Sandy Bear named Port of Milford Haven’s Charitable Cause of the Year

Staff at the Port of Milford Haven have chosen Sandy Bear Childrens Bereavement Charity to be their official charitable cause of the year throughout 2021. Each year employees vote for a Pembrokeshire-based charity to receive both financial and in-kind support for twelve months.

Ceri Crichton, Charity Development Lead for Sandy Bear is delighted with the news, commenting “We want to thank the team at the Port of Milford Haven for voting for Sandy Bear and the children and young people that we support. Through this partnership, we will be able to make a positive difference to their lives following a significant bereavement. We very much look forward to our partnership and working with the Port team…it will be an exciting year”.

Lauren Williams, Community Engagement Assistant at the Port, is looking forward to working with the charity over the coming year. She said “Sandy Bear provides such an important service to those affected by bereavement so we’re really pleased that we’ll be able to help them, whether that’s financially or through fundraising and volunteering activities.”

Last year, Get The Boys A Lift, a mental health charity based in Haverfordwest, received over £16,000 from the Port as a result of donations and a range of fundraising activities including a challenge to run, walk, row or cycle 6,140 nautical miles – the same distance that an LNG ship travels from Qatar to Milford Haven.
