THE Harvey Centre, Harlow is pleased to announce that they have raised £2,347 for charity with a day of fun-raising on Saturday 4th September.
The Harvey Centre joined forces with One Great Day to raise funds for Great Ormond Street Hospital and Haven House Children’s Hospice, two children’s charities that are close to the hearts of many families in Harlow.
Haven House Children’s Hospice ran a tombola with some fabulous prizes, many of which were generously donated by retailers at The Harvey Centre.
Three talented artists helped to make the day a success with customers having the chance to be transformed into a Caricature. Customers also marvelled at the amazing talents of the centre’s balloon modeler.
Further entertainment was provided by Phoenix Live who welcomed some local musicians to their stage to offer them to chance to showcase their talent.
In addition to public donations, The Harvey Centre also received donations from a number of their retailers who were keen to help support such a worthwhile cause.
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.
Bryan Young, Centre Manager at The Harvey Centre says, “We’re absolutely overwhelmed by the generosity of our customers and retailers and we are exceptionally proud to be able to support such amazing charities. Thank you to everyone that contributed to this event, it was an amazing day and we are really pleased with the funds raised for such worthwhile causes”
