Josie and Abigail took a four–and-a–half-hour bean bath outside our branch as part of Bridport Hat Festival in September 2017.
They spent from 10.30am to 3pm ‘still paused,’ sat in a bath full of beans on what was a warm Saturday, September 2nd and raised a total of £500. This was in aid of the Brain Injury Rehabilitation and the Brain Tumour Research as the festival supports head-related charities every year.
Filling the bath with beans took us two hours and was possible thanks to one hundred tins donated by our local Morrisons. Another 80 came from Princess Cruises and one hundred and twenty coming from private donations and some from our employees.
The two charities we fundraised for are close to our staff members’ hearts. This was certainly worth doing to raise money for a cause we strongly believe in.
