Years of support

Bank of Montreal (BMO) are long-time supporters of Barts Charity. They have supported some of our most impactful projects, including a Sensory Room at The Royal London Hospital.

Some of their creative fundraisers include Peter, who dyed his hair neon pink, and Alison and the Admin Team, who jumped out of a plane. As if that wasn’t enough, staff at BMO went the extra mile at Christmas time. Their donations helped to ensure young patients in hospital over Christmas each had a present to open. They even gave up their time to wrap hundreds of presents at The Royal London Hospital. We’re so thankful to everyone who donated and volunteered.

This year, a tandem sky dive and a hair dye challenge inspired BMO’s staff to dig even deeper than usual. They raised a record-breaking £72,000 to support trauma care at Barts Health NHS Trust.
