Mayor Of Redbridge Gala Ball 2018

This year, I am honored to serve the London Borough of Redbridge as its Mayor. As part of my civic duties, I am raising money for my two charities Saint Francis Hospice and Haven House Children’s Hospice who both provide vital services to the residents of Redbridge. Between them, they provide end of life care services to the entire population of the Borough, and I am proud to be able to promote and support the important work they both do.

Having provided inpatient and day therapy services to Redbridge residents for more than 30 years,
Saint Francis Hospice has recently extended its services so that people with life-limiting illnesses in the Borough of Redbridge now also benefit from out of hours services, giving residents specialist end of life care via home visits and telephone calls when they need it most. Patients now have the opportunity to spend their final days in the comfort of their own surroundings, fully supported by their Clinical Nurse Specialists. Saint Francis also provides their compassionate, specialist end of life care to residents of Barking & Dagenham, Havering, Brentwood and West Essex, serving a population of nearly one million people.

Haven House Children’s Hospice in Woodford Green believes that no family should have to face alone the difficulties of looking after a child with a life-limiting or life threatening condition and provides a range of services to both the child and their families to support them through the most difficult circumstances imaginable. Services include planned respite, short break and end-of-life care in the hospice, as well as services designed to improve emotional and physical wellbeing, which are provided in the Holistic Care Centre and out in the local community. Since 2003, and particularly in the last five years, the growth in demand for services for the whole family has been dramatic. Since opening, Haven House has cared for over 900 children and families across North and North East London, West Essex and East Hertfordshire. Their vision is to help another 500 families per year by 2020.

Both hospices receive less than 28% funding from the government, and therefore can only function when the community, volunteers and sponsors step in to provide much needed funds. I would like to ask whether the Fanmakers would become part of the amazing group of people that keep these services available for those who sadly need them.

My Mayor’s Appeal Committee is continually running numerous events in the Borough throughout my mayoral year from local quizzes, dinners, fun runs and shows to a Valentines Ball at Bancrofts in February and a gala show at the end of my Mayoral year. I am approaching local businesses and organisations that I am associated with to see whether they would kindly support my mayor’s charities through sponsorship. I would very much appreciate it if you could support and be willing to sponsor my much loved charities.

If you require any further information then please contact me and I will ask my office to arrange a meeting or you can always contact me on my home telephone number 0208-989-3315.

I sincerely hope that you will be able to support my residents in Redbridge who have life-limiting illnesses receive the best possible care in the worst of circumstances.

Yours sincerely

Cllr Linda Huggett
Monkhams Ward

Mayor of Redbridge 2017-2018

GDPR guide for SME’s and Clubs

With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming into force on 25 May 2018 there are a vast array of commentators, who all seem to say much the same “nothing useful” and merely reflect a management responsibility without any practical suggestions on what anybody needs to actually DO. Apart from stating the obvious, which they often do, they lack implementation guidance.
