The Friends of Resthaven Foundation Trust team are working towards an exciting new fundraiser, the Friends Market Day!
The proceeds from this fundraiser will go to Cambridge Resthaven.

We are putting out the call for good quality, used and nearly-new items to sell at the market day.

It's a day for the whole community to come along and enjoy whether they are on the hunt for something special or just happy to browse, looking for something practical, adding some bling to their wardrobe, searching for that bargain, or discovering a treasure!

We haven’t set a date for the market day yet as we are still in gathering mode, collecting enough items to sell.

If you or someone you know is looking to give away unwanted items, here is a way to help downsize and at the same time give items a new lease of life in someone else’s home.

Ideal items are paintings, antiques, books, classic cookware, jewellery, and garden art. Not large furniture, house lots or electrical appliances.

Please give Laurie or Tracy from the Friends of Resthaven Foundation a call if you are keen to donate and they will organise a time to collect the items.

'Project RESTHAVAN' - 2021

June 2021

Cambridge High School's amazing Extension 4 class have launched the 'Project ResthaVAN' to help fundraise $70,000 for Cambridge Resthaven for a van!

In the words of the Extension 4 team...
"The main focus of our campaign is to raise funds for a van for Resthaven Cambridge. Hence the name, ResthaVAN.

We have a heap of things planned! Such as a Bingo Night at Resthaven and the Extension 4 Showcase. 

Be sure to keep posted on our social media to live the journey alongside us. Our planned events will lead up to our final, main event - a town wide dress-up day themed "Thrifty Fifties" - which will happen on Thursday 5th of August. Extension 4 will be asking help from the business of Cambridge, who we hope will kindly donate to our van fundraiser and get amongst the fun and joy, as we take Cambridge back in time. We also encourage the public to get amongst it.

However, our ambitions do not end there. Yes, we want to help the senior residents who may be needing help in mobility. But there's far more to it than that. To put it simply, our mission is to build a relationship that enriches the lives of Cambridge High School students and the residents of Resthaven Cambridge."
