The Great Brunel Buskathon - Fundraising Total Revealed

 

Our month-long Buskathon, which took place throughout June, has raised over £6,000 to support healthcare services across our Trust.

The Buskathon called on performers to put on a show and busk to raise money for us.  Many concerts took place here in Southmead Hospital itself – and some performers were talented members of staff.

“Many patients and their families really appreciated the great atmosphere the performances created in the hospital.” Explains our Community Appeals Manager, Adrian Brown. 

“We had choirs, cabaret artists, bassoonists, a ukulele band, ballet dancers - and for four weeks we had concerts in our hospital on nearly every week day.

“This is the first year we’ve hosted such a large and varied event and we’d like to say a very heartfelt thank you to all the performers who donated their talents and time to raise funds for us.  Everyone who performed or who dropped coins in our buckets has helped make a big difference to people coming into our hospital or using our services.” Adds Adrian.

The money raised through the Buskathon will fund ground-breaking medical research, specialist equipment, and will help improve treatment facilities for patients.

The Buskathon will be back in December for ‘The Great Brunel Buskathon Christmas Special’. If you’d like to take part, please contact adrian.brown@southmeadhospitalcharity.org.uk
