We are delighted to announce that Little Havens Hospice are our designated charity for 2017. We will be raising money in a number of events throughout the year.
Little Havens Children’s Hospice who are the only children’s hospice in Essex, opened in 1988 and designed specifically to provide the necessary care and support for children aged 0-19 from Essex and London. Little Havens take it further than simply caring for the children that need it so much as they also take pride in helping the families of the children that have been diagnosed with a life-limiting illness and provide end of life care, as well as respite breaks for up to 8 weeks of the year.
In order to carry out these truly life-changing services, Little Havens need to raise around £2.5million per year. This is due to receiving very limited government funding and not charging a penny for the care that they provide. So in order to keep their services free of charge and as effective as possible, Little Havens Hospice relies on donations from the community and businesses.
