NEWS CHSA Members Raise £11,500 For Andi’s Fund


Members and sponsors of the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers Association (CHSA) raised £11,500 during 2014 for Andi’s Fund, a special charity raising money for genetic research aiming to find a cure for cancer. The second tranche of funds was formally presented to representatives of Andi’s Fund last month by the CHSA chairman, Stephen Harrison.


Andi Bernstein was diagnosed with breast cancer at 34 years of age, when her son was just six months old. She fought the disease, never complaining and remaining positive, but passed away in 2011 aged 47, after a 13-year struggle. Andi saw genetic research as the key to a cure, and her husband Tony set up Andi’s Fund to raise £1 million over the next three years for this life saving research.


The CHSA has raised the funds through its highlight events, which include its Annual Golf Day and Charity Ball. The Charity Ball took place in May at the Tara Copthorne Hotel in Kensington and the Golf Day took place at Oulton Hall in September.


Speaking of their fundraising efforts, Stephen Harrison, Chairman of the CHSA and Chief Executive of Harrison Wipes, said: “I am incredibly proud of the contribution made by our members and sponsors throughout the year. Their generosity has meant we have raised an incredible sum of money that we know will now be used to tackle this disease that kills mothers, sisters and daughters, devastating families.


“We are extremely grateful for every single donation, large and small, we will continue our fundraising activities and look forward to raising even more next year.”
