Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre continues year of fundraising
Back in August we brought you the news that the team from Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre had picked Heartlands Hospital Charity and Solihull Hospital Charity to be the centre’s charity partner for the year ahead.
Recently, Scott Edwards and Cheryl Damms, both from Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre, made the trip to Heartlands Hospital to present the Charity with a cheque for a fantastic £2,025.
Carole, a Healthcare Assistant in Outpatients and Sarah-Jayne Wetton, Children’s Outpatients Manager, received the cheque which will help to fund added extras for young patients across Heartlands and Solihull.
The Centre raised the money thanks to a variety of events that have taken place over the last few months, including the Christmas Lights Switch on, Santa’s Grotto, and a Halloween Event.
Cheryl Damms, Marketing and Events Coordinator at Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre, said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Sian as part of our fundraising efforts for The Children’s Appeal. Having seen the plans that both hospitals are achieving, we know that the generous amount of money given by the shoppers of Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre will benefit children in years to come.”
Sian Averill, Fundraising Manager at Heartlands Hospital Charity, said: “Our thanks go to everyone from Chelmsley Wood Shopping Centre and all of their visitors for their amazing generosity. The money that they have raised will help us to provide the best care possible for the thousands of children who are treated across Heartlands Hospital and Solihull Hospital each year by refurbishing the outpatients departments.
“The money that Chelsmley Wood Shopping Centre has raised has helped us to fund the refurbishments that will be taking place on the Children's Outpatients Departments at Heartlands and Solihull, creating light, bright and welcoming spaces for our young patients and their families. We would not be able to do this without the fantastic support of organisations such as Chelmsley Wood Shopping and their generous visitors.”
