Birmingham Hippodrome celebrates Remember A Charity Week

Birmingham Hippodrome will celebrate ‘Remember A Charity Week’ by joining the world’s first charity-powered search engine.

This week, the theatre joins forces with 200 other charities up and down the UK to launch 'Human'; the world’s first charity-powered search engine.

The activity is part of 'Remember A Charity' week, which runs between 10th - 16th September. The event sees hundreds of charities come together to encourage people to leave charitable gifts in will's and, by doing so, pass on something wonderful to the next generation.

Birmingham Hippodrome will be joining this unique platform, which enables charities across the nation to post a series of videos to help answer their biggest question, and how the public can help by leaving a gift in their Will. You will be able to explore a range of video responses, including answers from Chief Executive and Artistic Director, Fiona Allan. These videos will be released on social media and will be accessible through the 'Human' search engine on the Remember a Charity website. Rachael Magson, Head of Fundraising at Birmingham Hippodrome said:

“We are thrilled to be taking part in Remember a Charity week and the Human search engine. By considering leaving a legacy gift to Birmingham Hippodrome you can ensure that this wonderful regional theatre is here for decades to come, reaching those in our local communities with the least access to arts and culture”

Gifts left to charity in Wills are a crucial source of the Hippodrome's income and help fund key services and projects, including future artistic commissions, work in schools and communities and preserving our historic auditorium and developing the theatre’s facilities for future generations. Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, added:

“Every day people use Google to find the answers to their questions, but it’s real people and charities we turn to when we want answers to life’s biggest challenges. 

“This campaign has been designed to showcase just how vital charities are in responding to many of the world’s biggest problems and how gifts in wills can help combat those issues and we’re delighted that Birmingham Hippodrome is taking part. We hope it will encourage the public to think about their deepest concerns for the world we live in and to consider leaving a gift in their will.”
