Since 2009 the London office has run a Charity Partner programme. We partner with a charity for a period of two years and all our fundraising activities are geared towards raising money for our chosen charity.
Our current Charity Partner, until the end of 2019, is Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust is the only UK-wide charity dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited for everyone affected by cystic fibrosis. Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is the UK’s most common life-limiting genetic condition, affecting more than 10,400 people. It slowly destroys the lungs and digestive system, and the median age of death is just 31.
Jacqueline Rogers at Cystic Fibrosis Trust, commented:
"We are delighted to have been selected by Bird & Birds employees as your charity of the year for the next two years and are excited at what we can achieve together to raise awareness and funds for people with cystic fibrosis. Together we really will be able to make a difference!"
