An online charity event is set to take place on Saturday in support of Tŷ Hafan after lockdown restrictions cancelled their yearly fundraiser.
Set up by a local musician and her husband, the event will replace the one usually organised by the charity themselves.
‘Summer Festival in Aid of Tŷ Hafan,’ will stream on Facebook between 12pm and 11pm on Saturday 4th July.
The event organiser from Sully, Vale of Glamorgan, said: “We set up the event for Tŷ Hafan because they are missing theirs."
With just two days before the event takes place, they have already raised £500 but hope the figure will double by Saturday.
Donations can be made through the event’s Just Giving page and those who contribute will automatically qualify for an online raffle.
There will be a mixture of local and international musicians taking part, as well as comedians and circus acts.
Local musician, Patsy Hunt, decided to take part as she felt it was a great way to raise money for the charity whilst bringing the community together.
She said: “It’s been a challenging time for charities during lockdown because they rely on their shops for income.
“For Tŷ Hafan, over a quarter of their income comes from retail.
“An online event is a great because people can get involved wherever they are.”
You can watch the event live from 12pm Saturday, 4th of July, on the ‘Summer Festival in Aid of Tŷ Hafan’ Facebook page.
