About

The Birch Thompson Memorial Fund Gelliwig, our residential Centre in Porthmadog , is a tribute to Graham Birch and John Thompson, teachers at Colton Hills School who died prematurely in 1980. The charity, registered in 1981, was formed to honour their contribution to the lives of young people at Colton Hills School in particular and Wolverhampton generally.

Gelliwig, can accommodate thirty people using a mixture of bunk beds and single divans. There are beds for wheelchair users and a hoist and shower chair as an integrated approach to all young people was the initial ethos.

The small, not for profit, local charity is managed by volunteer trustees and has a part-time paid warden living near to Gelliwig. The cost to user groups has always been kept to a minimum and is subsidised by fund-raising of which our Annual event with the Joe Loss Orchestra has been a successful example.
