“Working with Lifelites has given our BMJ colleagues the opportunity to make a real and positive impact on the lives of children in hospices."
Our life-changing work wouldn’t be possible without our corporate partners. By forming meaningful partnerships with a number of different companies, we have been able to help them achieve their objectives and engage their employees, whilst reducing our costs and raising crucial funds for the thousands of life-limited and disabled children in hospices that we support.

Having charity support at the heart of your organisation’s culture will motivate and inspire your staff, and by choosing a partnership with Lifelites, you will be offering them valuable professional and personal development opportunities.
We will also give you control over how your donation is spent. We have a Lifelites project at every children’s hospice across the British Isles, so if you are looking to engage with and support children from your local community, your donation can be restricted to supporting children in your area. If you would prefer, your money will go where it’s needed most.

Ruth Staunton is head of corporate marketing at the British Medical Journal (BMJ). She said:
“Working with Lifelites has given our BMJ colleagues the opportunity to make a real and positive impact on the lives of children in hospices. As a values-driven company, inspiring colleagues to take part in (fun!) activities to raise vital funds is very much part of our working culture. We’re all looking forward to the exciting partnership developments in the future.”
Vincent Senecat, Community Manager at Future Games of London (FGOL), ran the London Landmarks Half Marathon with other colleagues, he said:
