In early December, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity (RMCHC) sent Humphrey Bear to congratulate us at Kids Funtime Beds when we became an official partner with the charity after many months of supporting it with various fundraising ideas. By matching pound for pound kind donations made by our customers during the purchase of their beds raised £120 for the charity in the months leading up to Christmas. This year alone we already we have raised over £100 from checkout donations!

In the week before Christmas, Santa Claus and ten of his merry elves took charge of Kids Funtime Beds (the Kids Funtime Beds MD and employees), not only to ensure that Children who were getting their new Funtime Beds were receiving it in plenty of time for Christmas, but also to raise awareness of the hospital charity and its fundraising mission. Many poorly children would have been spending Christmas in hospital, and Santa and his elves, along with all the team at Kids Funtime Beds, were keen to help the charity raise the money needed to make the Royal Manchester Children’s hospital not only the largest but also the best children’s hospital in the whole of the United Kingdom.

During the same week, we pledged to match donations made to our fundraiser. We are very pleased to have raised £600 through this particular fundraising project, and we are always grateful for any donations that anyone wants to make to the charity at any time. Our customers always have the opportunity to donate to the charity when purchasing one of our Funtime beds, and some have been very generous in the amounts they have decided to give. We also donate £4 for each customer who posts a picture of their brand new Kids Funtime Bed on our Facebook or Twitter page, and we were very excited to see how many pictures of our kids beds, including our most popular playhouse and bunk beds, will appear on our social media pages as a result.

We are very pleased to be in partnership with the RMCHC and will be involved in many more fundraising activities for the charity in the future, and we look forward to Santa and his merry elves returning to help the team here at Kids Funtime Beds make Christmas 2016 the best Christmas possible for many more children…and their mums and dads too!
