The Trade Centre Wales gets colourful with Tŷ Hafan
The Trade Centre Wales has supported the Welsh children’s hospice, Tŷ Hafan, through the sponsorship of one of the charity’s key fundraising events.
Rainbow Fun Run
The Rainbow Run is an annual event held across four locations in Wales, seeing hundreds of participants run or walk 5km, being showered with brightly-coloured powder at each turn.
The Trade Centre Wales pledged itself as the headline sponsor for the Swansea Rainbow Run, staffing paint throwing stands, helping to set up the course on the day, as well as cheering on the runners.
Hosted at Barry, Porthcawl, Tredegar and Swansea, the fun runs challenge runners to raise a minimum of £50 in sponsorship each in order to take part in the race, raising thousands each year for the charity.
“A vital cause”
Commenting on the event, Dan Burt, marketing assistant for The Trade Centre Wales, said: “The care and support that Tŷ Hafan provides to children, young adults and their families, at what can only seem like an impossibly difficult time in their lives, is vital. Events such as the Rainbow Runs really connect with local communities and we’re all about backing causes that positively impact on our customers and local area.
“We’re so proud to be supporting Tŷ Hafan and look forward to actively fundraising and working with them in the near future.”
