The Lombard team in Children with Cancer UK vests
In May 2011, we were thrilled and delighted to learn that we had been chosen as Lombard’s charity of the year 2011/2012.

A year on, and the partnership was extended for another year!

We were chosen through employee nomination and vote, and look forward to a mutually rewarding and beneficial partnership in the weeks and months ahead.

Auctioning a Bendy Bus!

As part of their fundraising exercise, Lombard auctioned a Bendy Bus on ebay for us! Is there no end to their ingenuity and generosity? Take a look on Ebay to see how this auction has performed

The first fundraising challenge

Lombard, an asset finance company celebrated their 150th anniversary in September 2011.

To mark this historic occasion and kick off our partnership, Lombard launched the CSR 150 challenge.

Lombard is delighted to be working alongside Children with Cancer UK as its national partner.
Lombard invited staff to join teams of between four and 20 people to raise money for Children with Cancer UK.  Teams were also encouraged to involve clients, friend and family.

The theme of the event was simply 150.

From riding 150 miles on a bike, 150 legs waxed, 150 cakes baked, or even 150 miles walked on a golf course, prizes were awarded for the most money raised per person or across a team, the most innovative / unusual / wackiest event and the best physical event. 

Working together

"Lombard is delighted to be working alongside Children with Cancer UK as its national partner.  In a recent vote to nominate which charity we would work closely with this year, more than two thirds of the staff who voted, opted for Children with Cancer UK.

I believe this shows a great empathy and desire to support going forward. We look forward to growing the relationship for such a fantastic cause."  Lewis Orchant – Chairperson of CSR Board
