Fittleworth Medical celebrate 35th birthday with exercise challenge for St Barnabas

Friday 16 August 2019

Fittleworth Medical, who provide home dispensing and clinical advice services, have donated over £3,500 to St Barnabas House after setting themselves the challenge of completing 35 hours of exercise to mark their 35th birthday year.

Exercise bikes and cross training machines were placed in the company’s Littlehampton and Nottingham offices and 150 members of staff pedalled and pushed their way to more than double their target – collectively achieving over 74 hours of exercise and covering a total of 1,788km.

A number of Fittleworth Medical employees have friends and family members who have received care from St Barnabas.

Gaby Day, Client Engagement Team Leader at Fittleworth Medical lives in Littlehampton and has lost two family members this year who were cared for at home by the St Barnabas Hospice at Home team.

Gaby says, “The support my family received from St Barnabas was second to none. The nurses came over three times a day and they were so kind, reassuring and helpful. It was a huge relief having them around.

“As well as caring for my relative, they always asked if the rest of the family were OK too. The nurses would offer to make hot drinks and always had the time to sit and chat with us and help us understand our relative’s slow decline. St Barnabas made a devastating situation more bearable and I can’t thank them enough. Raising money for this fantastic charity means they can support another family through a life-changing situation. I don’t know what we would have done without them.”

Jo Bacon, Community Fundraising Officer at St Barnabas House, says, “We’re so grateful to Fittleworth Medical for choosing to fundraise for St Barnabas House. The generosity of our corporate supporters allows us to continue to provide our vital services and the £3,500 they have raised is enough to provide a whole day of Hospice at Home care for 23 patients and support for their families.”

Corporate partnerships are invaluable to St Barnabas House and there are numerous ways businesses can choose to get involved and show their support. To find out more visit: www.stbh.org.uk/corporate-support
