Bennett Griffin gets into the Christmas Spirit to raise money for St Barnabas
Bennett Griffin Solicitors swap their business suits for Santa suits and Christmas jumpers this year to raise money for St Barnabas. The local annual event has taken place for the last 3 years and has been a huge success.
St Barnabas said; ‘Last year, we were overwhelmed to have over 600 Santa’s take part and raise a staggering £18,162 for St Barnabas House – a fantastic achievement!. The event is open to anyone, regardless of whether you are in the office, at home, at college or even doing some last minute shopping. We even have child sized suits should they be required!’
This year St Barnabas hopes to beat this and encourage local businesses and groups to register with them. If you would like to take part in this year’s fundraising event, or would just like to donate some money to this fantastic charity visit the St Barnabas website.
St Barnabas House is a local independent charitable hospice located in Worthing, West Sussex which was first opened in 1973 by a local anaesthetist, Dr Francis Gusterson.
St Barnabas services include:
- 20 bed In-Patient Unit
- Day Hospice with 18 places
- Community Palliative Care Team
- Family Services Team
- Education Department
- Hospice at Home
The St Barnabas hospice team consists of nurses, doctors, social workers, counsellors, a Chaplain, physiotherapists, complementary therapists, an Artist-in-Residence, the Hospice at Home team and a dedicated band of friendly volunteers.
Bennett Griffin will be taking part in the Santa suit day which takes place this Friday 12th December 2014 so if you pass by our offices in Ferring or Worthing and see Santa’s on their sleighs, please be assured this is all in aid of raising money for a fantastic cause!
