Over the past few years we at Cardens have supported the Rockinghorse Foundation. We have participated in charity quizzes, five-a-side football tournaments and have also taken part in their Dress as an Elf on the Twelfth of December. This year though, our very own Barry Carden is dancing the Charleston for their Midsummer Ball!
Rockinghorse is the official fundraising arm of the Royal Alexandra Children’s hospital. They raise money for life saving and cutting edge medical equipment for children that really need it. The DM Thomas Foundation for young people raises funds to support young people in the areas of health and education, it has evolved and expanded across Europe positively impacting on the lives of thousands of vulnerable and disadvantaged young people.
The Midsummer Ball is a “Strictly Come Dancing” style competition taking place at The Hilton Brighton Metropole. Barry and three other contestants will be dancing in front of a panel of Judges. Each contestant has been targeted to raise £1,000 for Rockinghorse and the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People.
The evening is set to be a lot of fun and a great success – tickets for the event are £80 per person or £750 for a table for ten. Please support Barry by making a donation, simply click here: https://brightonmidsummerball.everydayhero.com/uk/barry to sponsor him!
“As a firm we are committed to giving 1% of our turnover to charity through fundraising, donations and pro bono work and this seemed like a fun way of helping to achieve this.” – Barry Carden
