CHSA members and guests raise over £8000 for Grief Encounter

Members and sponsors of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA), together with their guests, raised over £8000 at the association’s annual gala ball for the chairman’s charity, Grief Encounter.

Grief Encounter supports bereaved children and their families to help alleviate the pain caused by the death of someone close. Chairman of the CHSA, Stephen Harrison, said: “We set the goal of raising £10,000 this year to pay for a residential retreat for up to 30 bereaved children. Thanks to the generosity of our members and their guests we are now well on the way.”

David Garcia, vice president of the CHSA and the driving force behind the gala ball, said: “The gala ball is always a highlight event, bringing together some of our members and their guests. A particular mention must go to Linda Belcher who runs our secretariat so brilliantly. Linda’s typical hard work and creativity made this evening another special and memorable event. Putting something back is at the heart of our ethos. A huge thank you to all our members and guests who contributed on the night and to our sponsors who made the whole event possible.”
