To celebrate National Volunteers Week (1-7 June) all three of our Haven centres hosted special celebrations for our centre volunteers and Haven Helpers to thank them for all they do for The Haven.
Our Blantyre centre hosted a Strawberry Tea and our Wishaw and Forth centres hosted an Afternoon Tea.
We recently marked UK Dementia Awareness Week in our Forth centre by holding a week of activities for families affected by Dementia in the local Clydesdale community.
We recently held our annual Spring Fayre at The Haven centre in Forth to welcome members of the local Clydesdale community in to the centre.
We are incredibly proud and honored to be one of the first local charities to benefit from the innovative pilot scheme ‘Recycle and Reward’ which is running in Blantyre’s Family Shopper store.
The scheme, which offers customers money back for recycling empty bottles and cans, has so far generated a massive £180 for The Haven. This is part of a trial that Family Shopper owner, Mo Razzaq, has set up in concern Scottish Government’s Deposit Return Scheme, which aims to encourage people to recycle more and limit the amount of used drinks containers going to landfill. This is expected to be launched nationally late 2020.
We are so excited to share with you that we are set for a record breaking Kiltwalk fundraising year.
We are delighted to announce that the Glasgow Kiltwalk 2019 is our biggest and most successful walk to date with members of Team Haven walking the miles for the charity and raising over £39,000 so far with sponsorship still coming in.
