Havens Hospices

Every event, making every day count. If youve never joined us wading through a muddy harbour, taken a leap of faith and plunged 10,000 feet in a tandem skydive, or trekked across the globe in one of our overseas challenges then youve come to the right place! Like to take things a little easier and get the whole family involved? Take a look at one of our sponsored walks, runs or bike rides and help us continue 'Making every day count' for the children and adults we care for.

This successful event is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and has raised over 230,000 for The Js Hospice.

This year we intend to create more excitement at the event hub with child-friendly cycle-based activities and stalls; perfect for the whole family (and a party atmosphere.) This is a great event appealing to a wide audience of all age and a party atmosphere. This is a great event appealing to a wide audience of all ages, with families, couples, groups of friends, schools, corporate businesses and more taking part.
