A Special Visit: Tŷ Gobaith
Many of our Media Panel Wales panellists choose to convert the rewards they earn for completing our surveys into charity donations. I arranged to visit one of our nominated charities, Tŷ Gobaith, to build on our relationship and share a little about their amazing work with you.
I met with Eluned Yaxley, Senior Area Fundraiser, to discuss the partnership between Media Panel Wales and Tŷ Gobaith and learn how donations provide care and support to terminally ill children and young people, and their families from North and Mid Wales. Eluned and the fundraising office is based within the walls of Conwy town, but the children’s hospice itself is situated in what must be one of the most stunning locations in Wales, overlooking the Conwy Valley.
I think it’s only natural to think that a hospice will be filled with sadness and unhappy faces, but in fact whilst a large majority of the children who attend Tŷ Gobaith do have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions, Tŷ Gobaith is a space for smiles too.
Staff and volunteers provide a safe, loving and happy environment for the children and their parents to make the very most of the precious time they have together.

The money raised by our members who fill in the simple weekly surveys about what they watch on TV is spent on delivering and developing care and experiences for the children and young people receiving the care.
