BNP Paribas announces its 2013 UK charity of the year

December 6, 2012

BNP Paribas is pleased to announce that the NSPCC has been chosen as its 2013 UK Charity of the Year. BNP Paribas’ UK-based employees were asked to elect their favourite cause from a shortlist of four charities, with the NSPCC receiving 45% of the vote. The NSPCC will receive the proceeds from employee fundraising activities throughout 2013, as well as being the beneficiary of this year’s Christmas raffle. Employees will also have the opportunity to get involved in volunteering with the charity over the course of the year.

The NSPCC works to end cruelty to children in the UK. Its ChildLine service receives thousands of calls from children reporting abuse and neglect, providing these children with help, support and hope. With BNP Paribas’ support, the NSPCC will introduce a dedicated schools service to help reach younger children in London and the UK.
