The Harvey Centre in Harlow hosted ‘One Great Day’ on Saturday 4th September 2021. This national event takes place within communities across the UK to have fun and raise money for Great Ormond Street. Each event also appoints a second beneficiary (usually a local children’s charity) and the Harvey Centre chose to support Haven House Children’s Hospice on this occasion. The public were entertained by a balloon maker, a caricaturist, craft workshops (provided by Phoenix Live) and a fabulous wishing well centrepiece which was constructed by David Sole (ASG Maintenance) from recycled wood.
One Great Day is a registered charity and all proceeds from the day were divided between Great Ormond Street and Haven House.
Simon Hawkins, ASG Operations Director, said, “Literally what a great day! Our team worked extremely well in delivering a safe environment and entertainment for the public to enjoy. The Harvey Centre really did do its bit for the two deserving charities and being part of this nationwide event helps to put the centre on the map and firmly at the heart of the Harlow community.”
Bryan Young, Centre Manager, commented, “What a fantastic day. The whole team, with great support from ASG, made it a wonderful success. I am really proud of everyone and the fact that we managed to raise £2666 for these two wonderful charities.”
