“Corporate partnerships play a vital role in the level of support we can provide to the hospital and we treasure ours with Barcan+Kirby. They’ve shown determination, passion and a real drive to help their local community, through fundraising events, Gromit Unleashed 2 sponsorship and of course Giles and Gemma’s superhuman efforts in our Lands End to Bristol Cycle.
