John Barrowman surprised children and guests at the 10th anniversary celebrations of Ty Hafan Childrenâ€™s Hospice, in Sully, south Wales today, as the Torchwood and Doctor Who star took a break from panto.
Barrowman has strong ties to the hospice, which has provided care and support for almost 400 life-limited children, youngsters and their families since opening 11 years ago. While taking a walk with his partner Barrowman discovered Ty Hafan Childrenâ€™s Hospice and has since raised Â£9,000 for the wonderful work done at the hospice, with more on its way thanks to generous audiences watching John Barrowman as Robin Hood in panto.
â€œIâ€™m really proud to say that I live in Wales because the people here are so generous. We have bought a house here in Sully and love it here.
â€œWe hope to be in Wales for a long time. My partnerâ€™s family are from south Wales and used to have land on the Gower.â€
