Bristol based sustainable food & beverages accessories company Smidge has donated 1,200 limited edition bottles to enhance Above & Beyond’s fundraising efforts.
The bottles will be used for the fundraising initiative ‘Challenge Against Cancer’. For those who are able to raise £150, and hopefully more, will receive a limited edition ‘Thank You’ Smidge Bottle.
Cancer is the leading cause of premature death in Bristol, where rates of premature death are significantly higher than for the rest of England. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, cancer has continued to affect the lives of thousands of people across Bristol and the demand for outstanding cancer services continues to increase.
Gemma Jenkins, Above & Beyond, corporate partnerships officer, said: “We want to say a big thank you to everyone at Smidge for donating these amazing water bottles. If you want to get one of the limited-edition designs, visit the Above & Beyond website to find out more about our Bristol Against Cancer challenge events.”
Rob Jones, Smidge, managing director, said: “We are delighted to support Above & Beyond’s fundraising efforts. Unfortunately, we have all been touched by cancer at some point in our lives, so we are thrilled to be part of this campaign raising needed funds for Bristol Hospitals fighting against cancer.”
Above & Beyond is the official charity for Bristol city centre hospitals. With the support of fund raising they create safe, modern and friendly environments that reduce anxiety and offer calm spaces for all. They ensure Bristol’s hospitals have world-class facilities and the very best equipment for treating patients. Each year they aim to raise £3 million to make real difference.
