BNP Paribas invited us to The Queen's Tennis Club!

BNP Paribas - Queens Tennis 2017

To mark its 150th anniversary of operating in the UK, BNP Paribas partnered with three charities – Naomi House & Jacksplace, Starlight and The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity.

The bank has offered each charity tickets to give to children, their families and carers to attend the semi-finals of the Aegon championships at The Queen’s Tennis Club on Saturday 24th June.

BNP Paribas - Queens 2017

The day started with a hearty breakfast with a surprise visitor, Greg Rusedski! From then on, families got to witness many different matches and left with a goody bag and some great memories!

The Jones' family were one of seven families to attend from Naomi House & Jacksplace. They had a great day out:

As a family we thoroughly enjoyed the day and felt everyone went above and beyond; from the moment we arrived to an amazing breakfast and then the great matches. I could hear Williams little squeak of excitement every time the ball was struck. Worthy of note that this was the first time the girls have watched tennis live and Patsy is now hooked so we will now be adding that to our social Calender. The day was planned and executed beautifully. A wonderful act of kindness by amazing people.

Anjuli Pandit, Head of UK CSR, BNP Paribas said:

BNP Paribas has been supporting British tennis and the Queen’s tennis tournament since 2009. We hope that all the children, families and carers joining us on Saturday will enjoy a fun and memorable day out at the tennis watching some of the world’s top players. Many thanks to all our charity partners for working with us.

Jill McDonagh, Corporate Fundraiser at Naomi House & Jacksplace commented:

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to take a number of Naomi House & Jacksplace families to Queens courtesy of BNP Paribas. Giving families the opportunity to meet others in a similar situation to their own is hugely powerful, and so too is giving them the chance to let their hair down and enjoy themselves. This really is a unique opportunity and we are hugely grateful to the whole team at BNP Paribas for making it possible.

Thank you to all at BNP Paribas for hosting a truly memorable day for our families.
