Over £7,500 raised for Alzheimer’s Society
From the beginning of March 2015 to the end of February this year, Haven Power has been raising money for Alzheimer’s Society through a variety of charity initiatives including dress-down days, auctions and quiz nights.
Alzheimer’s Society was chosen to be our charity of the year after it was put forward by three of our colleagues who have a family member living with the disease. We are delighted to announce that we raised £7,566.75 over the last 12 months which more than doubles any total from previous fundraising years.
Sally Hope, whose father has Alzheimer’s, said:
“The amount we have managed to raise is mind blowing. I always knew that the people of Haven were supportive, but this amount has exceeded anything we thought would be possible.”
Last week the total amount was presented to Mussara Jabeen, a local community fundraiser for Alzheimer’s Society, who commented:
“It was a pleasure meeting the staff at Haven Power, who have worked tirelessly throughout the year raising funds for Alzheimer’s Society. The money raised will help us to provide information and support for people with all forms of dementia and those who care for them. None of this would be possible without fundraising activities such as those undertaken by the generous staff at Haven Power.”

We choose a new charity every year and for 2016, we will be supporting the Children’s Ward at Ipswich Hospital.
