Brindleyplace is giving back in 2017 with the announcement of four new charity partners, a first in the estate’s history. All Birmingham based charities, the funds raised at Brindleyplace this year will go towards local people and causes and Cure Leukaemia is thrilled to be supported through the Dragonboat race for a third successive year!
Following dozens of applications from both regional and national charities, Birmingham St. Mary’s Hospice, Cure Leukaemia, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and NICE were chosen as Brindleyplace charity partners for 2017.
Sam Lawrence, Director of Property Management for Brindleyplace, said: “We’re proud to be supporting four great Birmingham charities and look forward to working with them over the next twelve months. Attracting more and more people each year, our free events represent a great opportunity for each charity to raise valuable funds and make a real difference to the lives of local people.
“The creativity and commitment shown throughout the application process by everyone involved was truly inspiring and, as well as being partnered with one of our established main events, each charity will have a chance to host their own event on the estate. With a full calendar of activity ahead of us, we hope the Brindleyplace community and the general public will join in the fun and help back these fantastic causes.”
As mentioned, the annual Dragonboat Race, sponsored by Deutsche Bank, will again raise funds for Cure Leukaemia in their bid to raise a record £100,000, while NICE will partner the outdoor Film Festival, Birmingham Children’s Hospital will benefit from fundraising at this year’s Chilli Festival and activity at the newest addition to the event calendar, Chocival, will support Birmingham St. Mary’s Hospice.
