Fundraising and Events
HAD provides many services that are either free of charge or subsidised, from information and advice, to travel and professional equipment assessments. HAD’s existence is very much dependent on the support and generosity of our supporters, thus helping us to promote and improve independence and well being, and make a real difference to people's lives. Following the 100% local authority cuts to our funding, it has become even more important for us to secure regular fundraising. Besides, we always try to put the 'fun' in fundraising.
Below are some of our future fundraisers to celebrate our 60th anniversary during 2018. If you would like to help us or want to run a HAD event of your own, call DAVID SIMS on 01707 324581. He'd be pleased to speak with you.
We have recently had The RO Group in Potters Bar and Onslow St Audrey's School, Hatfield supporting us. LOOK OUT FOR OUR FANTASTIC GOLF DAY AT THE HERTFORDSHIRE ON WEDNESDAY 10 OCTOBER! HOLESOME ENTERTAINMENT AND YOU COULD WIN A MINI COOPER, COURTESY OF SPECIALIST CARS, STEVENAGE!
