Facing the future together with hope



The Haven encourage you to leave your legacy

We have recently launched a new campaign which aims to increase awareness of the importance of legacies to the work of

The Haven legacies campaign

The Haven.

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.
