Climbing new heights for Birmingham Children's Hospital

Solihull Editorial 10th Apr, 2023   0

A SOLIHULL banking and mortgage technology firm raised more than £8,000 for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

Staff at Phoebus climbed Mount Snowdon and completed a Wolfrun challenge as well as hosting other events to raise funds for its chosen charity of 2022.

The company has been chosen by the charity as one of its 100 Heroes for 2023 and will be commemorated with a special, personalised red balloon at the front of the hospital for 12 months and an invitation to a celebratory afternoon tea party.

Last year staff set up a partnership with Make Good Grow, an charity matching service that brings together volunteers to help good causes.




One of the projects Phoebus worked on via Make Good Grow was assisting the Mayday Trust which supported accommodation services for people experiencing facing homelessness or leaving care.

Phoebus colleagues used their digital skills to assist the Mayday Trust in creating and editing the podcast Conversations That Challenge.


Adam Oldfield, chief revenue officer at Phoebus, said: “Charity is at the heart of our company culture and colleagues are always generous with their fundraising efforts.

“But we also encourage volunteering and our partnership with Make Good Grow is a fantastic way to match the skills of our people with the needs of charities.”

This year staff will be hoping to raise £8,000 for The British Heart Foundation through various activities.
