The Partners As we look towards our future and the opportunities and challenges that Haven House Children's Hospice will face, we know that we need help. We invite you to join our long-term vision and invest, lead and give as a member of The Partners. In 2017/18, Haven House received just 19% statutory funding, despite providing nearly 20,000 hours of care. We reached 367 children, and their families, but we estimate that there are nearly 2,000 families in our local community who could be benefiting from our help. Each year we fundraise so that we can reach more families and help to create the best possible life for every seriously ill baby, child and young person that needs us. PledgeWe are asking each Partner to pledge a minimum of £5,000 per year, for three years. This funding will go directly into our care costs and will help to fund more hours of care, allowing us to reach more babies, children and young people. PromiseWe promise to honour your commitment to Haven House and members of the Partners will receive: Two complimentary tickets to a Haven House special event Annual Partners event to discuss and advise on upcoming projects at our hospice Priority booking for our special events Invitation for a tour of the hospice and opportunity to meet Haven House CEO, Mike Palfreman A commemerative item to show your support of our hospice Your name listed on recognition board on display in our hospice Your name listed in the Haven House annual review and on our website.

Haven House Patron, Martin Ellice, will be the ambassador of the Partners. Martin is the Group Joint Managing Director of Northern and Shell PLC and alongside his wife, Gillian, and daughters, Lara and Amy, Martin has supported Haven House for a number of years. We are absolutely delighted that Martin has pledged to become a Partners and will continue his support for Haven House. Martin says: "I am honored to represent Haven House as the ambassador of the Partners and delighted to lead this inspiring group. Since becoming a Patron, I have seen Haven House grow and introduce new services, but there are still families that we cannot reach. As ambassador, I encourage you to invest and give as a Partner, Haven House is such a wonderful charity and together we can help Haven House to reach more families in need."
