Create98 are very excited to be the proud sponsors of this year’s Havens to Havens Walk on Sunday 1st September.
We need you! We are looking for a team of Create98 volunteers to take part in the walk, support on the day at our studio or help create flags to take on the walk!
The Walking Team
You can join the walk to remember a loved one, to keep fit or for a fun day out while supporting your local hospices. It is a family friendly event, suitable for all ages and abilities, with 5 or 10 mile options to choose from. Starting at Little Havens, the walk takes you through the beautiful grounds of Hadleigh Castle, down to Old Leigh, along Chalkwell Beach. You’ll either finish the walk at Fair Havens Hospice with a delicious cream tea, or enjoy your tea and walk back to Little Havens afterwards if you’re a brave 10 mile walker!
Create98 would absolutely LOVE to have a huge team supporting Havens by taking part in the walk. Please go to the Havens website if you’d like to sign up.
If you are available on 1st September but are unable to take part in the walk, we are looking for volunteers for various tasks on the day. We need a number of people to help man the Create98 re-fuelling stations along the route (think handing our water and cheering!) Plus we will be running creative activities at the studio for people to take part in as they pass (or if they need a break!) so these will need helpers too.
Flag Making Team
This year every walker will be offered the opportunity to attend a workshop at Create98’s studios to make a personalised flag to take on the walk. Not only does this give each participant a beautiful keepsake from the walk, it also provides an eco-friendly alternative to the balloons that have been given out in previous years.
Saturday 10th Aug 10am-1pm or 2-5pm
Sunday 18th Aug 10am-1pm or 2-5pm
We understand that not all walkers will be able to attend one of these dates though. This is where our volunteers come in… Create98 are aiming to pre-make 100 flags that can be given out on the day, so we’ll need a big team of creatives to help paint the flags, sew the hems and get them on the poles.
Havens is a wonderful charity that supports so many people in our local area, so this is a fantastic opportunity to show your support and give something back. We know we can muster up a lot of Create98 team spirit to bring to this hugely beneficial event!
To become a volunteer for Create98 please email firstname.lastname@example.org or sign up for the walk here.
