Is it a bird, is it a plane, no its the Bennett Griffin Santa’s (and a reindeer!)
If you visited the Bennett Griffin offices last Friday (12th December) you would have been greeted by Santa’s on reception in our Worthing and Ferring offices and may have even seen a reindeer wandering around (also known as one of our Property Team in an amazing Reindeer onesie!) but it was all for a fantastic cause….
On Friday 12th December the staff at Bennett Griffin joined with other companies and individuals in and around Worthing to get into the Christmas spirit and raise money for St Barnabas House.
This was the 3rd year that St Barnabas had organised the ‘wear a Santa suit day’ event to raise money for their hospice and each year Bennett Griffin have taken part. St Barnabas House is a local independent charitable hospice in Worthing which offers in-patient and at home end of life care and a range of support for patients and their families. Only a quarter of the funding for the hospice is received from the NHS and running the hospice costs over £5m a year so support through fundraising is vital.
Bennett Griffin were pleased to swap their suits for colourful festive jumpers, Santa suits and even onesies and in doing so we raised over £320 for this extremely worthwhile cause.
The Bennett Griffin team are always willing to get involved with charity events such as these and look forward to more fundraising fun in 2015!
