JLL is a global financial and professional services firm specialising in commercial real estate services and investment management.
In the UK, more than 3,000 employees will be supporting, fundraising and volunteering to make life a little brighter, and hundreds of wishes come true, for seriously ill children after selecting Starlight as their National Charity Partner for 2015/16.
Over the two year partnership Starlight will benefit from the significant funds raised by signature annual events including the JLL Property Triathlon, JLL Property 5k, RideLondon-Surrey 100 and the Virgin London Marathon. Activities including cake sales, sporting challenges, book sales and quizzes supplement the main events and are organised directly by staff across the firm’s 15 UK commercial offices and a number of dedicated Residential offices.
Guy Grainger, JLL’s UK CEO, commented: “Our new partnership means we have an incredible opportunity to make a tangible, visible and life-changing difference to hundreds of children over the next two years.”
Neil Swan, Chief Executive of Starlight Children’s Foundation, said: “We are absolutely delighted that JLL has chosen Starlight. We believe this partnership will be truly transformational for the charity because the funds raised will help us bring fun, laughter and distraction to significantly more seriously and terminally ill children all over the country.”
