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.

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!
