One way of supporting Haven House and families like Siennas is to consider asking your friends, family and colleagues for donations instead of gifts when celebrating your special occasion. You could be celebrating a birthday, anniversary or wedding so please make 'Celebrate and Donate'  part of your special day and help us make a real difference to the families we support.

This is perfect for:

  • Birthdays - including milestone celebrations
  • Wedding anniversaries
  • Naming ceremonies or Christenings
  • Baby showers
  • Faith festivals
  • Graduation
  • Retirement
  • Weddings

Harry & Nicola

When planning their wedding, Harry & Nicola decided to ask family and friends to consider giving a donation to charity, rather than buying them a gift. They came along to Haven House, to see first-hand the support we give to seriously ill children and their families. Following their visit they kindly chose us to be the beneficiary of their special day. 


On our wedding day – the happiest of days – we wanted to do something that helped bring happiness and comfort to others (and we already had enough glassware and kitchen appliances! ) The children and families at Haven House, a local charity to us, seemed like the perfect fit, and we are honoured to remain involved at Haven House

We can:

  • Provide you with balloons & banners, collection buckets or boxes for your celebration
  • Help you to set up a personal online giving page on our website for a simple and easy way for your friends, family and colleagues to add a personal message with their donation
  • Send Haven House donation envelopes for your event in addition to information about the charity and the difference their money could make.

Sue who celebrated her 70th birthday said

The best birthday present I received were the kind donations given to Haven House by my friends and family to help support life-limited children and their families.

Through your special celebration if appropriate, you can also aim to Pay for a Day of care at Haven House.

If you would like to make a donation for a friend, relative or colleague's celebration we can send you a postcard so you can let them know about your kind donation. These cards come in denominations of £5, £10, £25 and £60 and there is space on the back to write a personal message.
