Hilton Hotel donates £500 to BIM from Christmas Cracker Giveaway
A massive thankyou to the Hilton hotel for the donation of £500 from their Christmas cracker giveaway!
The Sunday Life and Hilton Northern Ireland team up every year with the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People to give away £10,000 to children’s charities. This year Brain Injury Matters were one of fifty charities in Northern Ireland that applied. Brain Injury Matters were one of the 6 finalists that were lucky enough to receive monies from this fund.
Since 2004, the DM Thomas Foundation for Young People has awarded over £330K in Northern Ireland. Outdoor learning, arts and crafts materials, travel costs, sports equipment, specialist and crisis counselling, therapy and cancer care, refurbishments and resource packs have all be funded through the Giveaway, enabling more than 6,400 young people to benefit.
A massive thank you to the Hilton Hotel for inviting us along to the Awards Ceremony today and presenting us with the cheque for £500.
