To make the world a better and safer place for everyone, we all need to play our part in whatever way we can. Maybe that’s through volunteering your time or skills for a cause you care about, or perhaps it’s something as simple as being kind to strangers you meet in your day-to-day life. But you can also help make a difference by donating what you can to charity too.
You might be thinking, why donate to charity? While we like to believe we can make a difference on our own, sometimes we can do more together. The way charities are structured lets them use money raised to directly help people who need it on a larger scale than we can as individuals.
And if you have any concerns about how money you donate is used, we are open and honest and you can find a link below to show what we do with your donations. You can always look at our latest annual report to get reassurance that donations made to the charity are actively helping their beneficiaries.

“I gained so much confidence through the support I received. I couldn’t be more grateful for everything you have done for me and my son.”
Ceri completed her first half marathon in support of Cyfannol! She was able to beat her predicted time while still smiling the entire way, raising £646.25 thanks to her dedication and hard work.
“I’ve worked at Cyfannol for almost two years, so I’ve seen first-hand the amazing work the staff and volunteers do every day. I started running in 2020 to help get out of the house during covid and found it very refreshing for my mental health. I’ve been regularly running 10km runs (with everyone’s favourite dog, Dug), but I’ve never gotten near a half marathon, so this is a big push for me.”
After becoming concerned about people who faced homelessness, Noah was determined to make a difference and so his ‘Make Someone Smile’ campaign was born. Noah has now been fundraising for various causes for more than 6 years.
“All it takes is one small gesture to make someone smile. It doesn’t have to be a massive thing to show you care. I will continue trying to make a difference. I am amazed at how much support I have always received. I believe it’s because everyone really wants to warm someone else’s heart. Happy Easter everyone!”
Will jumped on the opportunity to run for us in the Cardiff Half Marathon, crushing his target time and raising £746.25 in the process!
“Domestic violence is a problem, and no one should have to go through it. Working alongside Cyfannol Women’s Aid has shown me the amazing work they do for women and families. Hearing that I had the opportunity to help by doing the Half Marathon was an opportunity I couldn’t say no to. I have seen first-hand the lengths, efforts and support the teams provide to those in need.”
In celebration for her 27th birthday, Aimee took on the month of May by embarking in a cycling challenge. She persevered, despite hurting her back after falling down the stairs, and raised £237.50!
“I am a victim of domestic abuse and regret not learning about organisations like Cyfannol Women’s Aid when I was younger. That’s why I planned this challenge to fundraise. I’m hoping that by organising this challenge, I can help the organisation gain more awareness, show people they’re not alone, and raise money to support them.”
“I never envisaged needing to visit Women’s Aid in my lifetime, but when one day my world fell apart and my doctor referred me here for support, it was the most supportive place I’ve ever been.”
