NEWSBYTE — LONDON —
SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announces today that SAP UK & Ireland (SAP UKI), alongside its partner community, has raised £100,000 for Action for Children, changing the lives of children and their families across the United Kingdom. Held annually by SAP UK & Ireland, the Partner Charity Ball took place Friday, Nov. 18, at Hampton Court Palace in Surrey.

Every year, the partner ball is an opportunity for SAP partners to network with members of SAP UK & Ireland’s senior leadership team. Attendees included Cormac Watters, Managing Director of SAP UK & Ireland and Darren Roos, President, S/4HANA Cloud, as well as our guest speaker for the evening, Mike Rebeiro, Global Head of Technology and Innovation at Norton Rose Fulbright, who also sits on the Action for Children Byte Night board.

For 147 years, Action for Children has helped children and young people across the United Kingdom; from assistance for families who are struggling with parenting, to help for disadvantaged teenagers to overcome all too common issues of abuse, substance misuse and homelessness. Action for Children also offers specialist fostering and adoption services for children in care and is one of the largest providers of services for disabled children and their families.

In 2015 alone, Action for Children helped 390,000 children, young people and families and delivered 611 services. SAP UKI has been a keen supporter of Action for Children for over two years and has previously raised over £70,000. Thanks to the generosity of SAP UKI’s partner community, a further £100,000 will help Action for Children in its aim to make sure every child and young person has the love, support and opportunity they need to reach their potential.

Mike Rebeiro, Global Head of Technology and Innovation at Norton Rose Fulbright said, “The partner ball was a fantastic demonstration of the generosity within the SAP partner network. Being heavily involved with Action for Children, I know the work they do transforms lives, and that the money raised will support front line services.”

Cormac Watters said, “It was amazing to see so many partners rallying together to support us in raising funds for Action for Children. The strength and generosity of our partner ecosystem has immense capabilities, and when we come together we can drive change for the better. I look forward to working with our partners to impact even more lives.”
