We are delighted to sponsor Hares About Town, a local public art event supporting Havens Hospices.
Giant hare sculptures will be ‘hopping’ up across Southend in what promises to be a spectacular event for everyone in the local community to get involved in this summer! In partnership with Wild in Art, Hares About Town will feature a free art trail, complete with giant hares and leverets decorated by local artists, a learning programme for schools to take part in, and an auction of the sculptures to raise vital funds for this much-loved local charity.
The funds raised will help Havens Hospices complete the build of the new Fair Havens Hospice opposite Priory Park, a new building that will help the charity care for twice as many patients.
The team here at The Royals are so excited to get involved with Hares About Town! At our Little Royalty events, our little ones will be getting creative and decorating a leveret, plus we will be home to one of the fantastic hares – we can’t wait to unveil the design!
Our Centre Manager, Dawn Jeakings, comments: “We’re really excited at the thought of these beautifully decorated Hares popping up all over Southend’s iconic landmarks! Hares About Town will be an amazing adventure for local residents and is hugely important to Havens Hospices. It will it inspire civic pride and conversation and give people an opportunity to get active on a free and fun day out.”
