Yes, you read that correctly. Here at OVG we are hiring out our Directors to the highest bidder in an effort to raise £1,000 for Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity.
Our Managing Directors Paul and Justin Yates will be joined by OVG’s other four Directors as we hire out our ‘specialist’ services to six lucky bidders across Manchester. If you fancy a chauffeur for the day, a dance class for your office with a Welsh Dance Champ or an indoor office beach party complete with cocktails, you’re definitely in luck.
Across June, the Directors will be encouraging companies to bid against each other to win a money-can’t-buy experience. All proceeds will go to RMCH Charity’s Many Hands Campaign to help reach their target of £50,000 towards the charity’s Helipad Appeal.
Our Communications Director Olwen Shaw said, ‘We’re delighted (if not a little nervous) to be part of such a fun idea to support the charity’s Helipad Appeal. It was a whole team effort to come up with the Hire Help 4 Humphrey idea, and we’re hoping that businesses right across Manchester show their support and get bidding!’
Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital is one of the biggest and busiest children’s hospitals in the country, providing highly specialised treatment to children of the North West and beyond. Having a 24-hour-access, onsite helipad will, put simply, help save more lives. The first 60 minutes following a major trauma or severe injury is known as the ‘Golden Hour’. Fast access to specialist treatment therefore is vital to give patients the best chance possible.
Up for grabs are:
Paul Yates – Personal Assistant
Justin Yates – Personal Chauffeur
Neil Walker – Bespoke Digital Training Session
Sara Bryan – Office Dance Masterclass
Simon Taylor – Produce a Bespoke Promotional Video for your Business
Olwen Shaw – Office Beach Party & Cocktails
Whether companies want to place a bid or simply donate to the Many Hands Campaign, both options can be found on OVG’s specially-designed bidding page.
Let’s be honest, when are you going to get a more entertaining opportunity to (humiliate the OVG Directors) raise money for a good cause?
