Convey Law’s Favourite Charities

We work with a number of charities, who benefit from the Free Legal Fee Competition and our other fundraising initiatives on a monthly basis.

Ty Hafan offers comfort, care and support for life-limited children and young people and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the whole family. This comfort and support extends out of the hospice and reaches right into the heart of the family home.

Ty Hafan was established in 1999 and since then has he lped over 500 families, who live with the dreadful reality that their children with life-limiting conditions may not reach 19 years of age.

Ty Hafan is not part of the health service and receives just 13% statutory funding towards the £3million needed to provide care and support for life-limited families. To continue to offer this unique service to families, Ty Hafan relies on the generosity of the public, corporate sponsors and volunteers.

Please visit the Ty Hafan website at www.tyhafan.co.uk

Below are some of our other favourite charities that we support on a regular basis.

Gift of Independence
Gift of Independence
Convey Law raised funds through the Conveyancing Foundation Free Legal Fee Competition to purchase a specially adapted recumbent bicycle for little Evan Hale. Evan suffers from cerebral palsy, which affects his balance and mobility.

Evan’s mum commented:
“Evan is on top of the world. It was a fabulous day for both of us! We took him out after school yesterday and to watch him zip off on his own is beyond amazing. You have given him the gift of independence and for that we are both extremely grateful.”
