Kenton nails it for charity!
Posted on 25 October 2012
Cardiff Devils sponsor, Imagineer, has been busy supporting local charity Ty Hafan.
The photography and image company, who sponsor Cardiff Devils defenceman Kenton Smith and also power Devils TV, recently helped set up a nail bar for the teenage girls (and mums) who stay at Ty Hafan.
Jason Digby of Imagineer said, "This came about when I saw a message from Frank Ady of Ty Hafan on Twitter, asking for help setting up a nail bar."
After discussing the project with Ty Hafan, Imagineer helped source the equipment for a fully stocked nail bar for the girls, providing nail polish, a stand, brushes, buffers & remover pads.
Jason added, “I now know more than I ever thought I would about nail art!"
Angela Tucker, the therapist at Ty Hafan who helped set up the nail bar, explained that the new mobile nail bar means that many more girls can now have treats and pamper sessions. The nail bar is the right height for girls that are in bed as well as those in wheelchairs.
Angela said, “It'll make a real difference to our girls!"
Once Kenton heard about this project he was keen to visit the hospice himself. Jason & Kenton were given a tour of the hospice and shown the new developments at the site.
Ty Hafan offers specialist palliative care tailored to the needs of life-limited children, young people and their families, and is free of charge to those in Wales who needs it.
Kenton said "It was great to see the work being done at Ty Hafan, myself & the team will definitely help out in any way we can.”
