ERA Charity


ERA has chosen Birmingham Children's Hospital as its nominated charity for 2017. Birmingham Children’s Hospital is a leading UK specialist paediatric centre, offering expert care to over 90,000 children and young people from across the country every year. Delivering some of the most advanced treatments, complex surgical procedures and cutting edge research and development, the hospital treats one in five children from Birmingham and one in eight from the wider West Midlands. 


Every patient and family at Birmingham Children’s Hospital will have been touched by the hospital’s charity in some way. As a result it continually strives to do more for the sick kids in its care, whether that’s a newly refurbished playroom or ward, a state-of-the-art piece of equipment or even a toy at Christmas. But the impact of fundraising on patient experience is much more than purely financial – it makes a real difference to the services it provides to children and their families during difficult times. 


Commenting on the decision to nominate Birmingham Children's Hospital as its chosen charity for 2017, ERA CEO Darren Waters says: “we really wanted to harness the power of our teams across the UK and come together to support one very worthwhile charity – we asked employees to vote from a selection of charities and Birmingham Children's Hospital was the unanimous choice.”

ERA supports a charity voted for by our employees every year and in 2016 we were thrilled to raise £14,185.50 for Cancer Research UK. Cancer Research UK is the world's leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Their groundbreaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has seen UK survival rates double in the last 40 years. 

The Sick Childrens Trust

In 2015 ERA chose to support The Sick Children’s Trust and we again raised over £14,000 in support families with seriously ill children in hospital. The charity, set up over 30 years ago, provides free ‘Home from Home’ accommodation, as well as emotional and practical support, at leading children’s hospitals throughout the UK with the clear aim of keeping families together while children undergo lifesaving treatment. The Sick Children’s Trust has ten ‘Homes from Home’ and supports around 3,500 families every year. Its houses help relieve some of the practical and emotional strains of having a sick child in hospital, far from home.
