• Charity of the Year 2019
    Bodie Hodges Foundation

Charity of the year – 2019 !!!

B Audio Visual are delighted to announce that our Charity of the Year for 2019 is……    THE BODIE HODGES FOUNDATION

This amazing charity was founded in 2012 by Nick Hodges following the death of his 10month old son, Bodie.  Bodie saved four other children’s life’s by being an organ donor and The Bodie Hodges Foundation was devised as a way to support families who have been bereaved of a child of any age and to promote organ donation.

Bodies Boathouse 

Nick and his family were fortunate enough to be gifted some time away in a holiday home and it was from this retreat that they realised as a foundation that they wanted to be able to provide a safe and luxurious place that families can spend time together after the death of a child.

In October 2016 Bodies Boathouse was officially opened, the boathouse is a luxurious 3 bedroom retreat at Tallington Lakes in Lincolnshire.  This week Jon and Tara from B Audio Visual were fortunate enough to be invited to view the Boathouse personally to see where the fundraising for the Bodie Hodges Foundation goes towards.

It was an extremely humbling experience seeing just where bereaved families can go, the Boathouse is situated on an incredibly peaceful and tranquil lake with every luxury thought of including an amazing outdoor ‘Pod’ complete with cosy blankets, coffee machine and even a voucher for a meal at the onsite restaurant, The Bodie Hodges Foundation really have thought of everything.

Fundraising 

Hearing about the number of families already booked to go there in 2019 and how the boathouse costs hundreds of pounds for each family to go, the fundraising efforts that the Bodie Hodges Foundation do each year are just vital to keep such an amazing experience going and to also go towards the Foundations long term goal of providing a specialist counsellor and who knows even one day in the future perhaps there will be Bodies Boathouse 2!

How will B Audio Visual be helping?

Having worked with The Bodie Hodges Foundation for the past 6 years we will be offering our Audio Visual and Décor services for free for an entire year ensuring that every penny usually allocated for the production of their events stays in the fundraising pot and not only will we be working our usual magic we will be going well over and above on all production and event décor aspects.

The first fundraising event will take place on Thursday 28th March 2019 at the Leicester Tigers Rugby Ground with special guests Martin Johnson and Darren Farley.

Testimonials

  • B-Audio Visual have been supplying audio visual equipment to Leicester Tigers for over 25 years. I have personally been involved for the last 17 years on the events side of the business and have always had a good working relationship with their team. In addition to the general conference business that B-Audio visual support, we hold two end of year award dinners, one for our sponsors and one for our supporters, where B-Audio visual manage the AV side of the night.
    This year we have an additional commercial dinner which again we will bring B-Audio visual on board.

  • Without exception, the feedback we have had is that it was the best event yet. We threw a number of extra challenges at you and the team this year which you responded to calmly and without issue.
    There were many, many things that could have gone wrong with an event that becomes more complex each year and the important thing is that we can have absolute confidence that should something happen, it will be dealt with and resolved quickly and without fuss and your team give us that confidence.

  • I just want to officially thank you so much for making the Remembrance event at the NMA the best ever. Your guys on the day were brilliant, please pass on our thanks and gratitude in helping to make the event very special.
    The event was a massive success and I have received many messages from people saying how much they enjoyed the service.
    What we did this year was very successful and we hope to repeat it again next year.

  • Thank you so much for your help and support with the event last week. As you know it was a new client for us so we were keen to get it right!! The client was thrilled with all aspects of the service received, and your company really helped to elevate the image and professionalism of their event which is fantastic news!
    We are hopeful that we will be offered the opportunity to work with the client again next year so fingers crossed you will be part of all of that!

  • I cannot fault the fabulous customer service I receive from your organisation. I organise some very large events on a bi-monthly basis and one thing I do not have to worry about is AV and IT. The Technician (and I have to pay special thanks to ‘Jono’) is superb and we ask for him personally due to his knowledge and unflappable nature. I would also like to thank ‘Janine’ in the office – always extremely helpful.

  • I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you and your team for the work and efforts you put in last week at the Belfry.
    As per usual you were fantastic and provided a fabulous set both for the conference and gala dinner.
    I also wanted to say a big thank you to your team for helping with setting out the breakout rooms as the Belfry split down the room!
    I look forward to working with you again in the future 
    Speak soon!
