BT are one of our longest-standing partners and consistently make an amazing contribution to Sport Relief.
Since the beginning, the folks at BT have provided us with the systems, call centres, and network support that enables us to process millions of pounds worth of donations over the phone. And they also provide thousands of fantastic volunteers to take those calls too.
Plus, they’ve also sponsored our BT Sport Relief Challenges, which have seen a host of celebrities take on tough challenges to raise tons of cash.
This year they sponsored Jo Brand in her BT Sport Relief Challenge: Jo Brand’s Hell of a Walk, which saw her walking coast-to-coast, from Hull to Liverpool, in seven days. They also sponsored the fantastic Hell on High Seas challenge.
Jo was also the special guest voice of the BT Speaking Clock. BT will donated 10p from every call made to the Speaking Clock from a BT landline.
And if that wasn’t enough, BT staff fundraised in their droves raising hundreds of thousands of pounds.
BT are, in short, awesome, and a lot of what we do simply wouldn’t be possible without them.
