We are thrilled to announce that ICBC Standard Bank has chosen us as their Charity Partner for the next three years.

Rob Threadgold, Global Head of IT Infrastructure, nominated Spread a Smile to be considered for Charity Partner. Rob said, “I have seen first-hand how Spread a Smile can have a remarkable impact on a family. My son spent four months in Great Ormond Street, lots of which was in isolation even from his own brother. When smiles were hard to come by, the team came in and made such an impact on Louis as well as our wider family. They truly are an amazing charity and I will forever be indebted to them for the love and support they showed us all.”

ICBC Standard Bank will be running a number of fundraising challenges and events over the next three years.

On Thursday 4th July, 120 team members from ICBC Standard Bank took park in the JP Morgan Corporate Challenge, a 5.6k run in Battersea Park to raise funds for Spread a Smile. They were joined by Amanda, our Head of Fundraising and Lucy, our CEO, on a very warm sunny evening. All participants contributed to a fundraising page, bringing in over £5,000 to help us spread more smiles

We are so thankful for ICBC Standard Bank’s support and are looking forward to working closely with them.
