havens hospices starts sprinkling festive cheer


25 October 2016

Havens Hospices are gearing up for their annual festive fundraiser, with even more seasonal twists this year!

Havens Hospices will hold their Run Santa Run event on Sunday 4th December at Wat Tyler Country Park in Basildon. As well as a 4.5k Santa Run there will also be a 2k Reindeer Run for children and families, a Santa’s Grotto, Choir, Snow Machine, Reindeer and Christmas characters. 

Havens Hospices, which incorporates Little Havens and Fair Havens, cares for children and adults with life-limiting conditions both at the hospices and in the community. We provide respite, symptom management and end of life care, completely free of charge for as long as is needed. 

Susie May, Events Fundraiser at Havens Hospices says,

“It may only be October but we’re already getting into the Christmas spirit and hope people will join us in spreading some festive cheer on 4
th December. Everyone who takes part in the Santa Run will be given a red and white Santa suit to run in and all of our Reindeer racers will get antlers and a flashing red nose.

“Each week Havens Hospices must raise £100,000 to provide respite, manage pain and give end of life care to children and adults with life-limiting conditions at our hospices and in the local community and this is only possible thanks to our supporters who join us at our events. Everyone who takes part and supports on the day will be ‘Making every day count’ to those we care for.”
