Park Cameras raise £200 for St. Peter & St. James’ Hospice

On Friday 18th December, staff here at Park Cameras, got into the festive spirit and put on their Christmas Jumpers, ties and costumes to raise as much money as possible for local charity St. Peter and St. James’ Hospice, as part of Christmas Jumper Day.

A turkey, a reindeer and a lot of knitwear!

We joined thousands of people across the country for Christmas Jumper Day sporting our Christmas outfits for the day, donating £2 or more for the privilege. Christmas snacks were provided throughout the day, in return for a small donation. Over the entire day, we were pleased to raise a total of £200!

The money raised will go directly to local charity St. Peter & St. James’ Hospice, who we have chosen to support as our charity of the year and is a charity based in the local area that many of the staff feel particularly strongly about. The hospice receives just 14% of their funding from the government, and have to raise more than £2.6 million every year through fundraising events. That’s £7,200 every single day.

Park Cameras Used Specialist Amy Moore organised the event and said, “We are delighted to have been able to raise £200 for St. Peter & St. James’ Hospice. Coming up to Christmas it is important to support those who are less fortunate than ourselves, and at Park Cameras we wanted to use all of our staff's Christmas spirit in order to make this happen. We hope to have helped St. Peter & St. James’ Hospice continue their fantastic work in caring for some of our community who are most in need.”
