Haven House Children's Hospice donation

Jonathan Evens and Henry Shelton present the commission4mission donation to staff at Haven House Children's Hospice

commission4mission exists to encourage the commissioning and placing of contemporary Christian art in churches, as a means of fundraising for charities and as a mission opportunity for our churches. The charitable element of our work is made possible because on each commission obtained by c4m the artist involved agrees to waive a portion of their fee in order that a charitable donation can be made from the overall price of the artwork.
As a result of commissions gained through our first year of operation, c4m has able to donate, from its 2009/10 income, just over £2,700 to charity. This donation has been given to the Haven House Children's Hospice and today c4m's Chair and Secretary, Henry Shelton and Jonathan Evens, visited Haven House to present the donation.

Haven House Children’s Hospice is a charity that provides on-going holistic care for children and young people with life-limiting conditions. They also embrace the needs of the child’s family from the point of diagnosis through to post death care. Their commitment is to enable children to live life as fully as possible in a warm, fun and caring environment. They care for children and young people between the ages of 0 to 19 who have life-limiting conditions and who are unlikely to reach adulthood. They help families by providing a range of services that include day, short break and end of life care, together with therapeutic play in the community. Families can find the support they need when they need it most at no cost to themselves.
Following the cheque presentation, Henry and Jonathan were given a tour of Haven House and saw for themselves the tremendous work done with children and their families and the many recent improvements made to the facilities and services provided. Haven House is a special place for special children and c4m is proud that be able to play a small part in the ongoing support of its services.
