A Dragon’s Den success story has committed to working alongside a children’s charity.
Cheddar-based company Kiddimoto has partnered up with Above & Beyond (A&B) to help raise funds for the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children.
The fundraiser will focus on the company’s popular helmets, with £1 from every helmet sold being donated to the children’s hospital.
The company, which rose to prominence after featuring in the BBC One programme Dragon’s Den, hosted a play day in the hospital on Monday.
The event saw the young patients enjoy riding around on the brand’s balance bikes and scooters, which were then donated to the hospital.
