“Dear Donna, Nick and the Bodie Team,

As we come to the end of a fantastic year of working together, we wanted to write to you and say how amazing its been for us having you as our Charity of the Year 2019.

Not only do you blow us away with the work that you do to promote organ donation and assist in the bereavement process for parents and families who have lost a child, you are all also incredible to work with, are professional in every way and organise some amazing events to raise money for the Charity.

As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility it has been extremely important for us to partner with a local Charity and having worked with The Bodie Hodges Foundation for the past several years it was a real no-brainer to choose The Bodie Hodges foundation as our Charity of the Year.

We truly hope that the money you have saved on the equipment we have supplied for your events and of course the money Tara raised by taking part in the Great North Run goes a long way towards the running of the Boathouse and the employment of your bereavement counsellor and the memory boxes. We look forward to a long lasting relationship between B Audio Visual and The Bodie Hodges Foundation”.
