Its official, Team Haven has had the biggest and most successful Kiltwalk year to date!
With a total of 189 walkers and representation at all four Kiltwalks (Glasgow, Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh), we are delighted to announce that more than £60,000 has been raised so far by our dedicated walkers and supporters for The Haven. What’s even more exciting is that this number is set to rise as we continue to receive sponsorship monies over the coming weeks!
We have recently launched a new campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of legacies to the work of
This is the first campaign of its kind from us and will focus on why legacy giving can make such a huge difference to charities like The Haven. A legacy is a gift that you can leave in your Will. After you have taken care of your family and loved ones, you may wish to leave a gift in your Will to a charity that holds a special place in your heart and create a legacy that will support future generations.
We have been the grateful recipients of a charity scheme run by Scotland’s Garden Scheme, Open Gardens of Scotland.
For the past few years, local Braehead man Alan Brash and his partner Margaret have taken part in this scheme by opening up their garden to the public and choosing to donate all proceeds to The Haven. This year the couple raised an incredible £790.32 which will go directly to supporting families affected by life limiting illness in the local Clydesdale community.
As we recently announced, we are expanding our successful Children, Young People and Families Service to our Forth centre, something we are delighted about. In order for the service to be fully established, we are recruiting volunteers aged 16 to 25 to come on board as peer support volunteers for the children and young people who access the service.
This September we are aiming to take our biggest team ever to the Edinburgh Kiltwalk to raise vital funds in order to sustain
our support and services across our three centres.
People from all over Lanarkshire will be walking in aid of The Haven at one of Scotland’s highest profile charity events, the Kiltwalk, in Edinburgh which is taking place on Sunday 15th September.
