We are delighted to announce that Havens Hospices is our chosen Charity of the Year! Throughout 2019, we will be getting involved in lots of fun projects to raise funds for this worthy local charity.
About Havens Hospices
Havens Hospices is an important charity to the team and to the local area. The mantra of Havens Hospices (and Fair Havens Hospice, Little Havens Hospice and The J’s) is ‘making every day count’ for those with life-limiting illnesses and their families. This is clear through their dedication to caring for patients and their loved ones.
We have chosen Havens Hospices as our charity of the year because we feel it’s important to raise awareness for the work that they do. As a registered charity, they receive limited government funding and therefore rely on volunteers and donations to keep running.
The current Fair Havens site is only 8 minutes away from us in Chalkwell Avenue, so we are especially passionate about supporting a cause that’s close to us. In fact, we have been appointed to manage the sale of this very building as they prepare to move to a new purpose-built adult hospice which is being built in Prittlewell.
Our fundraising activities
Ayers & Cruiks have formed a ‘Havens Hospice Committee’ along with BTMK to help raise funds – not only Havens Hospices overall – but to go towards the development of this new Fair Havens site. We are taking part in a number of events, including our team ‘stepping up’ in May to complete the 2,480,000 steps challenge and Play on the pitch where local businesses play against Barclays. You can support our efforts by donating to our JustGiving page here.
We also regularly hold coffee mornings here at Ayers & Cruiks to raise money for Havens Hospices, encouraging the local community to join us for a slice of cake and a morning of fundraising!
Keep up to date with our charity fundraisers
As the year continues, we will be running many more events to raise money, so be sure to follow us on our Facebook and Twitter pages for information on upcoming charity events and for updates on our charity work throughout the year.
