On the 14th February, the members of staff at all three of Proto Restaurant Group’s restaurants supported the ‘GO RED IN FEB’ campaign by wearing red clothes to work. The campaign, part of the ‘Love Your Hospital’ charity of which Proto owner Andy Sparsis is a patron, was aimed at local businesses and organisations to raise money for the proposed new Cardiac Cath Lab at Worthing Hospital.
With each staff member donning red for the day paying £1 to the charity, Proto Restaurant Group quickly raised a lot of money, and with the addition of diners in the restaurant’s adding to the donations, we were able to raise over £200 for the campaign.
You can still donate to the campaign, by visiting the ‘Love Your Hospitals’ Just Giving page at https://www.justgiving.com/strichardshospital/Donate and selecting the amount you wish to donate. Remember, every single penny makes a difference to the campaign, and with heart disease one of the more common causes of serious illness in Worthing, the new Cardiac Cath Lab can save and change so many lives, so please donate whatever you can.
