Forest Boys’ School mark second pay for a day for Haven House

Following the boys’ fundraising efforts last year, £12,000 was raised, which will enable the Hospice to provide three days’ worth of care to its patients. The boys took part in a variety of events including cake sales and helping at supermarket check-outs in order to raise the money.

Head of Boys’ School, Mr Kayne said: “We are delighted to continue to support Haven House Children’s Hospice. The boys hugely value the relationship with this marvellous local charity and we remain very committed to our fundraising efforts.”

The second ‘pay for a day’ coincides with Boys’ School House Drama, and follows on from the first pay for a day which took place last October.

Speaking after a visit to the Hospice, Forest Sixth Form pupil Will said: “It was extremely interesting to meet and tour Haven House with Community Manager Charlotte. Despite it being a hospice, we came away feeling it was an incredibly happy place. It was great to see in person the difference the Senior School Boys are making.”

A certificate will be displayed in Haven House’s reception, which explains Forest’s ‘pay for a day’ initiative.

Haven House supports hundreds of children and young people, from birth up to 19 years old, who have life-limiting or life-threatening conditions.
