Why sponsor HALFF?

We are seeking local sponsorship for our charity dinner to help us raise essential funding to support your local community. 

You can support our event by sponsoring pre-dinner drinks, liqueurs and chocolates, wine on the table, a table (8 in total), the disco, the fireworks, the Christmas tree, a pianist or even the whole event. We will include you on our publicity, social media, web, press and on the night.  There will be press coverage after the ball and in our annual newsletter which goes out to over 1000 people in the area.

Why should you help us? Good food is totally fundamental for good health.  Most of the commonest debilitating long term conditions are associated with a poor diet. We aim to encourage people of all ages to improve their health (both physical and mental) and prevent ill health by helping them to understand the links between food and health. We achieve this by teaching people to cook simple, nutritious food. 

We focus on the needs of the very young, the elderly, the vulnerable, the disadvantaged and isolated people in towns across East Devon, West Dorset and South Somerset.  We also run a shop and garden in Axminster selling fruit and vegetables which also acts as an information hub for people needing nutritional advice and support.

We reach hundreds of people every year across East Devon, including:

  • Young mothers;
  • 8-16 year olds at youth groups on the poorest housing estates;
  • Devon Young Carers;
  • adults, including:
    • Elderly people living alone;
    • People with mental health issues, who often binge eat when they are depressed;
    • People at risk of or diagnosed with diet related health conditions including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure (HBP) and coronary heart disease (CHD);
    • Men.
