Fundraise your way

Our hospice care can only exist because of the support and generosity from the community.

We don’t charge a penny for our care – and that’s only possible because of people like you. No matter how much you donate or raise, every pound truly is ‘Making every day count.’ We need to raise more than £85,000 each week to care for those who need us.

Whether you're an individual, group, business or club we are here to support you with your fundraising.

How your fundraising makes a difference.

Every pound you raise for Havens Hospices will help us continue caring for families like Evie's.

11-year-old Evie has CDKL5, a rare genetic condition. Along with her family Evie has been coming to Little Havens for respite breaks since 2016. 

Evie's Mum, Sarah, said “Coming to Little Havens is like having a comfort blanket. We feel safe, we can be ourselves and you don't have to worry.”

Together, we're 'Making every day count'.

£20 could pay for a family to have a meal at Little Havens, giving them a night off cooking and the washing up!

£42 could pay for an hour and a half of specialist nursing care for a patient in their own home at the end of their life.

£300 could pay for twenty sessions of counselling to relatives feeling overwhelmed by their grief

£900 could pay for 50 hours of care at Fair Havens, providing holistic care to adults with incurable conditions.

Since I’ve been here, it’s totally different to what I expected. Death does happen, but there’s so much more to this type of care. Mark
