As part of our Charity of the Year project, Pafra Adhesives are supporting Little Havens Hospice based in Rayleigh, Essex. Little Havens provide care to children and teenagers diagnosed with complex and/or incurable conditions, as well as offering support to the patient’s families.
To get our fundraising off to the best start we arranged two Christmas themed events for December 2020.
Every year hundreds of adults and children come together to raise money for their free hospice care by partaking in Havens’ “Run Santa Run” event. This year things have been different, and Havens Hospices made the decision to make their event a virtual Festive 5K instead.
With an increase in the demand for their care increasing and with income falling due to restrictions on public gatherings, Pafra couldn’t resist the opportunity to join in and help continue “making every day count” for Little Havens.
Over the weekend of 12th and 13th December Team Pafra grabbed their festive outfits. Spurred on by the generous donations we were receiving we ran, cycled, and walked, clocking up a huge 123km between us.
This is a fantastic effort and I’m sure you will agree that the costumes were remarkable!
Wear Something Festive Day
On Thursday 17th December 2020 we held a Wear Something Festive day, and the team came out in force to celebrate. There was an array of Christmas jumpers, lots of festive headwear, Miss Santa and her elf, and festive cheer to boot!
By holding these events Pafra have raised a massive £1635.00, and counting, for Havens Hospices. We are so proud of our team for coming together to fundraise at such a critical time of year. To date, the total raised by all participants of Havens' Festive 5K event is over £17,500 which is an amazing achievement. Their free care is only possible because of the funds raised from events like this.
Pafra Adhesives would like to say a special thank you to everybody who donated towards these events. You have helped towards the care provided to families over the Christmas period and we are so grateful to you all.
We have a schedule of fundraising events planned for 2021. Be sure to check back here for future updates!
