A Sutton Coldfield Chamber member has been thanked by University Hospitals Birmingham for raising more than £20,000 for its charity through a popular colouring-in book.
The Lockdown Legends book, designed by Sabina Gran in collaboration with PLOTT Creative, proved to be a big hit during the first national lockdown.
With orders surpassing 1,400 in a single weekend, the book raised more than £20,000 for the UHB Charity.
As well as providing health and wellbeing support for staff, money raised was used to fund iPads, so that patients could speak to loved ones at home.
UHB expressed their gratitude to PLOTT for the initiative.
Charlotte Schofield, director of fundraising at UHB, said: “Thanks to this amazing idea, we have been able to support frontline staff and patients through one of the hardest times of their life.
“We cannot thank Anna Plotnek and her team enough - it made an enormous difference.”
Anna Plotnek, PLOTT Creative’s managing director, said: “We are really touched to hear about the difference Lockdown Legends has made.
“At such a difficult time for everyone, we are proud to have been able to support NHS staff and bring families closer together.”
The final few copies of Lockdown Legends colouring books remain on sale and every penny raised goes to University Hospitals Birmingham Charity’s NHS ‘Superheroes Fund’.
