Kiddimoto partnership to support Bristol children’s hospital

Published on: 14th August 2017

Partnership with hospital charity Above & Beyond will raise awareness about the importance of wearing helmets.

On Tuesday 8th August, the Kiddimoto team visited the children’s hospital to host a play day, donate some of their award-winning balance bikes, scooters, ride-ons and helmets to the Play Centre and to launch a Design Your Own Helmet competition.

Children aged 5 to 15 are invited to design a brand new helmet which will be brought to life by the Kiddimoto design team and go into production in time for Christmas. For every one of these specially designed helmets sold worldwide, £5 will be donated to Above & Beyond.

The partnership will also see the Cheddar-based company donate £1 from every helmet sold from Kiddimoto’s official website to Above & Beyond to invest in projects that make a tangible difference to families from Bristol and across the South West. Funds generated from helmet sales will help support the 88,000 young patients treated at the children’s hospital each year.

Of the partnership with Above & Beyond, Simon Booth, founder of Kiddimoto, said: “We are so pleased to be working with Above & Beyond as they do some incredible work in the hospitals in Bristol. This partnership gives us an opportunity to give something back to the community and also make a real difference by highlighting the importance of bike safety. We’re really looking forward to seeing the helmet designs that the kids come up with and to supporting the Bristol Royal Hospital for Children via Above & Beyond.”

The Design Your Own Helmet competition deadline is Thursday 31st August. Entries are open to all children aged 5 to 15 and can be submitted to a collection box at the reception of Bristol children’s hospital, by post to Kiddimoto HQ or scanned and emailed to info@kiddimoto.co.uk.
