Waterfall House - Birmingham Children's Hospital Cancer Centre Appeal

Birmingham Children's Hospital Cancer Care Appeal

Following an all staff vote in 2013 we joined forces with the hospital, with the intention of raising £120,000 in two years for the Children's Cancer Centre Appeal.

However, after only 12 months we had smashed this target leading the business to increase its pledge to a whopping £250,000, which we achieved in December 2014. This made us the largest corporate donor to the appeal.

The money has been used to fund the hospital's Children's Cancer Centre Appeal, that will be located at Waterfall House.

The eye-catching building, in Whittall Street on the main Birmingham Children's Hospital site, will be home to a world-class cancer centre, the country's first rare disease centre for children and new theatre space that will open in 2017.

Our staff got involved in a variety of fundraising activities including jumping out of airplanes and taking part in marathons, half-marathons and wolf runs. Other activities have included an abseil, a rap jump, a three peak challenge and sponsored slims and swims.

The appeal came to a climax with area manager Alun Williams, his wife Maria and Wesleyan's CR officer Jessica Wilkes-Reading, giving up their Christmas Day to dress up as Santa and his elves to deliver presents to over 150 patients at Birmingham Children's Hospital who were too poorly to make it home.

The success of the first two years saw us extend our fundraising partnership until the end of 2016.

Jessica said: "Wesleyan and Birmingham Children's Hospital have both been part of the fabric of the city for more than 150 years and so it made perfect sense to us that we support the incredibly important Children's Cancer Centre Appeal".
