Essex-based Haslers Foundation ignites change: infuses charities with vital funding
Money raised by Loughton charity the Haslers Foundation has been distributed to several charities in the Essex area in the form of donations and grants.
This money will support some of the most disadvantaged people in the community and provide a platform to change their lives for the better.
The Haslers Foundation was established by Loughton-based Chartered Accountancy firm, Haslers in 2008.
Donations have been sent to the following organisations:
CHESS Homeless who have received £1,000 which will contribute to the purchase of Tough Furniture for three bedrooms in an HMO property managed by CHESS. They support people who are moving from being homeless to domestic independence. This funding will support an average of 4.5 people per year.
St Clare Hospice, who have received £1,500 for two new specialist mattresses, and Haven House whom the Haslers Foundation have donated £2,200 which will buy them a hydraulic shower trolley, enabling patients to be showered without getting out of bed.
£1,100 was also donated by the Haslers Foundation to Go Beyond, a charity that provides countryside breaks for children that have suffered bereavement, bullying, poverty, and other cruel aspects of life.
Go Beyond CEO, Michele Farmer, said: “Thanks to the Haslers Foundation, we are able to continue to provide a safe and supportive environment in which disadvantaged children and young people can experience the mood-boosting benefits of the natural world.”
The Haslers Foundation is also providing a £1,000 grant to people affected by cystic fibrosis.
Jon O’Shea, Chairman of Haslers, said: “The money we continue to raise is making an incredible difference to those in Essex that need it the most.
“We are proud to support these charities who are doing such a fantastic job for the people in the community and will continue to raise money for such deserving causes.”
The Haslers Foundation would like to reach out to more local charities so they can help support them, and in turn help a wider group of those most in need.
