Ty Gobaith – Hope house Children’s Hospices

Beverley and Kelly, Fundraisers from Ty Gobaith Hospice joined us at our Zoom meeting in April and updated us on how they are coping during the Covid pandemic.

Tŷ Gobaith is just outside Conwy with stunning views across the estuary. It offers peace and tranquillity to the children and families who visit and is sensitive to the needs of the local population, many of whom speak Welsh as a first language.
There are four children’s bedrooms and three parents/family rooms. There is a multi-sensory room, young adult lounge, playroom, therapy room, kitchen and dining room and a parents’ lounge. The Snowflake suite enables families to stay close to their child after they have died and before the funeral.

Amazingly, they have managed to remain open to provide support and counselling for families requiring their services. It has been a very challenging time financially for them as with all charities and we at SI Bangor will certainly continue to support this wonderful charity.
They also talked about the poor level of funding by the Senedd, the smallest amount given of all the devolved nations, and less than the adult hospices received. We, as a club, will lobby the Welsh government especially with the Senedd elections coming up in May.
To help with raising funds they are having a bumper summer raffle sponsored by Pet Place.
