12 Days of Christmas

Supporting our hospice care at Christmas

As people celebrate Christmas with their family or friends, our hospices will still be open to provide 24 hour care to those who need us most. 

In the lead up to Christmas we are asking the community of Essex and London to help us raise £24,000 - as that's the cost of providing care at both our hospices, Little Havens and Fair Havens, on Christmas and Boxing Day. 

If you are taking part in festive fundraising in aid of Havens Hospices please contact us as we would like to hear about it and support you in any way we can.

Take a look below at our 12 fundraising ideas perfect to bring festive fun to your workplace, school or home.
