BNP Paribas’ UK Community and Charity programme was launched in April 2008 and provides a range of educational, environmental and community regeneration schemes to support residents from local disadvantaged neighbourhoods in North West London, particularly focusing on the Church Street Ward, one of the UK’s most deprived areas. This is done through a combination of staff volunteering and financial support.
Our core charity partners include:
● Macmillan Cancer Support (Our Charity of the Year for 2012)
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care. Macmillan Cancer Support’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer in the UK.
Donations from BNP Paribas have and will continue to help towards the UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre in Euston, London which opened its doors to its first patients in April 2012, and Macmillan Grants, one-off financial grants which help people with cancer to cover the extra costs associated with cancer. Visit the BNP Paribas “Just Giving” page to keep up to date with the amount of money that is being raised for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Vital Regeneration is a charity working to transform London’s most deprived neighbourhoods. It develops social, environmental and economic programmes, so that people and communities fulfil their potential through learning, employment and enterprise. Its vision is for everyone to have equal expectations and opportunities in life and not to be seriously disadvantaged by where they live.
The Royal Parks Foundation is the charity that helps support London’s eight Royal Parks so that everyone can enjoy them now and in the future.
The Royal Parks – Bushy Park, The Green Park, Greenwich Park, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, The Regent’s Park (with Primrose Hill), Richmond Park and St James’s Park – are our most vital sources of health and well being. Everything the Foundation does is designed to help protect and enhance The Royal Parks because they are so important to London, Londoners and the history of the country as a whole.
