Barnardo's is thrilled to announce the extension of a very special partnership with Kier Group plc

Kier

The leading construction, services and property group started its fundraising pledge for Barnardo’s two years ago, and recently announced that it would like to continue supporting us.

An amazing £220,000 has been raised by dedicated Kier staff since the Partnership began, smashing the original two-year target of £70,000. This is a tremendous result.

In addition, Kier has also given around £50,000 worth of gifts-in-kind, ranging from construction services and materials to staff volunteering to refurbish the home of vulnerable young carers.

Barnardo’s Corporate Relationship Manager, Helena Burley, said: “Working with the people of Kier has been the most rewarding and uplifting experience I have had within a corporate Charity Partnership.

“The key to the success of the Partnership between Kier and Barnardo’s is that it has been driven by the  top management and Board who have actively encouraged Kier employees, customers and suppliers to get involved.

Staff have taken on numerous challenges including the Three Peaks Challenge in difficult weather and refurbishing Barnardo’s shops to increase footfall, sales and donations.

The Partnership between Kier and Barnardo’s has shown how rewarding Charity Partnerships can be, not just for the charities involved, but also for the staff who are inspired to raise money for causes close to their hearts.
