Christmas jumpers raise vital funds for local children’s hospice
The Health-on-Line offices were full of festive cheer on Friday 19th December 2014 for their annual Christmas jumper competition in aid of Julia’s House Children’s Hospice. With prizes for the Best Handmade Christmas Jumper and Best Shop Brought Christmas Jumper, the staff at Health-on-Line showed their creative flair with human Christmas trees and homemade Santa costumes galore. The competition was held alongside a silent auction as part of Health-on-Line’s year-long fundraising plan which has raised over £6000 for the Dorset Children’s Hospice.
Caroline Attreed, Corporate Fundraiser at Julia’s House visited Health-on-Line to judge the competition. Caroline said,
“It was amazing to see the effort that everyone had made with their jumpers and outfits. We really appreciate the hard work and enthusiasm shown by everyone at Health-on-Line. They have been a great support to us over the last year and their contribution has made a real difference to our families”.
Health-on-Line have this year competed in the Dorset Plane Pull, hosted a World Cup day and joined in with the Julia’s House Superhero Walk alongside many other fundraising events in aid of their charity of the year. Fiona Carter, Brand and Marketing Manager, and part of Health-on-Line’s Charity Panel expressed her delight at being able to help the community,
“At Health-on-Line we believe in giving something back to the local town of which we are part of, and are delighted to have been able to support Julia’s House Children’s Hospice over the past year. Not only have we been able to raise a considerable amount of money for such a fantastic cause, but it has provided excellent team bonding for our staff too”.
