SP Services support the Star Appeal

The SP Services team voted to support Birmingham Children’s Hospital as our chosen charity for 2016. We took part in regular dress down days, larger fundraising events such as the big bandage and raffles throughout the year. We are delighted to announce that we raised a total of £264 for BCH during the course of the year which has since been matched by the company to bring our donation to a total of £528 towards the Star Appeal.

We decided to support the Star Appeal as it is funding truly extraordinary innovation within UK Medical practice. Once completed, the £3.65million raised by the Star Appeal will fund the UK’s first paediatric rare disease centre.

75% of rare diseases affect children and sadly 30% of these children affected die before their 5th birthday. BCH currently looks after 9,000 children with over 500 different rare or undiagnosed conditions and at present, their care is split between departments. This rare disease centre will allow for co-ordinated care, treatment and support to help brighten the lives of the children and their families.

Thank you to all of the staff at SP for your effors this year and to the company for matching our donations. We’re delighted to help such a worthwhile cause and look forward to visiting the unit upon completion.
