Our Giving Tuesday Fundraiser went down a storm today, we were visited from patients, the public and staff across the hospital. We had so much fun, photos were taken, cake was eaten, and funds were raised for our all-important Christmas appeal.
We had a range of activities organised by staff members Victoria, Jenny & Tracey all acclaimed fundraisers within the hospital & their own teams.
You name it, we had it…. a bake sale, how many sweets in the jar, guess the missing ingredient, a raffle and last but certainly not least a ‘win every time’ lucky dip!
We were very lucky and had some fabulous prizes courtesy of our local community. A big thanks to staff at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, Sainsburys Selly Oak, Cake Mole – Rachel & Morrisons Bromsgrove for their support. They donated over £100 worth of goodies towards our fundraiser, and we genuinely couldn’t have run the event without their support.
A very passionate oncology patient in the hospital also gifted £50 towards our activities on the day, which was an incredibly lovely gesture. He himself had lots of fundraising experience so we used one of their ideas to raise even more money for the charity.
Throughout the event we were promoting the wonderful work of the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital, and sharing stories of how your donations help. Donations support patients & families who need it. Our Christmas appeal, is just one of the many funding streams supporting those individuals.
We raised an incredible £280.85, a huge victory!
