Newport-based legal conveyancing specialist Convey Law is the headline sponsor for the Welsh phase of a gruelling challenge aiming to raise funds for a children’s hospice charity.

Between July 5 and 7, a group of 13 men will climb five UK mountains in 55 hours to raise funds for Tŷ Hafan, the children’s hospice in Wales.

Lloyd Davies, managing director of Convey Law, whose offices are on Stow Hill in Newport city centre, is sponsoring the Welsh phase which will see the team tackling Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Pen y Fan.

Prior to this, they will have already scaled Ben Nevis in Scotland and Scafell Pike in England.

The entire challenge will be completed within 55 hours, including travel time.

The 13 men taking part in the challenge share a special, bitter-sweet bond which most people will never have – they’re all part of a family with children who have life-limiting conditions.

They belong to the Tŷ Hafan Dads’ group – a support network that formed in 2008 for fathers of children who have used Tŷ Hafan now or in the past. The group enables dads to meet others in the same situation, helping them share their worries and fears about having a child with a life-limiting condition.

Tŷ Hafan, with its community programmes and hospice based care, has been part of the men’s journey, providing comfort and support and helping them spend what time they have with their children in the best possible way.

Convey Law’s relationship with Tŷ Hafan began 10 years ago and during that time the company has raised more than £300,000 for the hospice.

Lloyd was asked to be a Tŷ Hafan corporate ambassador some five years ago and has enjoyed being involved with the fundraising team and helping to engage others with the hospice.

He said: “It’s a privilege to be involved with Tŷ Hafan. It is a wonderful uplifting environment which is so important for the children and families that need our help.

“This challenge is about the Tŷ Hafan dads who are demonstrating no matter how difficult the challenges are that life throws at you, with determination and resilience – and time and patience – you can win though – no matter what."
