Colleagues from more than 20 of the Co-op stores across North Wales joined forces and raised a phenomenal £13,500 to support Tŷ Gobaith.

The cash was raised through a series of fundraising initiatives including bike rides, duck races, hikes to the top of Snowdon, raffles and cake sales.

Receiving the cheque, Tŷ Gobaith Fundraiser Beverley Bradley said: “We are delighted with the support from the Co-op – the money raised will make a huge difference.

"It is our aim to ensure that terminally ill children – and their families – get the best possible quality of life, with access to specialist care and support, when and where they need it. We rely on the generous support of our volunteers and fundraisers, and this money will help us as we aim to reach every child, mum, dad, brother and sister who needs our help in the area.”

Carl Pettersson, Co-op Area Manager, said: “The Co-op is committed to connecting communities and, making a difference locally. This is a cause which colleagues felt passionate about supporting – the charity reaches families right across North Wales. We would like to thank everyone who took part. Together, all the money raised has added up to over £13,500 which will enable the charity to make a difference to the lives of families in need of support in our communities.”
