Leyton Orient midfielder Dean Cox dropped by for a visit last week and showed his support for our exciting Pumpkin Plod.

The annual family fundraiser takes place on Sunday 25 October with adults and children encouraged to wear orange and dress up as pumpkins for our sponsored 2k, 5k and 10k walks, which start at The White House, High Road, Woodford Green.

Last Friday Leyton Orient midfielder Dean Cox, Howard Gould, Liaison Officer at Leyton Orient Trust and the club’s mascot, Theo, visited our Holistic Care Centre.  

Leyton Orient has supported us for several years and Theo will be at the Pumpkin Plod on Sunday. 

Speaking of his visit to Haven House, Leyton Orient midfielder Dean Cox said: “I’ve been coming here for more than six years and it’s great for the club to show our support to the kids and their families.

"We help with fundraising as much as we can through match day collections and other events.

"Haven House is very close to Leyton Orient’s hearts.”

Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of Haven House, added: “Leyton Orient have been strong supporters of Haven House for many years and it’s great to have them backing the Pumpkin Plod.

“We really value the club’s time and commitment to local life-limited children and their families.

“Dean has visited the hospice several times before and we are always impressed with his enthusiasm and dedication.”
