The Kingston Barnes’s Charity Goal Completed! £7,778.56 raised – Kingston Barnes are thrilled to reveal, that as proud supporters of Above and Beyond, we have completed our goal to raise over £7,500 to refurbish the Sensory Room at the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
This is the 2nd year of our corporate partnership with Above and Beyond (registered charity no. 229945), we have chosen to support this charity as they raise funds to make a real difference to patient care in Bristol’s nine city centre hospitals. The projects they fund improve the hospital environment, support ground breaking research to deliver the treatments of tomorrow, provide specialist medical training for staff and state-of-the-art equipment.
Their mission is to make a real difference to patients, their families and the staff who treat them. Each year they invest in projects that go above and beyond what the NHS can provide.
This has been achieved through a variety of events that we have held over the past two years, including our Fun Fair and Music Festival that took place last summer, and our annual Charity Football Tournaments. A massive thank you to all that took part and to all who have helped us reach this fantastic goal.
A special mention has to go to our very own James Kingston who single handily took on the monstrous challenge to complete a triathlon – Ironman 70.3 for the charity and managed to raise a fantastic amount in sponsorship. Again, a huge thank you to all that have made a donation.
We look forward to continuing our fund raising efforts in 2017. Watch this space for news on our fund raising activities and for the chance to get involved!
