Welsh children’s hospice gets state-of-the-art kitchen

A brand new cooking space to rival the best luxury built kitchens in Cheshire or Mayfair has been installed at the Ty Hafan children’s hospice in the Vale of Glamorgan.

The kitchen of Ty Hafan, which opened in Sully during 1999, has always been at the heart of the building, with staff, residents and their families often congregating there. It is used for everything from preparing home-cooked meals to relaxing with a nice cup of tea and a friendly ear, which is why the kitchen area was in dire need of an upgrade.

Staff and residents at Ty Hafan are now reportedly thrilled with the newly transformed kitchen, which has been fitted with state-of-the-art fixtures. This is thanks to fundraising efforts by the public and a number of generous donations by local companies.

Speaking to the Penarth Times about the kitchen refit, the director of care at Ty Hafan, Jayne Saunders, said:

“We aim to create a homely atmosphere for our families which is why the new kitchen is a wonderful addition to the hospice. The refurbishment provides a positive and uplifting environment and the feedback we’ve had from families has been fantastic.”

The refurbishment, which cost £140,000, has transformed the kitchen into a modern catering facility, which can also be used for cooking therapy. A separate cooking space has been installed for domestic use, which can be used by visiting families, enabling them to have more independence during their stays at the hospice.
