DHL Tyrefort have been working hard all year to raise funds for our Oncology ward- giving their time as well as fundraising to help us provide the best care for our patients with cancer.

The whole team at the Tyrefort DHL plant have rallied behind supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity throughout 2017 and have got even more lined up for the year ahead!

We welcomed a group of volunteers to the hospital for our Big Bandage day in March, some coming straight off the night shift! The team spent the day across the hospital, taking part in bucket collections, selling merchandise and challenging children and families in our Outpatients waiting area to take part in the fastest bandage wrap challenge! On top of that, the group also led the warm up rounds for our legendary Tug of Wards! Altogether, the volunteers raised an incredible £453 throughout the day and their enthusiasm, energy and passion for our hospital shone through.

It’s such a great cause, I don’t mind that I’ve not been to bed yet. It’s upsetting to see the children coming in but you know it’s worthwhile raising money.

DHL are also fundraising within their warehouse and office, with one of their colleagues, John, organising a head shave and many more activities planned for 2018! We are so grateful for all of DHL’s energy and hard work to support the children and families in our care and can’t wait to see the grand total for 2018!
