Corporate Fundraising Round Up - September 2017

Take a look at what our Corporate Partners have been up to recently...

Volunteers at the Summer Patient Party!

In June, patients, siblings, staff and volunteers came together at the Summer Patient Party supported by Butlins. Ten fantastic employees from our partnerships with Whitbread, RBC, Morgan Stanley and XTX Markets played a key role in the event, taking part in many of the activities with the children from arts and crafts to dancing with the Butlins skyline gang who provided lively entertainment on the day!

Suppliers hit the green in support of Premier Inn and Restaurants partnership

July saw over 200 suppliers of Premier Inn and Restaurants come together for a round of golf and gala dinner to raise life-saving funds for the children at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). This annual event, which has been running for the past 5 years, hit an all-time fundraising high by raising over £80,000 through ticket sales, a silent auction, luxury raffle and fundraising games.

Whitbread staff take on the ultimate challenge!

Brave staff from Premier Inn and Restaurants have been taking on a series of daredevil challenges this summer to raise vital funds for the redevelopment of the hospital. 23 team members took to the skies in a skydive day and staff in London and Manchester took the leap of faith by completing a bungee jump. Together they raised thousands of pounds by taking on an unforgettable challenge, pushing themselves to the limit in the process!

OSCAR Dragon Boat Race

We had a record 24 teams take part in this year’s OSCAR Dragon Boat Race. It was a brilliant day which saw employees from the shipping sector battle it out for glory! Lloyds Register proved to be victorious in the end, winning in the final heat by just a few seconds! The day was a huge success in terms of fundraising as well, raising over £150k. 

TAS Cook up a storm!

In late July TAS Restaurants hosted a fundraising dinner for 100 corporate clients and friends from across London. Artist Kaya Mar kindly donated bespoke artwork auctioned on the evening which, alongside ticket sales and personal donations, raised a brilliant £6,600! Thanks to all staff who worked so hard to make the event such a success.

Uni-ball heading into a second year

We are delighted to be celebrating one year of partnership with uni-ball, and what a fantastic year it has been. The partnership launched in June 2016 with a promotion on the sales of their best-selling uni-ball eye pens which are being sold in various high street retailers across the UK, as well as on the GOSH Shop. The initial partnership target was £50,000 but at the end of year one Uni-ball have raised over £75,700!

Uni-ball have now launched a limited edition GOSH pen which can be found in special editions of the five pack uni-ball air, available in Ryman and online. Thanks for their continued support!
