The BBA nominates 3 charities
for 2022 to give back to!

Working and growing together as a team is something we all feel strongly about, at the BBA. And working together for the good of those we serve and work alongside in our community, even more so.

We run regular social activities that bring our teams together, and this year, we’ve decided to change things up a bit. We are thrilled to have chosen our three nominated charities that we will support in the year ahead and base a lot of our team-building activities around.

The three charities we have selected to support were chosen by our staff who shared common themes in their nominations.

Our support aims to be a mixture of physical volunteering, fund-raising and awareness through social activity.

Introducing our nominated charities for 2022:
