We are creative and energetic supporters of the causes that are close to our heart, with a particular focus on improving education, physical health and healthy eating, mental wellbeing, financial success and social mobility for children.
Children in Need
Children in Need is the BBC’s charity, dedicated to helping ensure every child in the UK is safe, happy and secure, with the opportunities they need to reach their potential.
We’re one of Children in Need’s official partners, working with them to collect money from the schools raising money for this incredible cause. In 2020 alone we collected half a million pounds from schools.
Comic Relief raises millions of pounds to tackle the root causes of poverty and inequality in the UK and around the world.
ParentPay has partnered with Comic Relief since 2016, allowing thousands of schools and parents to donate securely to this fantastic cause. Red Nose Day 2021 saw over half a million pounds in donations collected through our school payments platform.
Boat of Hope
Bernie Hollywood OBE, philanthropist and adventurer is on a mission to row solo across the Atlantic Ocean as part of the Talisker Whiskey Challenge. He has two aims: to raise £1 million for the Samaritans to create better awareness of children’s mental health issues.
We understand the scale of the challenge when it comes to improving mental health support for young people, and the added pressure brought on by the pandemic, so we’re proud to be the Boat of Hope campaign’s principal partner. We’re providing financial and logistical support, as well as reaching out through schools to spread the word.
His journey begins with a tour of schools around the country, touching lives and bringing inspiration to thousands, before his Boat of Hope even touches the water.
