HBP Group 2020 Charities
At the HBP Group, we consider the charity and fundraising work we do to be an important responsibility for the business and our employees. The Charity Committee at HBP Group decide on our 2 chosen charities each year from nominations put forward by our staff, which means the ones we choose to support and raise money for are always close to our hearts so we’re dedicated to raising as much as possible.
We are pleased to announce that 2020’s chosen charities are Bliss and Wishh (Working Independently to Support Hull Hospitals). These two remarkable organisations have helped many of us within the HBP Family and we’re proud to be supporting them this year.
Who are Bliss?
Bliss exists to give every baby born prematurely or sick in the UK the best chance of survival and quality of life. They support over 200 hospitals in the UK, providing emotional, financial and practical support to parents whose child may be in a neonatal unit in their first days, weeks, months of their lives.
They also put their funds into campaigning for change and also life-changing research programmes.
Who are Wishh?
Wishh (Working Independently to support Hull Hospitals) is an independent charity raising money locally to make hospitals a better place and to create a real difference to patients, their families and visitors.
Their ambition is to enhance facilities, equipment and services at Hull Royal Infirmary and Castle Hill Hospital over and above what the NHS can achieve alone.
How are we fundraising for these charities?
Following the success of last years Yorkshire 3 Peaks Challenge, we have decided to run this activity again but with a twist… This year, just to make it even more challenging and fun, we will be splitting into teams and competing to complete the challenge with every member of the team having to finish for the team to win! The walk takes place on Saturday 27th June and we will have 12 hours to complete it.
We faced some terrible conditions last year whilst completing this challenge, but this hasn’t put us off! We previously raised £10, 854 and we are hoping to surpass that amount this year for these amazing charities.

We will also have smaller fundraising activities throughout the year such as a 24 hour Game-athon and Golf Days, we will also be raising money at some of our Internal Staff Social events.
