan’s state-of-the art facilities, which equates to almost £11,000 per day. We are participating in a ‘Pay for a Day’ initiative, with the intention to raise enough money to pay to keep the Ty Hafan hospice open for one day providing much needed care & support.
We are hoping to reach our goal by organising many internal and external events, details of which you will find below.
If you are interested in finding out more information about Tŷ Hafan please visit www.tyhafan.org.
We have reached our original goal of £11,000, we are now aiming to raise more.
On the 16th March around 180 colleagues, clients and friends of Quantum came together for a Black-tie Dinner to raise money for Ty Hafan. Welsh Rugby Union legend Paul Thorburn was the host for the evening, with superb jazz band Big Macs Wholly soul as lead entertainment.
The glamorous evening was a great success and we were able to raise a fantastic £10,000 through a sell-out balloon raffle and lively auction!
We held a fun filled skittles evening on 20th October 2017, raising £225 towards our next Ty Hafan goal!
We held our third successful charity quiz night on 19th May 2017, exceeding our expectations raising £500 through ticket sales and a raffle.
Goal Reached – Pay for a day ‘Gift Tree’
We are delighted to have raised our initial goal of £11,000 to pay for a day of care at the Ty Hafan hospice. We first started pushing to reach this amount in March 2016, originally aiming to achieve £11k within 18 months. Happily we managed to raise this in just under 12 months, and the official date that Quantum chose to ‘pay for’ was 12th March as this tied in with Quantum LLP’s 10th birthday.
As part of our pay for a day, a small group of us visited the hospice and received our inscribed apple which we placed onto the ‘gift tree’ in Ty Hafan’s head office. As well as this we also took part in some finger-painting, creating our very own masterpiece to display proudly!
Just because we have fulfilled our pay for a day does not mean we are stopping there and will continue with our efforts to raise money for this worthwhile charity.
On 4th November 2016, Quantum held a Quiz Night for colleagues and friends, with prizes, raffles and plenty of food and drink! It was a fun evening, with all proceeds from the ticket sales going towards our £11k goal.
Ty Hafan Donation Day
Quantum have also donated lots of wonderful items to the Ty Hafan Donation Day. Raising more money outside our pay for a day goal, estimated around 12 bags donated at £50 per bag.
Race to the Stones
On 16th July 2016, a team of over 20 colleagues from Quantum Advisory took part in the Race to the Stones challenge. This saw us take on the feat of walking 50km along the oldest path in Britain, as part of the Race to the Stones Ultra Marathon. This was certainly a challenge for those involved, even for the most avid walkers amongst us!
Spanning from the Chilterns in Oxfordshire to the North Wessex Downs, the Ridgeway is the oldest path in Britain. For five thousand years men and women have left their marks on the chalk paths and woodland tracks making it one of the most fascinating routes within the UK. More details on the Race to the Stones is available here:- http://www.racetothestones.com/
We exceeded our goal in raising £5,000 for Ty Hafan, thank you to all for your generosity! http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/QuantumAdvisory
