St Nicholas Hospice Care
St Nicholas Hospice Care provides end of life care for the people and their families in West Suffolk and South Norfolk in their own homes and communities. In 2014 the hospice marked its 30th anniversary and also opened its first outreach centre at the Burton Centre in Haverhill. HaverHalf and Haver10 provided the perfect opportunity for the charity to have a Haverhill fund raiser, and duly raised more than £13,000 for the charity.

Bury Town Pastors
Bury Town Pastors is a church-based initiative which sees volunteers spend time on the streets of the town centre during nights out to ensure revellers are safe and cared for. They are widely associated with the Freddo bars they give out to help mitigate the effects of too many drinks so revellers can get home safely, but they also provide numerous services including water, foil blankets, and important services such as first aid and a listening ear.

Haverhill Scouts and Guides
Haverhill Scouts and Guides are aiming to raise tens of thousands of pounds so that their current huts, which are not fit for purpose, can be replaced. HaverTri was held to raise money to help the group in its fund raising push. The final total raised for this good cause is yet to be finalised, but is set to be thousands of pounds. The town has 2 Scouts groups - 1st Haverhill and 2nd Haverhill Sea Scouts - as well as a Guide group.
Our athletes are also welcome to support a charity of their choice, and have used our events to raise money for other good causes. Examples include Andy Brown, who raised £700 for Diabetes UK while competing in his first triathlon at HaverTri - the Haverhill Research Park Triathlon.
