Horsham District Volunteer Awards 2022 - the Haven Dream Team win!
Congratulations to our amazing volunteers for winning the Dream Team Award at the Horsham District Volunteer Awards Horsham District Council’s Voluntary Sector Support wanted to recognise and reward the exceptional work of local volunteers during The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebration week which coincided with the national Volunteers’ Week.
The Team's nominator said:
“…a wonderful group of over 60 volunteers who carry out many vital roles for us here at the Henfield Haven.
Without their cheery ‘can-do’ attitudes, quiet ‘getting on with it’ approach and dedication
to the very important work of the Haven, we wouldn’t be able to function.”
The trophy awarded on the day was hand turned and upcycled from reclaimed oak stair treads. With thanks to skilled craftsman, Peter Kelly, a volunteer himself at Amberley Museum and West Sussex Wood Turners.
The trophies were presented by the District Council Chairman Kate Rowbottom and High Sherriff James Whitmore.

NEW MINIBUS FOR THE HAVEN
We have now purchased a bright and shiny 9-seater minibus specially adapted with a lift and wheelchair access.
A huge thanks to Richard and Alex from Coles Automotive - one of our Sponsors - for their hard work sourcing, servicing, MOT'ing and putting new tyres on the bus, all for free. They've also generously agreed to sponsor looking after the vehicle with free mechanic hours too, which is an enormous help.
Ongoing thanks, too, for all the wonderful donations and YOUR support which allowed us at the Haven to purchase this minibus,
so crucial to our operation.
