Bedfont® Scientific films Mannequin Challenge for Children in Need

Local medical device manufacturer, Bedfont® Scientific, accepts the Mannequin Challenge to help raise money for Children in Need.

The Mannequin Challenge is a concept which has gone viral on social media. The idea is that people are filmed while they hold a pose, like mannequins. Local medical device manufacturer, Bedfont® Scientific, have decided to join the hype but with one twist; if their video gets 10,000 shares on Facebook, they will donate £1,000 to Children in Need which is taking place tonight.

Children in Need, established in 1980, is the BBC’s UK charity which has raised over £600 million for disabled children and young people in the UK.

Jason Smith, Managing Director, says,

“Whilst all good fun to plan and film the mannequin challenge, we do hope that by making this video we can help spread the word about the BBC’s good work through the Children in Need charity. Sometimes it’s good to pause and take stock of how lucky we are and that there are children out there who need our help; with social media playing such a huge part in life these days, we hope that our video will help people realise this. Please do like and share our video which can be found on our Facebook page, @Bedfontltd. We have pledged to give £1,000 to Children in Need if we can reach over 10,000 likes before midnight!”
