Regional charity partners revealed
BGL Group announces five new charity partners who will share in £160,000 of additional funding
Colleagues at BGL’s five sites have selected the charities they will support for the next two years, as the Group aims to positively impact the lives of 250,000 people and donate £3 million to good causes by 2020.
People across the Group have been voting for the causes they would like to see benefit from an ambitious new regional charity partnership programme, the BGL Make a Difference Fund.
The BGL Make a Difference Fund offers funding and support to a local charity based close to each of BGL’s five key sites in Peterborough, Sunderland, London, Wakefield and across the channel in Paris.
More than 70 organisations applied to the fund and the five chosen charity partners are:
• Peterborough – Sue Ryder Thorpe Hall Hospice
• Sunderland - 4Louis
• Wakefield - Eve Merton Dreams Trust
• London – The Sick Children’s Trust
• Paris – Autremonde
Not only will the charities be supported by regular volunteering and fundraising over the next two years by BGL’s people, they will also receive a significant cash injection.
BGL’s Chief Executive Officer, Matthew Donaldson, said: “Supporting the community is part of who we are at BGL. We are delighted to partner with these charities to make a real difference to the many people who will benefit from these projects. We will be supporting them not just with substantial funding but with our people’s time.
“The success of our existing community programme is very much down to the commitment of our people and I know these are all causes close to their hearts.”
