Azets has announced a new partnership with Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity as it pledges to raise £25,000 in the next 12 months.
The firm recently launched a campaign called “Strive for £25k”, which aims to raise enough money to cover the cost of a full-time peer support worker for Forward Thinking Birmingham.
Fundraising efforts will include charity events run by Azets, involvement in events run by the hospital charities, and volunteering opportunities across the firm’s Midlands offices.
As part of its contribution, Azets employees will also provide mentorship for children and young people requiring professional support, including CV reviews and work experience.
Helen Miles, corporate fundraising manager, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said: “We believe there’s always more we can do for our patients and that’s why we’re so grateful for the kindness, generosity and hard work of our supporters like Azets.
“Raising these funds for our charity means that we are able to do more and helps take us closer to achieving our vision.”
Paul Clifford, regional CEO with Azets, said: “We are proud to partner with Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust in support of such an important initiative for children and young people after an unprecedented time of hardship.
“By launching ‘Strive for £25k’, we have set ourselves a minimum goal to help the trust recruit a full-time peer support worker and continue its inspirational work across the region.”
