Navartis Fundraiser 

As part of their corporate social responsibility, Navartis dedicate time, energy and resource towards raising funds for local and national charities and this time around they have committed to working with Bluebell Wood on a number of key events, kick-starting with the Octoberfest themed fundraiser. 
Bluebell Wood helps to provide care for children and young adults whose lives are sadly just too short, care is provided both in their own homes and at their hospice. 
“Working with local businesses, like Navartis is incredibly important to Bluebell Wood.  Over 90% of our fundraising for the hospice comes from people like Navartis, and people within the community, so without these partnerships we just wouldn’t be able to provide the first-class care that we do at the hospice.” – David Hall, Corporate Fundraiser


Having fun and raising money

On the day, employees at Navartis took part in a roulette spin lottery, a raffle and also paid to dress-up for the day, raising £988.70 for Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice.
David Hall, Corporate Fundraiser commented on the fundraiser - “So Navartis have some fun activities planned for today and I was greeted by a stein which was a first for me at Bluebell Wood.  The guys have got a lot going on today, they have paid to come dressed-up and there are some fabulous costumes, people have paid to have a go on the roulette to potentially win a prize and they also have a raffle, all with the aim to raise as much funds as possible.”
Every day, Bluebell Wood need to raise £11,000 to keep our doors open, Navartis, along with a strong community of other fundraisers are delighted to be able to contribute towards the great work they do and also help to raise awareness of the hospice.
