In 2015, we were saddened to hear of the passing of Mrs Gwen Horrigan, former mayor of Southend. Her work in the community was recognised with a very well-deserved MBE in 2005, and she was a huge supporter of HARP and was involved with many of our activities.
After her passing, she left an amazing legacy gift of £10,000 to HARP. This money will help us to continue helping to find local homeless people housing, a cause that Mrs. Horrigan was incredibly passionate about. We wanted to send our gratitude to her family and thank them for their continued support.
Not many people know that they can leave a gift in their will to a local charity. If this is something you might be interested in, please call our fundraising team on 01702 615 000.
