Walters supports “Snowdogs” with Ty Hafan/The Amelia Farm Trust
Walters have recently supported the Amelia Trust Farm by funding their ‘pup sculpture’ entry into the Ty Hafan organised sculpture trail ‘Snowdogs – Tails in Wales’. The initiative aims to raise money for good causes and get friends, families and local businesses engaged in a fun activity that gets them out in the open air, exploring their the local area and making their own precious memories along the route.
The trail will consist of some 40 Large sculptures (1.5m) positioned around Cardiff City and key positions in the Vale – painted by professional artists and sponsored by businesses, then auctioned at the end of the trail.
The money raised from Snowdogs: Tails in Wales will help the charities to continue providing care and support to children and young people with life-limiting conditions and their families throughout Wales.
Ty Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and offers the only children’s hospice service in South Wales. Although the hospice is based in Sully, the dedicated team offers comfort, care and support to life-limited children, young people and families throughout Wales so they can make the most of the time they have left together. Every penny donated helps children, and Walters are more than happy to have helped with this worthwhile project in addition to the other landscaping work we undertook for them in their Wheelchair Accessible nature trail recently as part of the M4CAN team.
The Amelia Trust Farm runs a programme for young people who are struggling in mainstream education perhaps because they have suffered abuse or neglect or are statemented with neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD or autism. They think that society has given up on them and feel worthless and that life has nothing to offer them. Without the right type of care and support this highly vulnerable group enter adulthood without the life skills people need to cope let alone succeed. They also extend their caring and nurturing environment to adults with learning disabilities and are open to the general public throughout the year. With woodland walks, animals to see, play areas and a cafe there is plenty to do and enjoy.
Walters are proud to support two such great charities and we look forward to seeing the pup’s in Cardiff and around the Vale of Glamorgan from the 16th of September to the 27th of November.
