Our current partner is Macmillan Cancer Support, which was chosen by our employees.
Macmillan’s ambition is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same.
As a company committed to giving something back to the communities we serve, this is a mission we are happy to share. Our relationship with Macmillan Cancer Support has not only enabled us to give back, but our employees have become involved and connected with the company and each other more closely than ever before.
the year, employees stage a variety of fundraising events — including
coffee mornings, cake sales, barbecues, raffles and much more.
The Big Walk
In 2017, 357,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in the UK. So, in 2018, we challenged our employees, families and friends to join us in taking a step forward for every one of those people by walking 357,000 kilometres. One kilometre for each person.
Over 500 of our people took part and took our total raised for Macmillan Cancer Support to £250,000.
The Big Event
In 2016, decided to go on a five-week carnival roadshow, visiting 130 of our sites. Our Rio Roadshow truck visited sites across the country giving our people the chance to get in the Olympic spirit by cycling, running and rowing the distance from London to Rio, Brazil, home of the 2016 Olympics.
In the end, we racked up a whopping 7,443 miles and by the end of 2016, we had raised a total of £171,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The Big Ride
In 2014, we held The Big Ride, a cycle relay starting in Scotland and finishing in Cornwall. Over 250 of our people cycled legs along the route, which stopped at 110 of our locations.
We managed to cycle over 2,400 kilometres and by the end of 2014, we had raised a total of £86,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
