In recent years, the AIM Awards Dinner has held a Charity Collection, principally for the benefit of child-focused charities. To all those who have made donations, thank you so much for your generosity – the charities concerned are all extremely grateful.
We are delighted to announce that a total of £11,357 was raised at the AIM Awards 2019 which was shared equally between its supported charities, BCCS and Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity.
One in every ten children has a diagnosable mental health disorder – that’s probably three in every classroom. A recent survey conducted also found 22% of girls and 9% of boys were self-harming.
These frightening statistics demonstrate just how important it is to look after children’s mental health. bccs is a children’s charity covering East London and Essex, with the primary focus of providing counselling for children and young adults whose wellbeing, mental or emotional health could be at risk. From bereavement to bullying, anxiety to abuse, bccs is there to provide early intervention.
bccs does not receive any national or local statutory funding of any kind; therefore, it fully relies on raising funds with the unstinting help of supporters, benefactors and charity collections.
Every day brings new challenges at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH).
Every day, more than 600 children and young people from across the UK arrive. Every day, doctors and nurses battle the most complex illnesses.
This extraordinary hospital has always depended on charitable support to give seriously ill children the best chance to fulfil their potential.
Every day is a chance for you to make a difference. Without you, we can’t help fund ground-breaking research, advanced medical equipment or child and family support services.
A better future for seriously ill children starts here, so please donate as generously as you possibly can.
