Haven House hospice aims to provide the highest quality holistic and palliative care services for babies, children and young people with life-limiting conditions (aged from birth to 19 years), along with their families, who live in the charity’s local communities across eleven London boroughs, West Essex and East Hertfordshire.
CWN is working in partnership with Haven House over a two year period (2018-2019), aiming to contribute in a meaningful way towards the charity’s ‘Vision 2020’ initiative. This project aims to support 500 children and their families per annum at critical times of need through core respite, end-of-life and community service activities, teenage cancer and mothers and babies groups, by 2020.
There are a number of ways CWN members can support Haven House.
You can sponsor a fellow CWN member as we complete a 10K run for Haven House.
We are running the British 10k on Sunday 15th July on behalf of the City Women Network, to raise money for Haven House Children's Hospice.This year’s runners are Sandy Lucas (CWN President Emeritus), Barbara Cremer (CWN Treasurer), Isabella Reggio (past CWN Treasurer), Sarah Burgess (past CWN board member), Ian Burgess; and Anne-Marie Balfe (CWN External Relations Chair).
