RbD partners with Birmingham Children's Hospital

RbD is celebrating its 21st year and has marked this significant anniversary by supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital as a charity partner. The team wanted to take an active role in the local community and after being inspired through their involvement in ‘Op Teddy bear’ earlier this year, felt that the city centre based charity would be a fantastic one to support.

The team are planning a number of fundraising events throughout the year, including pledging a number of individual challenges, the first of which kicks off in less than 2 weeks with a marathon swim!

Our Marketing Exec – Bridget – is going to swim 21 miles (the distance from England to France across the channel) from September 14th-Septmember 20th. If you think splitting the distance over 7 days makes the challenge easy, let us clarify how this will work…

Bridget will swim 100 lengths before and 100 lengths after work for 5 days & 200 lengths p/day at the weekend. In total she will swim 1,400 lengths over the 7 day period. The reason she chose 21 miles was to mark RbD’s 21st year!

Training is well underway and whilst she feels very motivated to support this incredible charity – she needs your support!
