We’re supporting the new ‘Supercharge ParalympicsGB’ campaign in 2016
11 January 2016
We’ve pledged to support the British Paralympic Association to help ‘Supercharge ParalympicsGB’, building on our existing commitment to support the British Paralympic team over the course of 2016.
Supercharge ParalympicsGB, is the first time that the British Paralympic Association (BPA) has created a major public facing campaign to excite fans of Paralympic sport and raise funds for ParalympicsGB. Funds raised will help best prepare the team in the crucial final days before Rio and lay the ground for future success.
As well as BT, the BPA’s commercial partners include some of Britain’s biggest businesses, such as Sainsbury’s, BP and EDF Energy.
Gavin Patterson, CEO, BT Group said“We know that ParalympicsGB is one of the most inspirational teams in the country. We are delighted to be a partner and we urge the public to do what they can to help Supercharge the team.”
Tim Hollingsworth, Chief Executive of the British Paralympic Association, said “We are incredibly proud of our relationships with our commercial partners, which are based on a genuine appreciation for and commitment to Paralympic sport. Our partners showed that they are passionate about supporting the ParalympicsGB team when they signed up to be partners, but with their support for Supercharge ParalympicsGB they have once again demonstrated they are committed to the BPA and the team right the way to Rio.
“I am delighted that they are on board with us and the campaign over this exciting Games year.”
The Supercharge ParalympicsGB campaign includes a Text to Donate facility – TEXT “SUPER” to 70700 - and a wide range of fundraising tools and equipment.
Each text will result in a £5 donation to British Paralympic Association (Charity no. 802385 England/Wales), plus standard network charges (which vary based on service provider rates).
