The Curry Night was a very enjoyable occasion with good food and good friends. Thank you to all those who came along to support the Appeal. It is much appreciated. Your generosity raised £1,100! Thank you also to Harry who entertained us with his talent on the guitar and his singing and who had us all rocking and clapping our hands in accompaniment at the end!
The Charity Commission has approved a change of name for the Appeal. It is now to be known as
TŶ CYMORTH (CARMARTHEN AND DISTRICT) HOSPICE CARE APPEAL
The Annual General Meeting was held on Wednesday, 20th June 2018 at 6pm at Tŷ Cymorth. Before the election of Officers for 2018/2019, the Trustees’ Report, the Financial Report, and the Fundraising Committee Report were presented and accepted by the AGM.
In the Trustees’ Report, the President, Dr Mark Turtle, summarised the deliberations of the Trustees over the past year and set out their objectives for funding in the short and medium term. These would include support for the work of the hospice within the community as well as in Tŷ Cymorth itself.This aspect reflects a change of culture towards hospice care nationwide, as more patients choose to be supported in their own homes by specialist palliative care staff, and access specialist equipment where appropriate.
To underline and clarify this broader definition of hospice care, a decision was taken to change the name of the Appeal. This decision had the unanimous support of all present; the change of name was later endorsed and approved by the Charity Commission.
The Financial Report was given by the Treasurer. With reference to the list of donations, the Trustees wished to emphasise that financial support from the Appeal is given to the service as a whole, in the short or medium term. Requests to provide specific items need to be discussed with Tŷ Cymorth staff.
Full details of the Financial Report are available from the Treasurer.(See contact details on the website).
A review of the year’s fundraising activities was given by the Secretary of the Fundraising Committee.
