We are delighted to announce MacMillan Cancer Support as our ‘Charity of the Year’ for 2016. We are kicking off our fundraising this week with our launch event ‘£ for Pizza’, encouraging staff to get in on a slice of the action.
Each of our 9 offices will be taking part in the effort to raise £10,000 for MacMillan Cancer Support. Our fundraising begins with the launch event ‘£ for Pizza’ this week with Clark Thomson providing and covering the cost of pizza for all our staff encouraging them to buy a slice for £1 with all proceeds going to Macmillan.
This weekend, following our ‘Charity of the Year’ launch event, 16 of our staff members will be travelling to Drumlanrig Castle to participate in the Tough Mudder challenge. Clark Thomson have covered the entry fee for all our participants and we will match the money raised. So far our team have raised over £1000.
Macmillan’s local fundraising manager, Kerry Scott said: “We are delighted to have been chosen as Clark Thomson’s first charity partner.
“No one should have to face cancer alone and with the support of firms like this, they won’t have to.
“We would like to thank Clark Thomson for choosing us and we are looking forward to working with employees on some great fundraising ideas. Excited to have them entering a Macmillan Team for Tough Mudder at the end of the month and wishing them the very best of luck for that.”
The money raised from our partnership will be used to fund Macmillan’s vital cancer services including specialist nurses working throughout the NHS, a nurse-run support line and grants for cancer patients with money problems.
We are delighted that fundraising has begun for such a fantastic charity and we anticipate smashing the £10,000 target.
