EverythingBranded shows its love for Bodie Hodges Foundation
Everything Branded are partners and avid fundraisers for the Leicester based charity the Bodie Hodges Foundation that work throughout the East Midlands. Set up in 2012, the Bodie Hodges Foundation is a family run charity that supports families who have been bereaved of a child of any age and promote organ donation.
They aim to…
· Provide free respite for families from the East Midlands bereaved of a child of any age
· Create a relaxing and safe environment that allows time for peace and reflection
· Provide an opportunity to spend valuable time with siblings and aid their grieving
· Promote the organ donor register
· Develop a wider understanding of the importance of organ donation
In October 2016 Bodie’s Boathouse was officially opened. Bodie’s Boathouse is a luxury, lakeside 3- bedroom retreat at Tallington Lakes in Lincolnshire.
“As a foundation, we want to be able to provide a safe and luxurious place that families can retreat to and spend time together after the death of their child. We consider Bodie’s Boathouse as being very important for siblings who are dealing with their own grief, as well as watching their parents and loved ones grieve too. Everyone grieves differently and in their own way and so we have designed Bodie’s Boathouse to be a tranquil retreat and a place to explore and make memories.” -Nick, Bodie’s Dad and Founder
Inspired and moved by the Bodie Hodges Foundation, our EverythingBranded team are proudly contributing anyway they can towards it, be it through an in-office money collection currently working its way around the office, or through the opportunity to sign up for blood and organ donation. We’ve already posted off the first batch of Give Blood Forms and are currently collecting for the second. EverythingBranded partnered Bodie Hodges Foundation June 2017, donating promotional merchandise to the charity for awareness and fundraising material.
Paul Rowlett, Managing Director at EverythingBranded.co.uk expressed “They do some truly fantastic work in the area and we’re proud to be supporting such a worthy cause. We believe in the good that organ donation can do for people of all ages. Bodie’s donation gave life to four babies who may not have survived otherwise.”
Paul Taylor, from the Bodie Hodges Foundation, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Everything Branded. We know that we can benefit from their expertise and I was really impressed with the work they do and the products they offer. Paul’s enthusiasm was infectious and you clearly have some exciting times ahead. Their support is really appreciated and we’re looking forward to working with them in the future.”
