Our corporate supporters provide essential services, infrastructure and technology to Soccer Aid. Without them Soccer Aid simply couldn't happen. UNICEF would like to say a huge thank you to the following organisations.
The BGL Group, one of the UK's leading personal lines insurance groups who own companies such as Budget and Compare the Market, are generously supporting Soccer Aid 2012.
On Sunday 27 May, three BGL offices in Sunderland, Coventry and Peterborough are kindly offering their contact centre services to help facilitate a successful telethon. BGL are also supporting the event by implementing their own recruitment campaign for BGL employees to volunteer to receive incoming calls.
BT makes an amazing contribution to Soccer Aid and is integral to the appeal. The wonderful people at BT provide us with their MyDonate platform, use of the BT Tower and the network support that enables us to process hundreds of thousands pounds worth of donations over the phone and via the web. They also provided hundreds of volunteers in the BT Tower and BT Newport to take those calls too.
We are delighted that Confero have donated call centre support and volunteers for the second time. The call centre services company use Soccer Aid as an opportunity to engage their staff with charitable causes and it’s great that they’ve chosen to get behind UNICEF once again.
Many thanks to Google for the loan of Google Chromebooks, which were a key part in the setting up of the ITV call centre.
Soccer Aid simply wouldn’t happen without ITV and we are immensely grateful for the expert advice and support we receive from our friends at ITV Interactive. As well as broadcasting the show ITV have provided amazing operational support, guiding us through the complex technical and logistical side of running a successful telethon. ITV staff have also generously given up their Sunday evening to take calls, raising money for UNICEF to help save children’s lives around the world.
The UK Government
We're incredibly excited that the UK Government will match every donation made to Soccer Aid as part of the UK Aid Aid Match programme. This means that for every pound you donate UNICEF receives double for our work with children around the world.
This huge level of support will help us save and change the lives of many more children round the world and ensure that the project funded by Soccer Aid will make a lasting difference for years to come.
We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at Vertex Dingwall who has given up their Sunday night to help UNICEF save children’s lives. Vertex have donated their call centre and filled it with willing volunteers to take calls and process donations. We hope they enjoyed the night and look forward to working together on future events.
Procter and Gamble
Proctor & Gamble have generously donated some great items in support of Soccer Aid 2012 which will be used as prizes and goody-bag fillers for our telethon volunteers who work hard to take as many donations as possible in aid of UNICEF on the night. We would like to thank P&G for their support.
To help incentivise our volunteers who will be manning the telethon phones in support of UNICEF throughout the match, Britvic have been amazing in providing every volunteer with a bottle of water to go in their goody bags. We would like to extend a big thank you to Britvic for their generous donation.
For Soccer Aid 2012 we have more telethon volunteers than previous years and with their support we hope to raise even more money to help change children’s lives. Thanks to Clarks, one of our longstanding corporate partners, for providing prizes for our volunteers, who will be working hard taking phone donations on the night of the match.
A big thank you to Daisy plc who have supported Soccer Aid 2012 by kindly donating an iPad3 to help incentivise our call centre volunteers to take as much money as possible in aid of UNICEF UK on the night.
