31 Media, organisers of The European Software Testing Awards, is really proud to have worked with some great charities to make a positive difference over the years. Supporting and donating to good causes, through our events, is extremely important for us, as it creates increased awareness and exposure for the charitable efforts of many organisations.
In 2013, we supported Great Ormond Street Hospital Charity and raised an amazing £3,000. This donation went towards the construction of a single bedroom with en-suite for the Surgery Centre, which will offer more dignity and privacy for patients and their families, helping to make their stay with us as stress-free as possible.
Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the top five pediatric research hospitals in the world. Every year, it has over 220,000 patient visits from children all over the UK and abroad, who are suffering from the most complex, life-threatening conditions. The Charity exists to assist the hospital in delivering world-class care for its young patients and their families and to pioneer new treatments and cures for childhood illness
We ran a prize-draw at The European Software Testing Awards ceremony, which saw one lucky guest win a two-night getaway to central Paris for two people. This included return travel with Eurostar, accommodation and breakfast at the luxurious, five-star Renaissance Paris Le Parc Trocadero Hotel, which is a stone’s throw away from the iconic Eiffel Tower.
