Brentwood Lions Dinner December 4th 2016
Brentwood Lions Dinner
Bennetts were represented at the Brentwood Lions Christmas Dinner on Saturday 3rd December at the fabulous Hutton Hall. We had been invited by the Lions to nominate a charity to receive the proceeds of the raffle taking place at their Christmas festivities. We nominated the Havering & Brentwood Bereavement Service which is our charity of the year for 2017. HBBS is a local “not for profit” organisation which was founded in 1989 and offers a professional and confidential counselling service to local adults, young people and children. The raffle raised an amazing £600 which will help HBBS to provide children with opportunities to socialise with other children who have been bereaved. This type of opportunity is key in supporting children when they make the transition from intensive 1-2-1 support to being able to move on with their lives and see that there is life after a significant loss. We are very grateful to the Lions for giving us the opportunity to begin our fundraising activities for 2017 in such a significant way.
