A NEWPORT motor factory has raised more than £1,000 for the family hospice for young lives, Ty Hafan.
The money was raised on behalf of Fast Parts Wales’ customer base of independent garages in the South Wales as part of their involvement in the Fast Parts Technical Training Centre.
As part of its continued support for Ty Hafan, Fast Parts general manager, Nathan Travis, area sales representative, Carl Wilkins, and Cwmbran parts adviser, Gregg Dyson, all agreed to take part in Ty Hafan’s Christmas pantomime.
Staff took it upon themselves to gather donations in support of the trio and, in just two days, raised more than £1,200, which was put towards gifts for the children of the hospice.
Alison Stallard, of Ty Hafan, said: “The efforts of the Fast Parts team in raising much needed funds for the charity has been overwhelming, matched only by the generosity of time they have given to the charity in playing leading roles in our Christmas pantomine.
“They were an absolute hit and will be invited back next year by popular demand.”
Recently the children who stayed at Ty Hafan were treated to a visit from Cardiff City players and rugby star Leigh Halfpenny.
