Kim is a social worker on a CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) ward at The Priory Hospital so helping vulnerable children is a cause close to her heart.

Kim’s friend suggested the 24 hour Gigathon as a bit of a joke but the more Kim thought about it, the more she wanted to see if she could rise to the challenge and raise lots of cash whilst doing it.

Kim will be supported en route by guest singers and her dancers will be jiving along and teaching the audience. A team of volunteers will be shaking buckets. It is likely that HSBC will be matching donations up to 1,000 (we are awaiting confirmation of this).

Local businesses are supporting the Gigathon. The Priory Hospital Southampton are giving Kim a paid day off for the event. All venues have donated their space.  SHB Hire are giving a minibus and driver to transport the team and kit. Signs R Us have created signs for the minibus. Deon Designs have donated designs for posters and t-shirts. Diguru printing have printed promotional posters and banners. Olives Direct are supplying food and drink to keep the team going.

The Good Companions are going to be working with a Charity called Ickle Pickles, who work to support neonatal units and the families that need them. They also use wish lists created by the doctors and nurses to let the charity know what is most important to them. Sometimes it is big pieces of equipment such as an Incubator, other times it is something as simple as a photo printer, so families can have a picture of the child they have to leave every evening.

The Festive Season officially gets under way in Eastleigh town centre on Saturday 17 November.

Santa Claus will take time out from the North Pole to help us switch on the yuletide lights display, inspired by snowflakes and stars, after a day of fun and festivities.
