With the generous support of e Beaverbrook Foundation, Oakhaven’s Business Enterprise Challenge tasks local businesses and organisations to take £100 and turn it into over £1,000 by 30th November, to help fund the amazing Oakhaven Nursing Team. All the money raised from the challenge will help to fund an Oakhaven Nurse. It costs on average £38,460 per year for a Nurse to provide specialist care to Oakhaven patients. Last year Oakhaven’s nurses cared for nearly 1,400 patients, both in the Hospice and in patients’ homes throughout the New Forest, Totton and Waterside communities. Demand for Oakhaven’s vital palliative and end-of-life services is constantly growing and to continue to meet the future needs of the community, additional nurses will be required. By taking part in the Business Enterprise Challenge, you will help to ensure that Oakhaven’s dedicated and specialist nurses are there for patients and their loved ones at the most di cult of times. e challenge provides a great way to give back to your local community and to make a di erence in the lives of local families.
