Havens Hospices is relying on the
good will of Essex businesses this Christmas to help raise £15,000 for the
seriously ill children and adults we care for.
On Thursday 7th
December, Havens Hospices begins two weeks of festive fundraising with
businesses and companies from across Essex. In 2016, corporate Supporters
helped to raise over £13,000 during our ‘12 Days of Christmas’
challenge, but we are hoping to exceed that this year.
Havens Hospices Corporate
Fundraiser, Lydia Plews said,
“12 Days of Christmas was such a successful
fundraiser last year that we couldn’t wait to do it again. From mince pie bake
offs, Christmas jumper days, Santa car washes, or donations in place of
Christmas cards and more, we’re really looking forward to two weeks packed full
of festive fundraising.”
Raising money for Havens Hospices
’12 Days of Christmas’ can take place on any day between Thursday 7th
and Friday 22nd December, or with a fundraising activity for each
“A bit of fundraising,
especially in the lead up to Christmas, is fantastic for engaging and
motivating staff in a fun way. The adults, young adults and children we care
for at Havens Hospices have an illness which could shorten their life so it’s
important that we make Christmas time as special for them as we possibly can,
but we can’t do it alone. I hope lots of businesses across Essex will help us
to be there for those who need us most this Christmas.”
Havens Hospices offers short
breaks, manages pain and cares for children and adults at the end of their
lives. The hospice care our charity provides can only exist because of the
support and generosity of the community.
