More about Llanelli Hospice
Ty Bryngwyn Hospice, founded in January 1986, is situated in the grounds of Prince Philip Hospital, Llanelli and is a Centre of Excellence for palliative care services in Carmarthenshire. It provides in-patient palliative care and day treatment services and acts as a base for the Macmillan Nurses, the Bereavement Service and therapies. The Hospice at Home scheme is also centred here as is the equipment stores for home aids. The Day Care Centre offers physical, psychological, spiritual and social support.
The Specialist Care In-Patient Unit was officially opened during September 2003. The unit comprises of six single individual rooms with en suite facilities.
The aims of the Hospice are to:
• enrich the person's quality of life
• promote their independence
• offer opportunities to empower the person to make their own personal choices within a safe therapeutic environment
• provide education, information, support and advice for both patients and families
• offer a range of individual or group activities which can take place at either Ty Bryngwyn or within the community
Ty Bryngwyn Hospice benefits from the generosity of donations, the sterling work of a hard-working fund-raising committee and vast public support.
The reputation of skilled palliative care for those with life-threatening conditions has spread far beyond the boundaries of Carmarthenshire which it serves and is a proven and valuable asset to the Health Service.
The website has been set up to raise awareness of the hospice, whilst encouraging donations. Donating online is a great way to raise money allowing donations from friends and family where ever they are. The Ty Bryngwyn Hospice Appeal Fund, Virgin Money Giving site offers the facility for donors to run their own fundraising campaigns or simply make a donation. The option is also available for claiming gift aid, raising a further £25.00 for every £100.00 donated.
Festival of Light 2017
St Elli Centre manager Andrew Stephens said: The event is organised each year by the hard working volunteers who work tirelessly throughout the year who run the Festival of Light Service and many other fundraise activities.
Last night we were once again faced with the possibility of no PA system after it was recently stolen.
We are extremely grateful to Fone Fix and Gadgets in Llanelli market who stepped in with very little notice to provide equipment for the Monday night service.
The service means so much to so many people who have used the Ty Bryngwyn Hospice as either a patient or that of a loved one.
The focal point of the event is the lighting of the Hospice Lantern and Candle and this year we were very grateful that local charity fundraising champion Mr Denys Jenkins BEM agreed to do the honour.
We are grateful to Ysgol Gymraeg Brynsierfel for taking part.
When the centre’s lights are switched off the lantern and candles are lit up with the rendition of Cor Meibion Llanelli singing You’ll Never Walk Alone, which includes the fitting line of “Don’t be afraid of the dark” as the congregation sit and stand together in darkness.
Cor Curiad and the audience join in together, then some of the St Elli Centre Christmas Lights came on with the centrepiece under the glass Pyramid.

Our thanks also to the Salvation Army Band for their accompaniment to the singing.
Funds donated on the day were £1100.00
