Redmayne-Bentley is delighted to announce that it has chosen Macmillan Cancer Support as its official 2013 ‘Charity of the Year’ partner. The year-long partnership with Macmillan kicked-off at Redmayne-Bentley’s Head Office at 9 Bond Court with the first monthly Super Draw raffle. Further fundraising activities that are already in the diary include Leeds Run For All on Sunday 14th July and the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September.
David Loudon, Redmayne-Bentley’s managing partner commented: “We’re all delighted to be supporting such a worthy cause and hope to raise as much as possible over the next 12 months.”
Macmillan supports three information centres at St James’s Hospital, which includes the Robert Ogden Macmillan Centre, providing expert care and support to patients and their families. They can drop in for a drink, some time out, or just a chat. There are also lots of complementary therapies like massage and reiki available too. All services are available free to anyone affected by cancer.
Clara White, Macmillan fundraising manager (Leeds) commented: “We are so delighted that Redmayne-Bentley has chosen to support Macmillan this year! Every penny they raise is going to make a massive difference to the lives of cancer patients here in Leeds and across the whole of the UK. No one should face cancer alone and with the support of companies like Redmayne-Bentley, no one will have to.”
Each year the Leeds-based stockbroker asks it staff to vote for a charity of their choice, with Macmillan being this year’s stand out candidate.
The launch of the partnership draws a close to last year’s fundraising efforts for Leeds Children’s Hospital which saw the Leeds office raise £6,967.77.
