St James’s staff take the plunge

St James’s Place employees and clients have swum the English Channel and raised money for charity Hope & Homes for children.

Two relay teams each made up of six staff and cli- ents of St James’s Place star- ted their swim from Folkestone, Kent at 9.30 on Friday morning and got to Calais 12 hours later.

The firm is hoping to raise 100,000 for orphaned and abandoned children in Kosovo.

Partner John Greening, who organised the event, visited Sierra Leone last year to witness at first-hand the help that Hope & Homes for Children is providing there through donations raised through the St James’s Place Foundation. The foundation has raised over 1.1m for the charity.

Greening says: “Hope & Homes for Children is so proud of the swimmers for embarking on this huge challenge and has offered its sincere thanks for taking on such a gruelling task.”
