Last year we delivered over 200 volunteering days to a wide range of companies. Choose from our selection of opportunities and team building challenges below:

I can speak for everyone that took part in saying that we had a really enjoyable day and were very grateful of the welcome we received.

Volunteer in our gardens

Spend a day with your team working hard in our beautiful grounds. With four acres of gardens to maintain, we rely on corporate volunteers to help us out so that our children and families can enjoy the grounds all year round. Our garden days run from April to October and work perfectly for a group of ten. 

If your company chooses Haven House as their Charity of the Year you will be offered at least one day in our gardens as part of your partnership. We can also host larger groups for partners who run volunteering weeks or for those looking for a one-off team building day we request a donation of £50 per person to cover arranging the day, supervision and a tasty lunch. Volunteering in our gardens also ensures you get the opportunity to look around the hospice after lunch.

Volunteer in our shops

Our boutique style charity shops can be found in Chingford, Crouch End, Epping, Leytonstone, Loughton and Romford. Small teams can take over our shops for the day and compete to drive up profit by undertaking practical tasks such as steaming and pricing clothes, serving customers and planning window displays. 

Turn this volunteering opportunity into a 'Store Wars Challenge Day' and multiple teams can compete against one another to see who can raise the most money in one day. The more creative you are, the more you will raise. You can read about how Centor raised over £3,500 with sixteen volunteers in four of our shops in one day.

Host a Hustle Day

Take on this 'Apprentice' style challenge and help us secure sponsors, raffle and auction prizes, and even donations for the hospice in this one-day team challenge.

The Haven House Hustle day is perfect for interns and graduates or for using as a team-building or development opportunity. It can take place on a morning/afternoon of your choice, in the comfort of your own office or at the hospice where we can squeeze in a tour of our facilities.


We also need help all year round with events like our Summer Festival, Pumpkin Fest and Winter Wonderland. Get in touch to find out more:
