University of Birmingham Medical Society

Friends of BCH

Welcome to Friends of BCH!smiley


Who are we?

Friends of BCH is a charity that works with the Birmingham Children’s Hospital to help the young patients feel as comfortable as possible during their stay at the hospital. We hope to achieve this goal by providing dedicated volunteers to the hospital, getting involved with BCH Charity events and organising our own exciting fundraisers here at the university!



What did we do last year?

The 2019-20 academic year has been extremely rewarding for all of us here at FoBCH. We have recruited a record number of new volunteers, both medics and non-medics through our ‘Volunteer evening talks’ that were held over the course of the year. 


Apart from our new recruits, we are very happy to announce we have raised over £500 this year for BCH! Our main event was a Christmas themed movie night in semester one. With a small fee for entry and some yummy snacks, we had a cozy night watching the Christmas classic ‘Love Actually’. It was a massive success! We also hosted bake sales and had stalls selling BCH merchandise at a variety of other events.
