Community engagement

We recognise that we play an important role in our local community as a Funeral Director in Llandudno, Conwy and Colwyn Bay. We aim to make the communities in which we operate better places and like to get involved with our local community where we can. We use our skills, and where possible the Company’s resources, to help create a mutual benefit.

Recent examples of these can be found by clicking the links below but include sponsoring two local junior football team kits, donating to a defibrillator in Llanrhos and donating plaques to local charities for their remembrance trees. We also run a monthly coffee morning for anyone that has been bereaved.

Tom Owen and Son are proud to have signed up to the Breastfeeding Welcome scheme.

In September 2022, Tom Owen and Son took part in a charity quiz night to raise funds for St David's Hospice. At Rydal School, alongside many other local teams, a total of £15,002 was raised.

We have taken part in the Christmas Tree Festival at St John's Methodist Church in Llandudno since December 2021 to raise funds for St David's Hospice.

During June 2023, both Tristan and Kelly Owen took part in a Dragon's Lair challenge at Ysgol Bryn Elian to raise funds for Ty Gobaith Children's Hospice. This took the form of a Dragon's Den style pitch by Year 10 pupils, as part of their Welsh Bacc, to local businesses who gave feedback on the various fundraising ideas. It was great to attend the Enterprise Fair and see the results of the challenge.
