Fundraising Heroes


We are so grateful to all our fantastic supporters, we simply would not be able to continue to provide the level of service we do to the women and children in Wolverhampton without dedicated supporters like you.

WOW! We are delighted to announce that the hard-working team at The Halloween Tattoo Bash, ran by Mac ‘Dr Evil’ McCarthy’s Body Modification Emporium/Punctured Body Piercing & Modification, raised a phenomenal £8,850 for the women and children we support at The Haven!!

The event took place throughout the first weekend in November with over 150 top tattoo artists from all over the world attending to showcase their work, trade souvenirs and gifts as well as the all-important bookings for piercings and body modifications. That wasn’t all. There was live entertainment including fire breathing and belly dancers, a hog roast and a VIP fancy dress ball going on until the early hours of the Sunday morning.

The auction raised a phenomenal amount of money for The Haven. The official oil painting artwork for the event was the biggest pull and finally went for a whopping £3,000 to event organiser Mac McCarthy.


Joanne Webster, event co-ordinator said ‘The bidding started for the artwork at £200 and progressed quickly to £3,000 which was Mac's final bid, he didn't want anyone else to have the original for his own show and everyone knew that so the crowd just kept bidding and bumping him up by bidding it was funny to watch and has raised loads for a great cause.’

They have even managed to secure some matched funding for part of their donation making their total a whopping £8,850!

Thank you so much to all of the team! We are so grateful!

Have a look at the photo of Mac below with the artwork he won.




This year they have been working very hard to fundraise for the women and children we support. They have done many events to raise vital funds, from Jam and Jewellery sales to collecting toiletries to support our welcome pack and Christmas projects.
This month they presented us with their collection of toiletries along with a fantastic cheque for £357.00!
This money will make such a difference and go on to support the women and children at The Haven in a number of ways. The toiletries provide an element of comfort to women who arrive with nothing but the clothes on their backs. We are so grateful to all of the women at Tettenhall WI and anyone else who has supported their fundraising efforts along the way.
Thank you so very much ladies!


Wow! Last year we had a fantastic donation from Kate and the team at Project Shoebox.

This year was even better!

WOW WOW WOW! Thank you so so much to Project Shoebox for their phenomenal donation of shoeboxes filled to the brim with all of the essentials for women - from Clarins to Nivea, these boxes have it all and will make perfect Christmas presents for the women at The Haven that we support.
This photo doesn't even do it justice as you can't see a lot of the boxes but we received just over 250 AMAZING boxes and they have filled an ENTIRE room! We are so grateful! Thank you!
... aka... Christmas Matt!
For the last few years, Matt has been fundraising at Christmas to support the children at The Haven.
What started as simply asking friends to buy a gift for a child at The Haven, has since turned into what must seem like a full time job for Matt as he co-ordinates and purchases thousands of pounds worth of gifts to put in our grotto each Christmas.
Thank you Matt!
