Wolves Lottery praised for helping Birmingham Children’s Hospital

Since launching in December last year, Wolves Lottery has helped various great causes and charities and one has reached out to give a very special thank you.

Birmingham Children’s Hospital have written to thank both Midland Sporting Association (who operate the weekly draw) as well as all the Wolves Lottery members who have helped in raising these funds that have gone towards aiding young patients across the West Midlands.

Throughout 2020, Wolves Lottery, as well as its previous incarnation as Goalden Gate Superdraw, managed to raise an incredible £1,000 towards Birmingham Children’s Hospital and, as always, they have been very appreciative of the support and grateful to have these funds in such a challenging year for their charity.

The fundraising team at Birmingham Children’s Hospital said: “Each and every day we are overwhelmed by the kindness of our incredible supporters just like you.

“Birmingham Children's Hospital cares for thousands of children and their families each year, and it is only thanks to the fundraising like yours that we can continue to do more for sick kids.

“From the smaller home comforts, such as tea and biscuits for our parents' rooms, through to life changing, lifesaving research into childhood leukaemia, your support makes a very real and positive difference to our children and their families, at what can often be a very difficult time.”

The hospital charity has recently funded some incredibly exciting projects, including the purchase of new activity toys and wall panels for the Emergency Department and its waiting area, to create a relaxed environment during times when patients and families may have to wait long periods to be seen.

“Often, the improvement of patient experience extends far beyond the walls of our hospital thanks to your support. For our children with hand and upper limb differences this could be a weekend of activities.

“The goals of the camp are for our kids to develop self-confidence and self-esteem in an enjoyable and positive 'can-do' setting. It means so much to our children and their families to know that people are thinking of them and sending their love and support.

“On behalf of everyone here, thank you.” 

Kevin Kay, Wolves head of ancillary sales, added: “Just a few months into 2021 and already we have donated £450 to Birmingham Children’s Hospital, so hopefully we can continue to support this fantastic charity.”
