Helping Haven the Homie way
We’re delighted to announce Breast Cancer Haven as our Charity of the year for 2019. As part of this, we’re pledging to raise a minimum of £5,000. So, that means that over the next 12 months we’ll be tackling a range of different activities and challenges – from classic bake sales (who doesn’t like cake!) to chucking Homies out of planes (with parachutes mind!) in order to meet our target.
We’ve chosen Haven because of the undeniable impact the charity has on people whose lives have been affected in some way by breast cancer. Haven exists to improve people’s quality of life, whether that’s through emotional, practical or physical support. This can be anything from a one-to-one session with a healthcare professional, to counselling, acupuncture, nutritional therapy, massage and monetary advice. Step-by-step, they build back up the confidence, strength and individuality that cancer tries to take from people.
Last year, Breast Cancer Haven supported 2,941 people nationally, through 17,436 individual appointments– 4,075 of which were in Yorkshire. The charity receives no government funding, so we want to do our bit to try and secure these crucial services for the future.
