A&B raises funds for Bristol’s hospitals and help to support 800,000 patients every year and more than 9,000 NHS staff working there.

Kiddimoto founder, Simon Booth, said: “We are so pleased to be working with A&B as they do some incredible things for the hospitals in Bristol.”

A&B’s fundraising officer Catherine Harris said: “It is thanks to the wonderful support of local businesses such as Kiddimoto that we are able to fund these projects above and beyond what the NHS can afford.”

A&B and Kiddimoto are also running a competition which could see your child’s helmet design come to life. To enter, click here.
