Central team raises £12,300 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital

A children’s hospital in Birmingham has received a cash boost of over £12,300 over the course of six years of fundraising, thanks to charity events held by the team at Central.

Members of the Birmingham-based team have taken part in a number of events in the past six years, including dress down Fridays and the sponsorship of the wards at the hospital during Christmas time.  

Birmingham Children’s Hospital is the UK’s leading specialist paediatric centre, caring for sick children and young people up to the age of 16. Located in the city centre, the hospital and its staff are world-leading in some of the most advanced treatments, complex surgical procedures and cutting-edge research and development.

Katie Harris, Corporate Partnerships Officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We’re so grateful to the team at Persimmon Homes Central for their continued support over the years. Their fundraising has helped us improve the hospital experience for our children and families, as well as create better treatments through the purchase of the latest equipment and ground-breaking research. It’s a really special partnership to us. Long may it continue.”  

Neil Williams, Managing Director at Persimmon Homes Central, said: “What we do is about so much more than building quality homes; it’s also about supporting the communities in which we build in a number of ways.

“At Persimmon, we encourage our team to raise funds for causes close to their hearts and it’s great to know that our fundraising efforts throughout the past six years have been able to raise a significant amount for such a worthy regional cause.”
