Oakhaven Hospice Beaverbrook 30 for 30 Challenge

Part of a six-month fundraising campaign, we are aiming to raise a total of £10,000 for Oakhaven Hospice between October 2022 to March 2023.

All the money raised from the Beaverbrook 30 for 30 Challenge goes to the Oakhaven Neighbours Project which provides crucial support to their clients in their own homes.

Living with a life-limiting illness can be lonely and can make everyday tasks difficult for both the patient and their loved ones. The Oakhaven Neighbours project provides a friendly face to help with running errands, picking up prescriptions or shopping, walking the dog, helping out around the house or simply having a coffee and a chat.

The support they provide is invaluable to those who may be struggling or living in isolation to remain as independent as possible in their own homes.
