    Be a Friend of Coventry Haven


If you would like to support our work, you may like to become a Friend of Coventry Haven. Our Friends use their organisational and networking skills to organise fundraising events, collections and donations. Without them, we would struggle to provide all the essentials to women and children in refuge and their help is highly valued.

Friends of Coventry Haven are bold and creative people who put a lot of energy into their fundraising projects. All ideas are encouraged and very welcome. Previous projects have included:

-    Organising charity galas
-    Approaching local schools to arrange non-uniform days
-    Negotiating free storage space and meeting space
-    Asking local businesses to adopt Coventry Haven as their Charity of the Year or preferred charity 
-    Secret Santa appeals / cake sales
-    Raising awareness in the local media
-    Sourcing supplies for our refuges – new bedding, food, baby equipment and toys

By fundraising for us, our Friends also have an essential part to play in raising awareness about domestic violence, and about the work of Coventry Haven.

We are in the process of creating a Friends of Coventry Haven network and newsletter, so that our Friends can get together more easily to share ideas, support each other, and work on joint fundraising projects, alongside our Development & Funding Officer.

To be one of our Friends, simply download the registration form and the fundraising agreement form, or contact our office on 02476 444077 and speak to Jaime, or email or please return both completed forms, either by email or post.

We will then send you a Coventry Haven Fundraising pack which includes a variety of templates for sponsorship forms, event posters and event/raffle tickets. It’s also full of useful tips and ideas, and gives some important guidance on staying safe and legal.

For more information, call us on 02476 444077.
