Birmingham’s Bullring Bees Set to Raise Money For the NHS Foundation Trust

Iconic Birmingham retail destination, Bullring & Grand Central, has announced that it will be raising money for charity with the sale of honey produced by the centre’s bees.

Last year, the centre announced that it had teamed up with local beekeeper, Tim Vivian from Bee9 Honey, to become home to over 50,000 bees in a beehive located on the roof of the East side of the mall. The bees have now produced 60 jars of honey that the centre will sell to staff and retailers at Bullring & Grand Central to raise money for charity.

The jars will be sold at £7 each, with £5 from each jar going to Birmingham Women’s and Children’s NHS Foundation Trust and the remaining £2 to Bees Abroad, a charity that provides education and technical advice about beekeeping to people living in poverty across the world in order for them to make an income from selling honey. 

The centre has also worked with patients at Birmingham Children’s Hospital to design the labels for the honey jars. 

Stephanie Lacey, General Manager at Bullring & Grand Central, commented: “We’re delighted to be raising money for these wonderful charities through the honey that has been produced by our bees. Both do such fantastic work so it’s great to be able to support with their fundraising efforts.

“Yesterday was World Environment Day (5th June) so it’s brilliant to mark this with the sale of our Bullring Honey. Urban beekeeping has many benefits including a boost to pollination as well as improving sustainability, food security and biodiversity in cities. We hope over the coming months to increase the number of hives at the centre so we’re able to produce even more honey.”
