Looking for some Olympic fun in the office? With the London Olympics 2012 only a mere sprint away why not try Birmingham Children’s Hospital fantastically hilarious Office Olympics?
You and your colleagues can join together to hold an Olympics celebration without even leaving the comfort of your office.
Simply visit the hospital’s website www.bch.org.uk to get hold of your very own ‘Office Olympic Sports Kit’, which includes Office Olympic Games you can play and all you need to make your own bunting and Olympic torch.
The sports kit also contains everything that you need to help raise vital funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital’s Children’s Cancer Centre Appeal.
Carrie, Jenifer and Lorraine (pictured) from the Kids Intensive Care and Support Unit at Birmingham Children’s Hospital had a fantastic time taking part in their Office Olympics. Carrie said, ‘It was so simple to organise but we had such a laugh. Please join us in raising funds for a brilliant cause.’
Helen Bell from the fundraising team says:
“The current cancer unit is in desperate need of updating as it is dull and cramped but with your help we can create a spacious, light and fit for purpose ward. Patients with cancer face long stays in hospital and we want them to be treated in a more relaxing and comfortable environment.”
Visit www.bch.org.uk to join in the fun.
