Rotec Hydraulics Ltd supports The Grand Appeal’s campaign to bring Christmas joy to critically ill children

One thing no-one has on their Santa wish list is spending Christmas in hospital. Unfortunately, the reality is that many children and families will have to spend time away from home, to receive vital care.

Somerset Chamber member, Rotec Hydraulics Ltd is proud to announce they will be supporting Wallace and Gromit’s Grand Appeal, the official Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, this Festive season.

They have donated towards the charity’s Christmas ‘Shine Bright’ campaign, which will light up the iconic Bristol Children’s Hospital building throughout December. By donating, they hope to spread festive cheer in the community, whilst raising funds that will benefit sick children and their families.

Rotec is supporting the largest of the light displays – a festive Gromit, which will be projected onto the side of the hospital throughout the Christmas period.

Rotec’s Managing Director, Paul Prouse, said: “It has been a pleasure to support Bristol Children’s Hospital’s charity for 8 years now. The hospital team go over and above to support and care for children and their families every year.

“They have shown remarkable dedication particularly throughout the pandemic, providing life-saving treatment and support to children and families across the South West and even nationally. We are proud to be supporting this worthwhile cause once again in 2021.”

Bristol Children’s Hospital cares for over 100,000 babies, children and young adults from across the South West annually and supports patients with rare genetic disorders, neurological conditions, congenital heart disease, traumatic injuries, cancer and kidney disease.

Everyone can get involved with the campaign by spreading cheer in their community and decorating their house, window or garden. For more information about the ‘Shine Bright’ campaign, including how to get involved visit the website or donate online at
