We are delighted to have been shortlisted for the Third Sector Business Charity Awards 2020 under the category of best automotive and transport partnership.
In 2019, the staff and customers of the automotive company BCA joined forces to raise funds for Action for A-T. BCA partnered with Action for A-T to deliver a mass participation cycle event which started at their auction centre in Paddock Wood, Kent and ended in Bruges.
The the partnership involved stakeholders from all across the business and various locations around the country and each participant was tasked with raising sponsorship. The cycle event was delivered by the team at Action for A-T to keep the costs low, maximise funds for research and build lasting relationships with the riders. BCA underwrote the event cost and secured high level sponsorship from their suppliers as well as matching their employees fundraising efforts.
More than 70 riders took part covering over 250 miles, over 3 days and £141,692 was raised for research into A-T. BCA are committed to helping the charity in our mission to find a cure or treatment for A-T and have raised over £340,000 for research over the past 3 years.
The partnership has been shortlisted alongside two other charity partnerships and the winners will be announced in the coming weeks. To find out more about the awards and all of the fantastic organisation being recognised for their efforts, visit https://www.businesscharityawards.com/
