The money raised on the evening will go towards funding a Renal Arts Co-ordinator. The Artist works with patients on Renal Dialysis to give a number of benefits. Art sessions can include poetry, photography, calligraphy, animation, painting and drawing. Art has many benefits for these patients who have to go on Dialysis 3 to 4 times per week for up to 4 hours at a time.

Maggie Bulman Corporate Fundraiser said “We are very grateful to the staff at Browns for their amazing support of York Teaching Hospital Charity and we know the money raised for this cause will make a big difference to Renal patients at York Hospital. We are so thrilled to have the continued support from Browns”.


The team presented a cheque for £500.00 to Harry and Lara from BBC Look North (Yorkshire) for BBC Children in Need outside Browns York!
