One thing we love to do here at Barrington James is raise money for charities. Having a dedicated charity for every quarter, we like to come up with unique and fun ways to fundraise. Our charity for quarter two was our local hospice covering Sussex and Surrey, St Catherine’s Hospice.

On 5th April, our Head Office dressed up as Superheroes and supported Alex Coppen, Cara Burnett, Ethan Maynard and Holly Bird as they abseiled over 100ft down the Sandman Hotel in Crawley. In addition to this we are delighted to be sponsoring a heart in their Heart to Heart trail across the county. But of course being Barrington James, we haven’t stuck to the rules of selecting a ready designed heart, instead we ran a competition within the company for a chance to team up with a local artist and design the Barrington James heart which St Catherine’s Hospice have fully supported.

Suzanne Davis, Corporate Fundraiser at St Catherine’s Hospice said:
“Barrington James have really engaged with this project, being the only sponsor to run a staff competition to design their own heart. The wining designer has worked with our artist in a unique collaborative venture, and we’re really excited to see their finished heart!”

Senior Consultant, Robin Glover, won the competition to be our Heart to Heart Ambassador and work with local artist Rachel Cowell, here he explains why he wanted to get involved;

“When the opportunity to get involved with the Heart to Heart competition came up I jumped at the chance to support an incredibly worthwhile organisation. I feel that the work they do is more important than ever and it is critical to support causes which will become more vital in years to come. A while back my brother, died unexpectedly in an unfortunate accident. At the time I didn’t really know where to turn and found it difficult to come to terms with and get the help I needed, I wasn’t aware of the support I could have got from St Catherine’s Hospice and so I want to try and raise awareness so people going through similar situations at least know where to find help and support if they need it, through what can be a very traumatic and life changing experience. 

Being an amateur artist myself, the Heart to Heart scheme provided the perfect platform to do something I love as well as doing some good work to try and raise awareness for a cause I truly believe in. The theme of my design is a representation of how I view the incredible staff and all the volunteers. For many people they are guardian angels and have real passion for helping people which I respect massively and therefore my design showcases that passion in some of the script on the front and also incorporates angel wings which cocoon the heart and in my eyes represent the warmth and support that the staff and volunteers give to everyone that they help.”

Whilst we like to support charities that are local to us, more than ever we love to support charities that have a close to connection to our staff. Here, we catch up with Consultant Chris Tower about how his life has been touched by St Catherine’s Hospice;

“On 25th March 2017 my Mum was taken into St Catherine’s Hospice after a two year battle with Soft Tissue Sarcoma and she spent her last night alive at St Catherine’s Hospice. The staff there were so out of this world amazing, it is hard to put in to words! The work that is done and the facilities they have are just fantastic. They cared for my Mum for only one night and two days, but the experience with them was so personable and caring, and at such time of desperation within the family; they accommodated nearly 20 of us surrounding my Mum throughout the days. The next day was Mother’s Day, the day which my Mum passed. The staff handled everything well and provided care for me and my family for weeks after mum had been gone, I can’t thank them enough!”

 

We are proud to have raised £2,485.55 for St Catherine’s Hospice over the course of Q2 and will continue to support our local hospice throughout the Heart to Heart Trail and into the future.
