Recruiters are renowned for being cut-throat, money grabbing and generally a bit ‘Wolf of Wall Street’ but not the team at Barrington James. Over the years we’ve put our hard-earned money to good causes raising thousands of pounds for worthy charitable causes and now we are fundraising for one of our own.

Friend, colleague and resident Landlady of the Barrington Arms, Helen Parsons was recently diagnosed with incurable stage 4 cancer after a routine mammogram detected invasive ductal breast cancer that has spread to her spine, liver and lungs. As if this wasn’t cruel enough, Helen’s diagnosis comes after her husband Michael, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in December 2019 and subsequently testicular cancer in December 2020 which has since spread to his aorta, liver and lung. Whilst Helen’s oncologist team are hopeful that her upcoming treatment will potentially give her another decade, Michael’s survival rate is only 50-60%. 

Hence the team at Barrington James have set up Challenge BJ with the aim to raise £5,000 by the end of year to help make the life of Helen and Michael easier whilst they undergo their gruelling treatments.

Currently our planned events include fancy dress for Halloween, individual sponsored challenges throughout November which include to run a certain distance in the month, cake bakes, giving up shaving and much, much more as well as International Men’s Day challenges and Christmas Jumper Day.
