Birmingham Hippodrome celebrates ‘Remember A Charity Week’ by joining the world’s first charity-powered search engine

This week Birmingham Hippodrome is joining forces with 200 other charities up and down the UK to launch Human – the world’s first charity-powered search engine.

The activity is part of Remember A Charity Week, 10-16 September, which sees hundreds of charities come together to encourage people to leave charitable gifts in Wills and, by doing so, pass on something wonderful to the next generation.

Birmingham Hippodrome will be joining this unique platform, which enables charities across the nation to post a series of videos to help answer their biggest question, and how the public can help by leaving a gift in their Will.

Birmingham Hippodrome will be exploring the question: ‘How do we create free arts opportunities for all?

You will be able to explore a range of video responses, including answers from our Chief Executive and Artistic Director Fiona Allan, legacy supporters and theatre volunteers. These videos will be released on social media and will be accessible through Human search engine on the Remember a Charity website.

Gifts left to charity in Wills are a crucial source of our income and help fund key services and Hippodrome Projects, including future artistic commissions, work in schools and communities and preserving our historic auditorium and developing the theatre’s facilities for future generations.

Rachael Magson, Head of Fundraising at Birmingham Hippodrome commented: “We are thrilled to be taking part in Remember a Charity week and the Human search engine.  By considering leaving a legacy gift to Birmingham Hippodrome you can ensure that this wonderful regional theatre is here for decades to come, reaching those in our local communities with the least access to arts and culture”

Rob Cope, Director of Remember A Charity, says: “Every day people use Google to find the answers to their questions, but it’s real people and charities we turn to when we want answers to life’s biggest challenges.

“This campaign has been designed to showcase just how vital charities are in responding to many of the world’s biggest problems and how gifts in wills can help combat those issues and we’re delighted that Birmingham Hippodrome is taking part. We hope it will encourage the public to think about their deepest concerns for the world we live in and to consider leaving a gift in their will.”
