BDR Help Raise £10,000 for Birmingham Children's Hospital
Founder Concert Member BDR Voice & Data Solutions were proud to donate the top prize for the recent Birmingham Children's Hospital Big Spring Raffle which helped raise in excess of £10 000 for play facilities.
BDR are a dedicated champion of the Hospital charity and offered a weeklong stay for a family in the company Penthouse apartment in the La Torre region of Spain. The prize, including flights, was worth over £1000.00
All BDR staff held a vote to decide the charities of choice and Birmingham Children's Hospital was one the winners, holding a special place in the heart of some with small families who have had personal experience with the hospital. This is the second time that we have supported the children's hospital and as well as raising funds through other charitable activities, BDR chooses to donate 'big ticket' prizes such as this to help the hospital boost awareness of its seasonal fundraising campaigns.
BDR Voice & Data Solutions founder and CEO, Bahman Rahimi, explains the decision:
"Every year we looks to work with a local charity and for the last two years we have chosen to support the amazing Birmingham Children's Hospital. It has such a positive impact on so many young people's lives in the Midlands. This is the second year we have donated a prize for the hospital's annual spring raffle. As a business, the raffle is a fundraising activity that all the staff can easily get behind."
Deputy Director of Fundraising at Birmingham Children's Hospital, Vikki Calcutt, said:
"We are delighted to have the support of BDR for our Big Spring Raffle for the second year running. Our Let Us Play appeal will go a long way to providing some fantastic play facilities for children and young people at the hospital. With such a great prize on offer we hope to raise £10,000."
The monies raised from Birmingham Children's Hospital's Big Spring Raffle will go towards its Let Us Play Appeal, with the campaign target met, work can now begin on transforming playrooms across the hospital.
