Haslers Foundation donates thousands to local causes

The charity foundation of one of Essex’s leading chartered accountancy firms, Haslers, has donated thousands of pounds to a number of causes.

The Haslers Foundation has recently handed over funding to seven charities near to where it is based in Loughton.

One of the charities to benefit from £800 was Epping Forest ReUse. The funding given to the organisation, which helps people on low incomes to purchase affordable furniture, was used to buy washing machines, an oven, a fridge freezer and beds.

The Foundation has also donated £525 to SNAP, a charity that offers a helping hand to thousands of families who have children with disabilities who need support.

The money has helped to fund SNAP’s Hawaiian themed Summer Disco. Those who attended enjoyed hoola competitions, dance-offs and karaoke, as well as ice lollies from a tropical bar.

A spokesperson for SNAP said: “Thanks to The Haslers Foundation, SNAP families have the support they need to give the best possible help to their children and lead more fulfilling lives.”

Haven House Children’s Hospice is another charity to benefit from the Foundation’s fundraising. It has received a donation of £500, which will be used to install light-based image panels, which will transform the hospice.

Gary Taylor, Trusts and Grants Manager at Haven House Children’s Hospice, said: “On behalf of all the children, families, volunteers and staff at Haven House, thank you for your kind support.”

Another £500 has also been donated to Teens Unite; a charity supporting young people fighting cancer to live their best life, while others search for a cure. The donation will contribute to the expenses of Express Yourself Workshops, which improve the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of the young people supported by Teens Unite.

“From everyone at Teens Unite and the young people we support, a huge thank you for your donation. This will help us to bring together more young people so that they do not have to face the effects of cancer alone,’ said Lesley Morris, Operations Manager at Teens Unite Fighting Cancer.

The three other donations were made to St Clare Hospice, the Teenage Cancer Trust and Havens Hospices as part of Haslers10000 fundraising challenge.

This challenge saw staff members collectively run, cycle and swim 10,000 miles in a matter of months to raise money.

The donation to St Clare Hospice paid for an Oxygen Concentrator, while the donation to Havens Hospice helped to fund a Klearside Rainbow Bed.

The final donation to the Teenage Cancer Trust has been used for five school presentations across Essex, ensuring that young people and their families know the signs of cancer and feel confident to seek help

Yvonne Mackintosh from the Teenage Cancer Trust, said: “I just wanted to thank you for your latest donation of £2,100, bringing the total raised so far to a phenomenal £23.600, this is an incredible amount of money and means so much to the Teenagers and Young adults that are treated in one of our 28 units, your generosity will help to take us a step closer to our goal of being there for every young person with cancer.”

Jon O’Shea, Chairman at Haslers, said: “The Haslers Foundation continues to do exceptional work and to date has donated hundreds of thousands of pounds to good causes.

“Everyone at Haslers does their bit to raise money and without their support and that of our clients, none of this would be possible.”
