Four members of the Conveyancing Association (CA) Secretariat at Convey 365 – Spencer Cawley, Joel Grant, Morgan Paley and Will Smith – will be aiming to summit the Welsh Three Peaks on the 30th June and, CA Operations Director, Lloyd Davies, will undertake the 5in55 Challenge from the 4th-7th July, summiting five of the highest mountains in the UK in just 55 hours.
The real challenge for the CA is to help raise over £25k for the Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice.
Tŷ Hafan is one of the UK’s leading paediatric palliative care charities and provides care for terminally ill children and their families. The hospice needs to raise over £3 million a year from private funding to survive. Tŷ Hafan aims to do everything in its power to make sure that a short life is a full life, as well as caring for the families involved, it aims to create special memories that last a lifetime.
With Tŷ Hafan in mind, the CA Secretariat will attempt to climb the three Welsh peaks of Mount Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Penyfan all within 15 hours. They will join travellers from all around the world to walk a distance of 20.35 miles.
Between the 4th-7th July, CA Operations Director and Chairman of the Conveyancing Foundation, Lloyd Davies, will join a group of Tŷ Hafan Dad’s, supported by uncles, brothers and staff to climb the five highest mountains in the UK in 55 hours. They will be tackling Ben Nevis in Scotland, Scafell Pike in England, and Snowdon, Cadair Idris and Penyfan in Wales.
So far the fundraising which has been achieved this year, in conjunction with the Conveyancing Foundation, Convey Law and Monmouth Rugby Football Club, as well as the local schools and youth clubs involved in the Monmouth Snowdogs Challenge, is just over £23k for Tŷ Hafan.

The Foundation recently received praise for its charitable work and ingenuity from HRH Prince Charles earlier this year as the prince is the Patron for the Ty Hafan Children’s Hospice.
Lloyd Davies, Chairman of the Conveyancing Foundation and Operations Director at the CA, commented:
“We are looking to raise awareness of how conveyancers can raise considerable funds for their chosen charities while engaging with their local communities. The Conveyancing Foundation Free Legal Fee Competition has allowed Convey Law clients to raise over £300k for the Tŷ Hafan Children’s Hospice over the last 10 years.
“Conveyancers who use the competition can choose the charity that they wish to support. We are a zero profit organisation and we are fully committed to helping conveyancers ‘Convey for Charity’. I would like to say a massive thank you to our sponsors at Groundsure, Conveyancing Data Services and Convey Law for helping to support our trekking challenges this year. Thank you all for your generous donations and support.”
The Conveyancing Charity Foundation has been established as a not-for-profit charitable organisation to help conveyancers raise money for their chosen charities, easily and effectively.
The Free Legal Fee Charity Competition has raised over £5300k over the course of the last 10 years and provides conveyancers with the opportunity to raise funds for their chosen charities by establishing a simple donation collection process at the end of each property transaction.
