Our Charity - CHAS
EVH began fundraising for CHAS (Children’s Hospice Association Scotland) in 2003.
CHAS is the only charity providing hospice services in Scotland for babies, children and young people with life-shortening conditions; life-shortening because no amount of medicine – or love – can cure them. Their vision is that every baby, child and young person will have access to palliative care when and where they need it. This sits at the heart of everything CHAS do. Caring for a child with a life-shortening condition can place unimaginable demands on families; physically and emotionally. Quite simply, CHAS are there to lighten their load.
Every year we have one 'main' fundraising event and this year we are focusing on a clean-up of our member's local community. The winners have now been drawn and are noted below.
TEAM ONE (28th September) - Eamonn's Little Litter Louts - Winners ANCHO
TEAM TWO (11th October) - Agnieszka's Tidy Troopers - Winners Copperworks Housing Association
As well as our main event we arrange raffles at different events and this year at out annual conference we are running various activities to help us to raise as much money as possible. So far from your pledges and donations you have helped us raise over £3,000 and we hope to add to this to increase our overall total to over £80,000!! A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far.
