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.
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.
