Law firm raises £11,000 for Havens Hospices

Law firm raises £11k for Essex hospice care and supports local Will writing scheme

Taylor Haldane Barlex has raised £11,000 for Havens Hospices over the past twelve months as one of its Charities of the Year.

The law firm has eight offices including local branches in Shoeburyness and Benfleet. Staff raised the money through a series of exciting events including an Easter themed ‘bake off’, a giant Easter egg raffle, sweepstakes on sporting events, a quiz night and a ball. They finished the year with some fun, festive fundraising by holding a Christmas jumper day and a raffle for a hamper.

The money raised will help Havens Hospices – which includes Fair Havens, The J’s and Little Havens – to provide palliative nursing and supportive care to adults, young people and children living with complex or incurable conditions across Essex.

The fundraising was led by Associate Solicitor Carly Dartnell from the Shoeburyness office. She explained, “I have seen first-hand the incredible work that Havens Hospices does in helping both individuals and their families during emotional and difficult times. It has been a pleasure for Taylor Haldane Barlex Solicitors to raise must needed funds for such an amazing cause.”

The Shoeburyness office is continuing its support for Havens Hospices in 2020 by taking part in the charity’s Will Writing scheme.

Carly will be kindly giving her time and expertise for free to help people write their Will in return for a suggested donation to Havens Hospices of only £90 for an individual Will or £150 for a pair of mirror Wills.

To take up this offer, contact Carly to book an appointment quoting ‘Havens Hospices Wills’ by emailing cdartnell@thblegal.com or calling 01702 298282.

Emma Hamilton, Event Fundraiser at Havens Hospices, said, “Many people put off making their Will but it is easy to do and you will feel happier knowing that your loved ones and any good causes that you support – like Havens Hospices – will be taken care of in the future. We are delighted that Carly has agreed to use her Will writing experience to help with our campaign and grateful to Taylor Haldane Barlex for raising so much money for us this year and continuing to support Havens Hospices in 2020.”
