The Oscars 2017 - Web Banners - 950x350


The nominations for the 2017 OSCARS are now Closed.

We are pleased to announce that the chosen charity for this year’s Oscars, is the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. For over 150 years the Birmingham Children’s Hospital has done so much to serve children suffering from some of the most challenging medical conditions. The charityexists to make things better for these children, their families and the staff who treat them, providing funding for important equipment, pioneering research and all the important extras that make the hospital so special.

The Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity raises funds for those projects and services which fall outside the remit of the NHS. Thanks to the support of fundraisers like us, the hospital can provide a level of patient care beyond what NHS funding alone can deliver. Charitable donations go straight to wherever the hospital needs it most. So please give generously to the Oscars raffle, in support of this important cause. Tickets can be purchased via your local Red Carpet ambassador before the event and then again on the night of the Oscars themselves.

(In further support of the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, we will also be taking part in an exciting initiative over the summer. Following on from the success of the Big Hoot 2016, this year the BCH charity and “Wild in Art” are teaming up to present The Big Sleuth. (Sleuth being a collective noun for a group of bears!) Look out for our Big Sleuth furry friends, which will arrive at the Bramall Music Building and at the University of Birmingham day nurseries, in July; and will then be auctioned off to raise valuable funds for the charity.)

About the OSCARS

Each year, the University of Birmingham, Hospitality and Accommodation Services (HAS) recognises and rewards staff achievement and customer service at our annual OSCARS night.

The purpose of the OSCARS is to recognise the individual or collective efforts of our staff that go the extra mile to ensure our customers needs and expectations are not only met, but often exceeded. These are the individuals and teams that ensure that HAS lives up to its vision of providing excellent services for our community.

More importantly, this is your chance to recognise and nominate staff and colleagues you feel have consistently tried harder to do more than is expected to get a job done.
