Tŷ Hafan Firewalk

For the second time, I photographed people walking over hot coals for Tŷ Hafan.  And I am thankful that I was behind the camera and not in front of it!  Congratulations to all the amazing Tŷ Hafan supporters who took on the challenge at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 17th March 2024 to fundraise… Read More

Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon) 2023

At 4am in the morning, just as the sun starts to rise, the intrepid teams set out on the Welsh 3 Peaks for Tŷ Hafan.  The first challenge is to climb Yr Wyddfa (Snowdon), the highest peak in Wales.  The ascent to the top is 639m, where the walkers gaze for miles across the Eryri… Read More

Cadair Idris 2023

Cadair Idris is always the mountain that the teams fear most on the Tŷ Hafan Welsh 3 Peaks.  The 803m climb  is the highest of all three mountains, starting in the base of the valley and climbing near vertically up steps through an old wood before reaching the sweeping path that takes you to the… Read More

Pen-y-Fan 2023

The final mountain of the Tŷ Hafan Welsh 3 Peaks in Pen-y-Fan.  Normally it is a straight forward 440m climb to the top, but with tired legs after already scaling Yr Wyddfa and Cadair Idris, it is anything but easy.

Tŷ Hafan Fire Walking

It is an understatement to say that some people were nervous at the prospect of walking over hot coals which registered over 1,000 degs C.  Nevertheless, an amazing group of Tŷ Hafan supporters took on the challenge at the Cardiff City Stadium on Sunday 23rd October 2022 to fundraise for the young person’s hospice.  Congratulations… Read More

Tŷ Hafan Fun Day 2022

For me, photographing the Tŷ Hafan Fun Day is like a social event.  This year’s event, held at the children’s hospice near Sully in South Wales, was the first since 2019 due to the pandemic.  I have had the pleasure of photographing the event for many years and every time I get meet so many… Read More
