We're excited to announce that we've been shortlisted in the Brand Development category at the Third Sector Awards.

You might remember back in 2020 we changed our identity following the NHS hospital trusts in Bristol and Weston-Super-Mare merging to become University Hospitals Bristol and Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW).

Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity: Hard to ignore and difficult to forget

It was only natural that our hospital charities also joined forces, and from October 2021, Above & Beyond became Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity – a new identity that was hard to ignore and difficult to forget. 

Bristol & Weston Hospitals Charity worked with the Bristol-based design agency Mr B & Friends on the bold and vibrant new charity branding.

The response to our revolutionary rebrand has been extremely positive and we’ve seen an increase in donations, social media followers and partnerships meaning we can go even further in doing great things for our ten hospitals. 100% of charity staff now find it easier to explain or pitch the charity to supporters and networks. 

The winners will be announced Friday 22nd September so stay tuned (and keep your fingers crossed).
