Wesleyan wraps up sponsorship for Birmingham Children's Hospital Appeal

Wesleyan, the Birmingham-based specialist financial mutual, is once again sponsoring Birmingham Children's Hospital's 'The Big Bandage' fundraising event this summer.

Taking place on Friday, 10th July, The Big Bandage is a day of fundraising activities across Birmingham and the West Midlands, with people encouraged to show their support by going to work or school wearing a bandage. It is the third year Wesleyan has been the lead sponsor.

Last year, 35,000 people from across the region raised more than 80,000 for the hospital's Children's Cancer Centre. It is hoped 100,000 will be raised for the hospital's new 1 million appeal for Magnolia House, a purpose-built facility that will provide a haven for families after they have received upsetting or life changing news.

Liz McKenzie, Wesleyan's Group Corporate Services Director and chair of its Charity Advisory Committee, said: "As a company, we are proud to see the difference our fundraising is making to the children from Birmingham and across the whole country, and we call on other local businesses to get involved in this fantastic day of activities.

"Everyone at Wesleyan is really passionate about supporting Birmingham Children's Hospital and The Big Bandage again this year. Once again we have a wide range of fundraising events planned at our head office and are really looking to having lots of fun on the day".

Louise McCathie, Director of Fundraising at Birmingham Children's Hospital, said: "We're delighted Wesleyan has chosen to support our Big Bandage campaign again. Its commitment to fundraising is second to none and we wouldn't be able to run the event without its generous support.

"There are lots of ways people can get involved. Whether you decide to bandage yourself, your boss, your friends, or even your teacher, taking part is simple - just make a donation, wear a bandage for the day and show your support on Friday, 10th July.

"We would love everyone to get involved so we can reach our all-important target to build Magnolia House - a facility that will help us protect, heal and support our families, just like a bandage does."

Wesleyan is Birmingham Children's Hospital's largest corporate donor, and has supported the charity since 2013. Since then it has raised more than 250,000 for the hospital's Cancer Centre Appeal and is now aiming to raise another 750,000 for Magnolia House.

To register support or make a donation visit or text 'BANDAGE' to 70099 to donate 2.
