On Saturday 1st April, S. Stibbards & Sons visited Little Havens Hospice to join Krafty Kids, the hospice’s sibling support group in order to host an Easter Egg Hunt.
This year, S. Stibbards & Sons are celebrating 150 years and five generations of the Stibbards family running the business. As part of their celebrations they are holding a number of events that not only commemorate this milestone, but also reflect relationships in the community that the firm have built over the 150 years.
Over the years they have developed their relationship with Havens Hospices, particularly with Little Havens Hospice; so as part of their 150 year celebrations Stibbards current and fifth generation Director Martin Stibbards, wanted to hold an event for the children and families who are supported by the hospice to put on an Easter Egg Hunt in the hospice’s gardens for the patients and their brothers and sisters who attend Krafty Kids.
Martin Stibbards, Managing Director of S. Stibbards & Sons said,
“We are celebrating 150 years of helping families in the South Essex area to celebrate loved ones’ lives and so it seemed fitting to also reflect upon the key partnerships we have in the local community; Little Havens Hospice is incredibly close to not just my heart, but everyone at Stibbards and there is a depth of feeling for everyone who works or uses Little Havens that is that of family.
We provide a service that allows families to say goodbye at the end of their child, grandchild and sibling’s journey, but Little Havens Hospice supports both the patient and the family during, at the end and after the journey. They provide vital pre and post-bereavement services, including Krafty Kids which is a sibling support group; allowing children to create supportive friendships with others who may be experiencing similar journeys. We very much enjoyed hosting an Easter Egg Hunt for the Krafty Kids on Saturday and hope that we helped in some way to ‘Making every day count’ for them all”
