Majestic Raises Over £54k For Children With Cancer UK
We’ve raised £54,646.36 for Children with Cancer UK as part of a year long partnership in 2013.
This sum was raised by collection tins in stores, mobile phone and sat nav recycling, staff activities, raffles and social events. Staff fundraising activities included the Marathon du Médoc, a 26.3 mile race around Bordeaux’s famous vineyards.
For 26 years Children with Cancer UK have invested millions of pounds each year in life-saving research, welfare and campaigning programmes to save young lives.
“We are delighted that our partnership with Majestic Wine was such a success, raising an amazing £54,646.36 and are truly grateful for the support given to us by everyone at the company. Every year 3,600 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. We rely entirely on voluntary donations to continue our vital work in helping to save young lives. Indeed, it is only thanks to support such as Majestic Wine’s that we are able fund even more research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancers. In addition, we also fund a wide variety of welfare initiatives, to help reduce the terrible burden on children and families affected by a diagnosis of cancer today.”
