Managing Director of Caremark (Worthing & Arun), Andrew Demetriou commented: “We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone that came to our event, we have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community. St Barnabas House is a charity very close to our hearts and it has been a great opportunity to raise both awareness and of course, some much needed money, so they can continue with the fantastic work they do on a daily basis.
After going to have a look around St Barnabas House a few weeks ago, we felt that we really needed to get behind the charity so we have decided to make them our charity of the year and we look forward to putting on lots of other events thought 2018, to try and make a real difference”.
