20th Anniversary Donation

20th Anniversary Celebration

Helping Hand, a staff charity fund set up for BT employees at Adastral Park, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary – and it has set a fundraising target to mark the event.

The fund was initially set up for people working at BT’s Adastral Park in Suffolk, but it’s evolved to allow anyone from BT in the UK to donate directly from their salary.
