Golfers raise funds for Birmingham Children's Hospital's iMRI fund

Solihull Editorial 28th Sep, 2023   0

GOLFERS raised an amazing £2,500 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s iMRI Fund.

Belmont Healthcare hosted a Corporate Golf Day held at Shirley Golf Club where teams went head to head on the green in aid of charity.

And thanks to their putting skills the care company has earned a red balloon on the hospital’s ‘walk of fame’ entrance – a symbol of the charity and a gesture of their deep appreciation.

Andrea Vinten, head of communications at Belmont Healthcare, expressed profound connection to the cause, saying, We are incredibly humbled to be able to support this charity.

“We were fortunate to receive a tour of the hospital.

“It was an unforgettable journey – one filled with heart-warming moments of hope and some heart-wrenching realities.”

The iMRI Fundraising Appeal aims to raise £1.5million for a game-changing mobile MRI unit which is said to revolutionise the way children undergo brain surgery at the hospital.

Currently, during some procedures, children and medical teams have the daunting task of moving between floors to access the fixed MRI scanner.

But the mobile MRI unit will drastically shorten surgery times and provide a smoother experience for all involved.

Dearbhla Craddock, senior corporate fundraising officer at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, said: “We can’t thank Belmont Healthcare enough.

“Guiding them through our hospital was a joy. Their generous donation will undoubtedly make a significant difference in the lives of countless children.”
