Enjoy One Great Day of Fun-raising
The Harvey Centre
ON Saturday 8th June, The Harvey Centre, Harlow is joining forces with One Great Day, Paradise Wildlife Park and Haven House Children’s Hospice, to raise funds for the two children’s charities that are close to the hearts of many Harlow families.
Families are invited to come to The Harvey Centre between 10am – 4pm to meet the team from Paradise Wildlife Park, who will be visiting with their baby dinosaur, furry friend and ride-on-ponies, as well as showcasing some interesting artefacts to admire. There will also be an opportunity for the perfect family photo with their selfie frame and backdrop!
Haven House Children’s Hospice will be running a raffle with some fabulous prizes donated by stores at The Harvey Centre, with all proceeds going to charity. There will also be the chance for customers to have their face painted to transform themselves into their favourite character, for a small donation to charity.
Plus! – with thanks to The Entertainer, there will be special appearances by Darth Vader throughout the day!
All proceeds from the day will be split equally between Great Ormond Street Hospital and Haven House Children’s Hospice as part of One Great Day. One Great Day is a registered charity, initiated in 2014 by parents whose son received care at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Their aim is to inspire, engage and empower communities to make a difference by getting involved in a series of local fundraising events, held within shopping centres across the UK on One Great Day!
One Great Day has so far raised over £500,000 for more than 110 different children’s health charities across the country and this is your chance to help raise valuable funds for two fantastic charities.
Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “We’re incredibly proud to be taking part in One Great Day, once again. Childhood illness is something you never dream of happening within your family, but it unfortunately touches the lives of many. This event not only shines a light on this, but celebrates the work of these incredible charities with a day packed with fun. We look forward to welcoming everyone to enjoy this great event!”
