Christmas at Havens Hospices

Help us make treasured memories for our families this Christmas

With your help we can ensure we're there for everyone who needs us this Christmas and help families make more of the time they have together. 

Imagine being told there is no cure for you or your child’s illness and this Christmas might be the last opportunity to spend precious time together as a family during the festive season.

This is a reality for some of the families we care for.

Our hospices never close their doors. Our specialist care doesn’t stop during the festive season so this Christmas we need your help.

This year it will cost £50,519 to provide one week of care at Fair Havens or Little Havens over Christmas.

You can make a donation online here. Or if you are taking part in festive fundraising in aid of Havens Hospices please contact us as we would love to hear about it and support you in any way we can.

How your fundraising makes a difference

Every pound you donate or raise for Havens Hospices will help nurses like Sophie provide specialist palliative care to families at our hospices, or in the community.

Sophie said, “We may visit to adjust pain relief or give personal care so the patient can be comfortable for the evening, enjoying the simple pleasure of a cup of tea and a mince pie. For our younger patients, often the respite gives parents a break, perhaps go and see their other children in their school play – those special moments you don’t want to miss.

And, of course, we will be there to support a person’s last hours, last moments. Ensuring they’re free from pain, holding their hand, playing their favourite Christmas Carol – there is always something we can do to create a positive, lasting memory of the toughest time of their lives.”
