QUANTUM Advisory, one of the UK’s leading actuarial and pension consulting firms, recently took part in Tŷ Hafan’s Football Fives tournament and raised £1,500.

Team Quantum came together to compete in a round-robin league to earn a position in the tournament’s knockout stages at Gôl Centres in Cardiff. The team made it to the semifinal of the ‘Europa League’, but, against fierce competition, narrowly missed out on a spot in the final.

Despite not taking home the title, the firm was presented with the ‘Best Tŷ Hafan Fundraisers’ trophy by former Cardiff City, Celtic, Crystal Palace and Welsh International midfielder, Joe Ledley, in recognition of their support.

Quantum Advisory is a longstanding supporter of Tŷ Hafan, with one of their first projects in 2016 winning them an engraved bronze apple to place on their commemorative Gift Tree at the hospice in recognition of reaching their ‘pay for a day goal’ of £11,000. Since then, they have raised over £30,000 for the charity. Past events have included the Race to the Stones challenge, exceeding their £5,000 goal, a fundraising ball in 2018 and taking part in Tŷ Hafan’s Christmas pantomime.

Stuart Price, Actuary and Partner at Quantum Advisory, said: “We have always been keen supporters of Tŷ Hafan, as they provide life-changing help and support for young people all over the country. Team Quantum had a blast in their Football Fives tournament, and we are very proud to have achieved our fundraising goal and be awarded ‘Best Tŷ Hafan Fundraisers’!”

Sorrel Mayo, Corporate Senior Fundraiser at Tŷ Hafan, said: “It’s always a pleasure working with the brilliant team at Quantum Advisory. During the time I have known them, despite a pandemic and many other challenges, Quantum has always shown huge support for the children and the families we care for. The incredible amount of funds they have raised has had, and continues to have, a direct impact on the lives of some of the most vulnerable in our communities and allows Tŷ Hafan to create lasting memories that many of our families cherish.

“The total funds raised by Quantum is a phenomenal £30,862. We are very lucky to have their continued support, and we can’t thank Stuart and the team at Quantum Advisory enough for everything they do for the children and families at Tŷ Hafan.”

Providing comfort and care to children and young people with life shortening conditions throughout Wales, Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities. They provide emotional and practical support to parents and siblings, helping to create special memories, offering support and respite not only at the hospice but in the homes of the families or in hospital, doing so completely free of charge.
