We are very proud to announce that our 2013 Christmas parties raised a staggering £20,000 for charity, all thanks to you.
The money was raised through the fun casinos that take place every night at all three venues and we were very honoured to be given a tour of the hospitals to get a first-hand, and very humbling experience of where the money will be spent.
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital – Tatton Park
The donation will transform key treatment areas at the Children’s Burns unit to create a more child friendly environment such as wall art, murals, light and ceiling displays which will act as a powerful distraction from interventions such as dressing changes and bathing.
Whiston Hospital Special Care Baby Unit – Knowsley Safari Park
Monies raised will go towards helping make further improvements to care for this special group of babies who deserve every chance of survival. The parents were asked what they would like the money to go towards and specialist breast feeding chairs were seen as a priority for the new mums who spend so much time in the unit with their newly born babies. Over 300 babies a year are cared for on the Special Care Baby Unit by the team of expert specialist nurses and doctors who work at Whiston Hospital.
Ronald McDonald House Birmingham from The ICC proceeds.
This donation will help with this much needed ‘home away from home’ that provides free accommodation to families who have children receiving treatment at Birmingham Children’s Hospital. The support will help them bring some much needed seasonal cheer to their families, many of whom stay with them for months at a time and often in difficult circumstances.
We are pleased to announce that our chosen charities for 2014 are…
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital – The Speakeasy Ball, Tatton Park
Alder Hey Children’s Hospital – The Hollywood Ball, Aintree Racecourse
Birmingham’s Children’s Hospital – The Glitter Ball, The ICC, Birmingham
So when you attend one of our parties this year and you fancy a flutter on the blackjack table, please remember it really is for a good cause and let’s see if we can outdo ourselves and raise even more money.
