At the first ever Entrepreneurs Bootcamp held at Wembley Conference Centre for students of Andrew Reynolds Cash On Demand programme, attendees were given free tickets – but asked to make a suggested donation to the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.
The 2,500 seater venue quickly sold out as all tickets were snapped up. Live on stage, Andrew Reynolds presented Tim Johnson, Deputy Director Redevelopment Appeal at Great Ormond Street with a large cheque for over £325,176 – a huge sum raised from ticket sales by Andrew Reynolds Cash on Demand students.
Joined at the event Andrew Reynolds welcomed entrepreneurs from around the globe who had heard about the fundraising event and had offered to fly in to London form places as far afield as Australia, Canada, and the USA, specially to help with the event. In total, ten other small business gurus flew in to give presentations and talks to help students of Andrew Reynolds Cash On Demand course to get their own Home Based Business started from scratch – or to improve their existing businesses.
Tim Johnson of Great Ormond Street thanked the audience and said that this donation would help the charity to build a brand new multi-bed treatment room at the hospital and contribute greatly to its improvement plans.
Several students of Andrew Reynolds Cash On Demand course wrote in after the Bootcamp event with stories of how one of their own children or loved ones had benefitted personally from Great Ormond Street hospital.
Plans were then made to hold a second Bootcamp a year later, also to raise funds for the Hospital. Having filled the 2,500 seats at Wembley –Andrew Reynolds then began looking for an alternative larger venue (not knowing at the time that this first Charity Bootcamp would eventually lead to a massive similar event in the prestigious O2 arena in London’s Docklands, with around 8,000 of Andrew Reynolds Cash On Demand students attending.
