Our wonderful corporate partner BiBADO, the award winning company who make parents lives easier through their innovative, problem solving weaning products, have hit a huge milestone, raising over £50,000 for the Noah’s Ark Charity!
£1 from every order is donated to family related causes including the Noah’s Ark Charity, small international charities and personal causes, chosen by staff members.
The money raised by BiBADO has supported a wide range of areas funded by the Noah’s Ark Charity – from our neonatal appeal, Tiny Lives, to the funds raised for the redevelopment of the hospital’s Jungle ward. In addition, BiBADO have been great supporters of the play specialist team, who help children be children, despite the difficulties they are facing.
2020 saw extreme challenges for the charity as the pandemic hit and yet again BiBADO stepped up, funding iPads and tablets for children to keep in contact with their families when a one parent policy, which continues to this day, was put in place. The company have also provided financial support to our Sparkle fund, which brings a little joy to frequent and longer term patients through gifts, activities and birthday celebrations.
Rachel Wood, founder of BiBADO, said: “When we first set out to donate a proportion of our sales to Noah’s Ark, in my wildest dreams I didn’t think we would be able to achieve this! The money we have donated has been put to use helping families when they really need it the most. As a parent who has spent time in hospital with very young children, I know first-hand what a difference charities like Noah’s Ark make to the families they help.
“We are so grateful to the Noah’s Ark Charity and staff, who we know support so many needs for the hospital. From play specialists to equipment – to emotional support and food for parents. They do such a fantastic job and their work is so appreciated by a lot of our Welsh-based team, who have been thankful for the help with their own children.
“Right now being on the frontline, we truly want to thank them for all they do. Not only helping children through their treatment, but also supporting families as they cope with the additional impact of COVID-19. The play team are heroes to the children of Noah’s Ark, and they’re heroes to us – which is why we’re so immensely proud to support their work. Thank you to all our amazing customers. We thank you for all your support and the difference you have made to the children and families of Noah’s Ark.”
Lucy Jones, our fundraising development manager added: “We are so grateful for the support of BiBADO. Raising more than £50,000 over the past two years has been a fantastic achievement! It’s only been made possible because of the incredible BiBADO customers who donate to the cause every time an order is placed. The funds raised have contributed to a whole host of areas which the charity supports. Thank you so much for everything you
have done and continue to do. We can only
achieve so much because of you!”
