A Barry jewellery maker’s beautiful Butterfly bracelets will net Gobaith am Barri a very grateful donation each time one is sold.
Generous Gemma Stauber, who has designed the item to feature the Suicide Centre’s Campaign symbol, is the latest local to support this much-needed cause.
The 17cm beautiful Sterling Silver butterfly bracelet is a beautiful addition to any stack.
It is made from 4mm sterling silver round beads hand threaded onto high quality elastic with a sterling silver butterfly charm.
The bracelet is priced £21 and comes gift wrapped in a beautiful Crafted Arts box – as does all Crafted Arts jewellery.
Gemma said: “I am more than happy to help Rachel and support the Gobaith am Barri Campaign for the much-needed Suicide Support Centre in our town. Making and selling these bracelets, which are really popular, is my way of making a contribution. Thank you to all those who have bought one.”
You could find the perfect present or treat yourself – and help a community cause too!
Rachel Degaetano who started the Gobaith Am Barri Campaign to set up a Suicide Support Centre in our town following the death of her beloved boy Chae said: “Thanks Gemma for helping us and supporting us. The bracelets are lush and so are you!”
Rachel, is now looking forward to the next big fundraiser before the grand opening of the Suicide Support Centre in January.
Do you fancy a quick dip…in the sea…in January? Then get your trunks on and join us for the New Years Day Swim. Please wade in, come and watch, donate, and/or get involved.
The annual swim at Barry Island has been re-branded the Ty Hafan New Year’s Day Swim, although the event is open to all.
Rachel added: “All are welcome to brace the New Year sea for Gobaith am Barri. The former organiser of the public wwim has ‘handed’ this event over to Ty Hafan – a brilliant and well-deserved Charity whom we all support, of course. We would just rather swim for suicide support this year, and as it’s not compulsory to only be able to swim on New Years Day for one cause only, I’m sure there’s enough room for both of us.”
Or you can make donation to Gobaith am Barri at any time through the official Charity Bank Account. The Sort Code is 30-90-89 and the Account Number is 37688168.
