Hallowe’en is here at CBSbutler!
It’s a day of horror and spine-tingling chills at CBSbutler as we celebrate Hallowe’en in true terrifying style, all in aid of The Samson Centre in Guildford.
We’re playing all sorts of games like apple bobbing, ‘hanging donuts’, a pumpkin carving competition, and ‘the balloon game’ which involves a balloon attached to each player’s wrist with a ribbon – last person with an unpopped balloon wins!
Tonight, there’ll be scary movies, more food and games, and a few cheeky beers to round off the celebrations.
Mmm.. tasty eyeballs!
Our staff have really pushed the boat out with their costumes, too - we've got werewolves, ghosts, witches, Jason, Mike Myers, vampires, cats,
a zombie bride, a zombie hippy, a zombie priest... loads of different kinds of zombies...
We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by the effort to which all of our staff have gone; from their amazing costumes, inventive games and unbelievable pumpkin carving skills, to their inexhaustible generosity and energy when it comes to charitable fundraising. We are very proud of our crew of monsters.
The Samson Centre
The Samson Centre for MS, located on the outskirts of Guildford, Surrey, provides practical and emotional support for people living with multiple sclerosis in Surrey.
Multiple sclerosis is a debilitating disease which attacks the central nervous system. It is both permanent and progressive and is the most common neurological condition affecting young adults today.
Currently helping around 150 people, the Samson Centre is often at full capacity, and demand is expected to continue to grow by 10-15% annually. Operational costs exceed £200,000 pa, and as a self-funded charity, the Samson Centre receives no funding from the NHS, nor national or local governments.
Exercise and fitness are essential to those living with MS in order to keep muscles moving and maintain a level of mobility.
The Samson Centre offers physiotherapy, exercise, neuro health classes and gym sessions including adapted rowing; all fully supervised by their three neuro-physiotherapists, two physiotherapist, one physio assistant, three fitness instructors and a volunteer coach for the adapted rowing. Also available are Baric Oxygen Therapy sessions as well as reflexology and massage.
As well as their physical care, the Samson Centre also provides a place for sufferers to socialise, alleviating feelings of isolation and loneliness: not only for victims of MS, but for their families and carers too.
The Samson Centre endeavours to provide sufferers of MS of all ages with the chance to enjoy the best possible quality of life, for as long as possible.
