BHBi makes donation to Macmillan
BHBi is delighted to announce it has donated £1,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support for the second consecutive year.
BHBi's Director of Strategic Operations, Paul Haley said, “As the UK's largest private sector provider of professional Internal Audit training, we strongly believe in social responsibility and are delighted to have made a £1,000 donation to such a worthwhile charity on behalf of all our Internal Audit students.”
He added, "This is the second successive annual donation and shows our commitment to building on our growing relationship with Macmillan. We further hope we can encourage our Alumni to also support our charitable aims which will demonstrate that we and our fellow internal audit profession colleagues care about the society in which we operate.”
Rebecca Parke, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support said ‘I want to say a huge thank you to everyone at BHBi for choosing to support Macmillan Cancer Support by raising funds with a donation from student enrolments. Macmillan relies almost entirely on donations so the £1000 raised really will make a huge difference to people affected by cancer. We are looking forward to continuing working with you all in 2014.’
The donation came as a result of a training course discussion with students during a module on Corporate Social Responsibility. Following a class debate, BHBi staff decided that there was an opportunity for the company to make a bigger difference and show that BHBi and the Internal Audit community can make an impact on wider society.
Macmillan was chosen because of the excellent compassionate work that it does, which touches many people’s lives throughout the UK.
BHBi will continue making a donation for every student that enrols in 2014 and plans to undertake additional initiatives with Macmillan, which will involve BHBi staff, students, and professional Internal Audit colleagues.
