Thu, 15 May 2014

Leading provider of consumer finance solutions, BNP Paribas Personal Finance, has announced the support of six charities local to its offices in Solihull and Belfast as part of its annual ‘Make a Difference’ fundraising and volunteering programme.

Each charity has been nominated by its employees, and over the course of the year colleagues will be volunteering their time and expertise to help raise funds, and awareness for the causes in their region.

BNP Paribas Personal Finance will be supporting Birmingham based children’s charities such as brain cancer charity Help Harry Help Others, Friends of Reynalds Cross School and Kids Run Free, a West Midlands initiative, which encourages children to enjoy a healthy active lifestyle.

The team based in Belfast has nominated causes including Tiny Life, a charity that helps premature babies and their families, Northern Ireland Cancer Fund for Children and the Northern Ireland Kidney Patients Association, which aims to help patients and their carers through support, and advice.

Stephen Hunt, CEO, BNP Paribas Personal Finance said: “Since the launch of BNP Paribas Personal Finance’s ‘Make a Difference’ programme in 2008 we have so far raised over £200,000 and our teams have volunteered 2,500 staff hours to good causes across the UK.

“This year we have nominated six fantastic causes to support in Birmingham and Belfast such as Help Harry Help Others, which was started by the inspirational Harry Moseley and his battle with brain cancer. These are fantastic worthwhile causes, and we are looking forward to giving them continued support over the year.”
