Generous colleagues at Phillips got into the spirit of the festive season and raised £330 for Pelican Cancer Foundation.
We held a Christmas Hamper Competition where some very imaginative Christmas treats were raffled off raising £330.
Among the hampers was an Italian Job themed basket from our Commercial Property team and Christmas Games from the Residential Conveyancing team. Wills and Probate put together Winter Warmers, the Family Law team came up with Bah Hum Bug, while the Employment Law team and members of Corporate/Commercial put together their Christmas Treats hamper. Not to be out done, our Admin team came up with their Hibernation hamper.
The money raised from the raffle was given a £58 boost by colleagues paying to wear some colourful tops on Christmas Jumper Day.
These events followed on from when kind hearted colleagues recently donated 50 gifts for The Salvation Army’s Christmas Present Appeal.
All of the money from the raffle and Christmas Jumper Day will go to our charity of the Year, Pelican Cancer Foundation.
This small but wonderful charity helps fight against “below-the-belt” cancers.
From its base at The Ark Conference Centre, in the grounds of Basingstoke hospital, Pelican provides grass root funding for ground breaking research and produces and hosts training programmes.
As a result of this work Pelican has had a significant impact on 11.8% of all UK cancer patients.
