BNP Paribas Leasing Solutions began supporting Together for Short Lives in 2018 through their Bristol office. BNP Paribas raised a fantastic £19,000 in the first year alone, helping families with seriously ill children to get the right support and making a lifetime of difference.
Staff at BNP Paribas offices were enthusiastic to get involved in the partnership from the outset, with over 30 colleagues joining in on our 2018 Together we Trek event as their yearly Big Challenge. Together they raised over £12,000 in sponsorship funds through months of office bake sales and training sessions, before joining us on the big event of trekking a grueling 22-miles of Wiltshire countryside – at night.
The Bristol office continued to raise funds throughout 2019 and took on an outstanding big challenge trekking the Welsh 4 Peaks in September of 2019.
This event gave us the opportunity to go through a difficult challenge together as a team and test our limits. We were inspired by the courage demonstrated by families and children dealing with sickness. A night out walking is nothing compared to living with illness and we are glad we can make a difference for them.Benoit LaFlamme, Head of Rental Solutions UK
Donated in 2020 to support our lifeline services during the Covid-19 pandemic
As the global pandemic began to filter through in 2020, the Bristol office BNP team generously donated their social budget to Together for Short Lives, helping to support seriously ill children and their families through an incredibly difficult time. We are thrilled to be continuing this partnership into 2021 and look forward to working with the team on lots of virtual and traditional fundraising and challenges as well as more ‘Big Challenges’.
