Anwyl has donated £20,000 to Ty Gobaith & Hope House Children’s Hospices, raised through the housebuilder’s pledge to donate £90 for every home sold to charity in its 90th anniversary year.

The funds will assist the hospices to continue their vital work in caring for children and their families in Shropshire, Cheshire, Mid and North Wales with life-threatening conditions.

Ewloe-based Anwyl Homes has a long-standing relationship with the charity, which includes Ty Gobaith in Conwy and Hope House in Oswestry, having donated more than £130,000 since the hospices were built.

Beverley Bradley, corporate fundraiser at Ty Gobaith & Hope House, said: “We are delighted that Anwyl have continued to support Ty Gobaith & Hope House Children’s Hospices once again with our Final Moments Matter Campaign. The last 18 months have been so difficult and to know that we can rely on Anwyl’s ongoing generosity means so much to our life limited babies, children, young adults and their families.

“Our partnership with Anywl started even before Hope house opened in 2005 when we were raising funds to build our first children’s hospice and over the years Anwyl have donated in excess of £130,000, for which we are truly grateful.”

Graham Anwyl, chairman of Anwyl, said: “We could not think of a worthier cause to receive this donation to mark our 90th anniversary than Ty Gobaith & Hope House Children’s Hospices. It’s difficult to put into words how vital their care and support is for families in this area who are going through such difficult times. We are proud to have been supporting this wonderful charity for more than 15 years.”

It costs £6.5 million a year to run Ty Gobaith & Hope House Children’s Hospices and their services. Just one month’s income comes from statutory sources and the charity relies on donations to cover costs for the other 11 months of the year.
