About the partnership
HSBC Bank Plc Collections department chose CLIC Sargent as its charity of the year partner for 2011 and due to the success of the partnership and the commitment of the HSBC staff to our cause, the partnership was extended for 2012.
Staff in HSBC Collections department have shown real commitment to fundraising for CLIC Sargent and have held cake sales, organised sponsored walks, held dress down days and abseiled their way to raising over £30,000 for CLIC Sargent.
Not only have HSBC staff engaged in fundraising activity, they have also shared their expertise with CLIC Sargent staff - holding financial workshops with our social workers. Many HSBC staff have given up their time to volunteer for CLIC Sargent and assist at events.
Fundraising in 2012 has included the Valentine’s Day re-launch, participation in our national campaign Yummy Mummy (now called The Great Mums Get Together). Chris Oberhouser bravely led the way with our new national campaign The Big Buzz by shaving his head raising over £1,800. Five daring staff members also took part in the abseil down the Wesleyan building, raising over £2,000 for children and young people with cancer.
