Greenway Business Centre in Harlow is always looking to add more to our local community. Our latest charity fun day raised more than £1,000 for Haven House Children’s Hospice.

A charity first

The fun day on 27 July was the biggest charity event ever staged by Greenway Business Centre.  Together with Haven House, the centre management team put on a show with a huge number of different activities, including a BBQ, a raffle, a marquee, a photo booth, face painting and games like guess the balloons and splat the rat. Customers of Greenway were incredibly generous and helped throughout the day, as well as donating raffle prizes.

Lorraine Lee, Centre Manager at Greenway Business Centre, said: ‘Having such a big charity event at Greenway Business Centre was a first for us, but judging by the fantastic response and support we received from staff and especially our customers, it may well become an annual event. Raising over £1,000 for such a worthy cause as Haven House Children’s Hospice is a great result and makes all the hard work well worth it. I would like to send out a big thank you to everyone who donated and got involved on the day.’

A great cause

Haven House Children’s Hospice was created in the early 1990s by Sue Irwin, a registered nurse and health visitor, who with friends and colleagues founded the charity to provide care to life-limited children and their families at no cost to them.

To date, the charity has helped more than 900 families, looking after children and young people from birth to 19 years old.  Their aim by 2020 is to be helping 500 families a year across respite, end-of-life and community services. 

It’s lovely to see how quickly people got stuck in and helped organise the event, including the community, staff and customers. We hope that this becomes an annual event and are excited for the next time we work together to provide fundraising for such a great cause.
