Supporting Alder Hey
One of the charities we support it Alder Hey hospital in Liverpool, where a number of children from Gwynedd and Anglesey receive cancer treatment.
A donation of £20,000 was made to the oncology unit last year to fund two rooms at the new hospital. Gafael Llaw’s name can be seen on the door of these rooms.
We have also recently donated a selection of Welsh books for the reading corner at the Oncology and Haemotology Unit, so that children from Wales can enjoy reading Welsh books during their time at the hospital.
Gafael Llaw supports fun days out for children with cancer and their families.
In the past they have visited the zoo, pantomime, Greennwood Forest Park and a boat ride along the Menai straits.
Ward Dewi improvements
A significant amount of Gafael Llaw money is being spent on improvements at Ward Dewi (the children’s’ ward) at Ysbyty Gwynedd.
£20,000 was invested in a new playground, which has been completely transformed to provide a colourful, attractive and exciting playing area for the children.
The money has also been spent on making visual improvements to the ward. Gary Drew, a local artist was commissioned to decorate on of the oncology cubicles on the ward, and he will be doing much more of the same over the next few months.
25 children from the ward and their families recently went on a Gafael Llaw trip to Colwyn Bay zoo. They all had a lovely day in the sun.
Ward Dewi Sister, Eleri Fôn said:
“The sun came out all afternoon, and we had such a nice trip. Thank you so much for all that you do to raise money for the ward.”— Ward Dewi Sister, Eleri Fôn
Ward Dewi painting 2017
Your money has been used to transform the corridor walls at Ward Dewi, Ysbyty Gwynedd. The talented artist Gary Drew was commissioned to paint the fantastic murals, as a result the look and feel of the ward is much approved with the children loving the new images!
A huge thank you to Gafael Llaw for funding our newly painted corridor walls on Dewi Ward. Thanks to Gary Drew Mural Artist for the amazing artwork.— Carian Roberts from the Children’s Ward at Ysbyty Gwynedd
