Campden BRI staff give a big boost to charity

Staff at Campden BRI, the food and drink research organisation, have raised £2,100 for the mental health charity MIND.

The fundraising team from the company, based at Chipping Campden, ran a number of events throughout the year. The cheque was presented to Claudine Pearson, from the charity's local branch, Springfield MIND.

She said: "We're very grateful to the staff at Campden BRI for supporting us. It will help us with our aims of delivering local services that promote wellbeing and the prevention of mental health problems."

Jody Cuss, a member of Campden BRI's fundraising team, said: "The importance of mental health is becoming increasingly acknowledged, so it was great that our staff chose MIND as their charity for the year and put their hands in their pockets to raise more than £2,000."

For 2019, Campden BRI's staff have chosen Helen & Douglas House as their charity for the year. It provides hospice care for terminally ill babies and children, and their families in Oxfordshire and its surrounding counties, including Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and Wiltshire.

Campden BRI provides technical, legislative and scientific support and research to the food and drinks industry worldwide - with a comprehensive "farm to fork" range of services covering agri-food production, analysis and testing, processing and manufacturing, safety, training and technical information services
