Local charity, Haven House Children’s Hospice provide palliative and holistic care for babies, children and young people who have life-limiting and life-threatening conditions, while Cancer Research UK carry out world-class research into the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of cancer and promote awareness of the disease to people across the UK.

“Our aim is to help raise vital funds to enable both charities to continue their outstanding work.”
Mike Palfreman, Chief Executive of Haven House, said: “We are thrilled to begin a new and exciting partnership with The Liberty Shopping Centre.
“As a Havering resident I know just how popular The Liberty is with shoppers who come from far and wide to visit its stores each week.
“Not only will this partnership help us raise vital funds for the families that we support, but it will strengthen our presence in the local area.”
Jessica Allchin, Local Fundraising Manager in Essex for Cancer Research UK, said: “We are delighted to be benefiting from this partnership with The Liberty Shopping Centre.
