Proud to support Safe in Sussex

Carpenter Box staff dug deep into their wardrobes and their pockets today! All in aid of raising money and awareness for the Safe in SussexShocking Shirts and Funky Frocks” Day.

About the charity

Safe in Sussex is a registered charity in West Sussex. It provides refuge, help and support for people affected by domestic abuse. They have 4 refuges which include a children’s support service and they run various facilitated groups in the community.

Shocking Shirts and Funky Frocks

Staff members wore their most outrageous outfits, funky frocks and shocking shirts. We held a virtual fashion parade on our company intranet. Votes were taken and a small prize awarded to the most liked outfit of the day. Queen of the catwalk was Administrator Debbie Burbidge from the Business Services Team in our Worthing office. Well done Debbie! A total of £85 was raised at the end of the day!

Some of our staff members at their jazzy best!

Carpenter Box Charitable Foundation

The day was organised alongside Safe in Sussex through our Charitable Foundation (CBCF) which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019. The CBCF has helped to raise over £200,000, which is given to small, local groups in the community, particularly the ‘grass-root’ charities who often find fundraising difficult.
