Qualsys support The Children's Hospital Charity snowflakes

Posted by Emily Hill on Thu, Oct 26, 2017

Whether it's the clocks going back next week, the drop in temperature or Bonfire Night approaching, summer is definitely long gone. 

But one thing that we do look forward to this time of year is sponsoring the Children's Hospital Charity's snowflake display which decorates the front of the hospital building. 

The annual display is much anticipated by patients, staff and the public, as hundreds of lights adorn the entire hospital, each with a ‘gift tag’ attached displaying the name of a local sponsor.

The charity is very important for Qualsys as many of our employees have children who have used the hospital's services at some point

Our donation will be going towards the "Make it Better" appeal. This was launched in 2012 to help raise money to build new wards and create the best possible environment for children to get better more quickly. 

Tchad Western is Corporate Fundraiser at the Children's Hospital Charity.  He said: "This year our light switch-on will be the biggest yet, with a fun evening being planned! We'll also be celebrating the new wing bedrooms being open as well as seeing the start of the first school’s snowflake sponsorships. So it'll be a great evening."

What to do now 

The hospital will switch on its light display on 30 November.

Please feel free to join us at the event!
