As part of our ongoing support of Havens Hospices, Utilize was proud to sponsor “The Havens Gin Tasting” held at the Abbey Bar in London last week. 210 attendees from across London and the South-East enjoyed trying a variety of flavoured gins and help to raise over £20,000 from the event and a raffle.
‘Our gin tasting evening raised vital funds that will be used to help many local families at a difficult time in their lives. At the same time, we have reached out to many new supporters in London that we hope will help us again in the future. We’d like to thank the whole Utilize team for their commitment to our charity – without it, the event would not have happened.’

Utilize MD Guy Hocking commented, “It is always a pleasure to work with Lydia and the team at Havens Hospices, our chosen 2018/2019 charity. We have worked on a whole range of projects this year and this was one of the most successful for raising much needed funds for an amazing cause. The team at Utilize are immensely proud to be able to help in whatever way we can; ranging from scaling the UK’s highest mountains, jumping out of aeroplanes or sponsoring events like these.”
Look out for many more stories about how Utilize continue to support the local community over the coming months as we get involved with more charitable causes.
