The boys are getting ready for their big day!

Yuliya is just putting the final touches to our boys, going to miss them, but will you be a very lucky winner?  Find out tomorrow evening at 5pm on the Havens Fundraising Events Page.

Good luck and thank you for your wonderful donations.

Early 2019 we decided to embark on a project that would make use of some 3D printing plastics we had on stock, which may otherwise have ended up in landfill, albeit the plastic material itself (3D printing filament) PLA "Polylactic Acid", is made from corn starch and would eventually bio-degrade, we decided to make use of the plastic, bring it back to life and so the idea of Groot was born.

The 3D Digital model is available here  and as it is not for commercial use, we thought it would be great to fund raise by offering the wonderful Groot to anyone who is interested and put the money to a very worthwhile cause, the Little Havens Children's Charity.

Groot is 8 feet tall and is made from 30 spools, 9750 metres of Biodegrable plastic - 1500 hours of 3D printing and 10 hours of hand painting by the talented Georgina.

At the end of the crowdfund period we will place all the donation entries together and a representative of the Little Havens Charity will make the draw.

For every £ you donate you will have an entry into the draw, £1 = 1 entry, £5 = 5 entries and so on.  The more you can find to donate the more chances of winning this amazingly unique creation.

Groot does come apart in several pieces and we will be willing to transport/deliver him within a 200 mile radius of Southend on Sea Essex, free of charge.  Otherwise he can be collected in person or delivered via DPD for a minimal fee.

The final day to make a donation and be entered into the draw is Thursday 28th May 2020.

Thank you and good Luck!
