A Season of Giving: Outdoor Leisure's "Christmas Wish" Havens Hospices Fundraising Campaign

Giving is an essential part of the festive season and demonstrates Christmas' true meaning: goodwill. So, what better way to put into practice the meaning of Christmas than by donating to a charity?

...We couldn't think of one either! So here at Outdoor Leisure we have organised the "Christmas Wish" Havens Hospices Fundraising Campaign where we ask children and their families to visit us in-store to throw donations into our wishing well and make a Christmas wish!

Havens Hospices provide respite and end of life care for adults, children and their families both at home and in their two centres: Fair Havens Hospice and Little Havens Hospice. Little Havens has provided 15 years of child care and Fair Havens has celebrated its 30th year of adult support and nursing this year.

Fair Havens, located in Westcliff-on-Sea, is the only hospice in the vicinity that is wholly dedicated to caring for those with an illness that could shorten their life, such as cancer. Furthermore, Essex-based Havens Hospices provide specialist care and support to those in need for free 'making every day count' for those with life-limiting illnesses, and their families.

We have balloons and stickers for all donators and are hoping to raise a significant fund that will allow Havens Hospices to continue their wonderful work.

Remember Christmas' true meaning this year and give in-store or at
