15 Aug Galliard Homes, helps raise £13,000 for Haven House Hospice’s
A team from London’s leading property developer, Galliard Homes, helped to prepare and host Haven House Hospice’s spectacular 15th Birthday Summer Party.
The event which took place on the 1st July 2018 was open to the local community and was their biggest event to date raising £13,000 for the hospice and the families it supports. As part of their Responsible Business 2020 Strategy, Galliard Homes are Haven House’s primary sponsor and their employees have donated over 200 hours of their time and raised over £26,000 for the hospice this year alone.
The money raised from this event is essential to the running of the hospice, which works to give the best possible life to every baby, child and young person with life-limiting or life-threatening conditions. Funds are not only essential for providing the 24-hour care for the children, the maintenance of the medical equipment and for employing and medically training the staff, but also allows for excursions for the children which their parents may be unequipped to take them on, such as visiting museums and play centres.
Haven House also provides day and night stays either in the hospice itself or in the fully equipped family flat. The facility also offers support to parents and siblings by providing counselling groups, play sessions and support groups. The Hardship Fund is also administered by the Hospice and covers emergency travel, medical equipment, funeral costs and bereavement counselling for the families. Full 24-hour care costs the facility £5,666 per day and this is what much of Galliard Homes’ fundraising goes towards.
