Bluestar is throwing its support behind Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity - as its official good cause for 2017.
We will spend the year raising funds and awareness to help the charity raise money towards the new Children’s Emergency and Trauma Department Appeal in the city.
“Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity is a crucial local resource, helping to enhance the care and treatment of young patients at University Hospital Southampton,” said Bluestar managing director, Andrew Wickham.
“It provides financial support to areas of the hospital service that lie beyond the scope of NHS funding - and this is of enormous benefit to thousands of people living in the local area.
“Indeed many of our own team have benefited directly from the support Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity provides. So we are all delighted to be backing this very worthy cause, and raising as much money as possible over the coming year.”
We have a busy calendar of fundraising planned in partnership with the charity, including bad hair days and cake bakes - as well as special ‘boss in a bus’ and ‘go mad, go blue’ events.
Amy McBrayne, from Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity, added: “We would like to say a huge thank you to all of the employees who generously supported Southampton Children’s Hospital Charity by voting us as Bluestar’s 2017 Charity of the Year. We are absolutely thrilled that they would like support our new appeal for a new Children’s Emergency and Trauma Department.”
