bmibaby is hoping to hit new heights with its fundraising efforts for the BBC Children in Need Appeal this year.
bmibaby will donate £1 to the charity for every booking made online at bmibaby.com on Friday 17th November 2006. All routes are included in the offer so bmibaby are asking customers to book before midnight on Friday to support the Children in Need appeal.
bmibaby cabin crew are also working hard to collect donations of spare change and foreign currency onboard all of its flights from Birmingham, Nottingham East Midlands, Cardiff and Manchester airport to twenty European destinations.
As sponsors of the bmibaby Elite Ice Hockey League, bmibaby invited Pudsey Bear to ice hockey matches throughout the UK for fundraising events - including a mascot penalty shoot out on ice. The bmibaby team visited Sheffield, Coventry and Belfast with their big red buckets to raise lots of money for Children in Need.
Pudsey Bear will also be appearing at the Cardiff Blues Magners League game against Connacht on Saturday (18th November). bmibaby sponsors the Cardiff Blues rugby team and will be fundraising at the game with Pudsey Bear and the Cardiff Blues’ own mascot ‘Bruiser’.
David Hodge, marketing director, bmibaby, said:
“We’re delighted to be working with Children in Need again for the fourth consecutive year and are hoping to hit new heights with our fundraising efforts.
“We are hoping the £1 donation for every booking made online at bmibaby.com on Friday 17th November will generate even more money for the Children in Need appeal.”
