Our UK Partnerships
BAPS Charities is driven by a strong sense of community spirit and our volunteers have often partnered with local, national and international charities to help those most in need. These include:
Children in Need, one of the UK’s favourite charity campaigns, through an inspiring cultural programme staged just by children.
The British Heart Foundation, the UK’s leading charity working to prevent premature heart disease through pioneering research, vital prevention activity, and quality care and support. BAPS raised £25,000 for the BHF during the 2006 National Sponsored Walk.
The Blue Peter ‘ShoeBiz Appeal’ in support of a worldwide UNICEF campaign aimed at helping needy children in Malawi orphaned through AIDS. Young BAPS volunteers collected over 4,000 pairs of shoes.
Breast Cancer Care, UK, the country’s leading provider of information, practical assistance and emotional support for anyone affected by breast health concerns. BAPS volunteers helped collect £12,000 during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October 2007.
Diabetes UK – set up in 1934 by two diabetics, HG Wells and Dr RD Lawrence – is the largest organisation in the UK working for people with diabetes, funding research, campaigning and helping people live with the condition. BAPS volunteers helped to raise £24,000 for Diabetes UK in 2008.
The Anthony Nolan Trust manages the UK’s most successful ‘Register’ of volunteers prepared to donate their bone marrow to patients suffering from leukaemia whose only hope of survival is a bone marrow transplant. BAPS volunteers helped to raise £22,000 for The Anthony Nolan Trust in 2009.
Barnardo’s believe in the potential of every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. The Charity was founded in 1867 by Thomas Barnardo and now helps more than 100,000 children, young people and their families every year. BAPS volunteers helped raise £25,000 for Barnado’s in 2010.
