Here at Gates Ford, we’re keen to engage with the local community – as an established business, we feel it’s important to offer our support wherever we can. As such, we’re delighted to be a part of the Haven House 100 Club, a community of like-minded organisations who work together to inspire and support one another while raising money for Haven House Children’s Hospice.
Based in Woodford, Essex, Haven House was founded in the 1990's and offers vital support to children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions and their families. Play activities, short stays, and a range of therapies are all available, ensuring the whole family can enjoy quality time together in a safe environment.
Fundraising for Haven House
To date, the hospice has helped over 900 families but, of course, it relies on support from the local community to continue with its mission. We at Gates Ford have pledged to raise £1,000 throughout 2019, contributing to the great work the organisation carries out. The teams at our Woodford and Enfield branches will be engaging in a selection of fundraising activities to help reach our £1,000 goal, from sponsored challenges to bake sales, and we’ll keep you updated as events and fundraisers are confirmed.
As a charity based in Woodford, the location of our first premises back in the 1920s, Haven House is a cause that’s close to our hearts, and we’re delighted to be offering our support through our involvement in the 100 Club.
You’re welcome to ask us about our events when you pop into your local showroom too, or if you’d like to make a donation, simply ask us how.
Other charitable ventures
Haven House Children’s Hospice is just one of the local causes that we support. Throughout the year, we will be attending a number of other charitable events – such as the Great Dunmow Soapbox Race and St Albans Half Marathon – to raise money for deserving organisations. We are also pleased to sponsor a selection of events close to our dealerships. Our staff are passionate about helping the local community, and as a reputable business in Essex, Hertfordshire and Middlesex, we see it as our responsibility to give something back.
