We hope to partner with Together for Short Lives for many years and aim to see Barmy Barnet Friday become an established national fundraising day.

On Friday, 13 December, PHS colleagues around the country will be uniting with a Barmy Barnet makeover and fancy dress challenge. The aim of the event is to raise funds and awareness for children and young people with life threatening and life limiting conditions.

As well as the make-over challenge, PHS will also be holding a raffle which includes some really generous donations such as luxury overnight city breaks from Hallmark Hotels and Laterooms.com, gym membership from the Village Hotel, festive hampers from Hey Presto and a golf day from Willis insurance.

Emma Wood, PHS Group Sustainability Manager, said: “It is great that we are able to team up with a charity that is focused on making a difference to young people. We hope to partner with Together for Short Lives for many years and aim to see Barmy Barnet Friday become an established national fundraising day.”

PHS Group plc, one of the UK’s leading workplace service providers, supports a number of national and local initiatives on a group scale as well as encourages its employees in their own efforts to support local charities. In 2013, PHS set up its own dedicated charity foundation to further its contribution towards the community, called PHS Foundation. Its first charity partnership as a foundation is with children’s hospice charity Together for Short Lives.
