Haven raises over £400 for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution’s famous Fish Supper event
Following the success of its Mayday fundraising event earlier in the year, leading UK holiday company Haven raised an incredible £406 for its charity partner the RNLI, to help support their annual Fish Supper event.
Held at Haven’s support centre in Hemel Hempstead, there was a fin-tastic turn out amongst team and guests on Thursday 6 October. Donations were raised through a host of fun games including ‘Hook a Fish’ where crowds practised their angling skills for the chance to win some fantastic RNLI gifts, whilst others enjoyed a special lunch time menu of traditional fish and chips.
Many donated to enter the raffle for a chance to win the star prize of a 1-night stay at the RNLI’s prestigious college, with views overlooking Holes Bay in Poole Harbour on Dorset’s stunning South Coast. The prize included a personal tour of the college where volunteers are expertly trained to be lifesavers.
Speaking of the event, Georgie Stanton, Senior Strategic Partnerships Manager at RNLI said “It was fantastic to see Haven’s support centre get involved in raising money for Fish Supper this year. Together, our work continues to raise awareness of safety at sea and ensure people have safe, fun holidays by the coast.”
Haven is set to surpass its ambitious target of £125,000 for 2022 with the generous help of guests, owners and team members across its 41 award winning parks and not forgetting its dedicated Hemel Support Centre.
