Here at Commercial Express we strongly believe in supporting charities, local businesses and other important organisations. During the month of December, our staff nominated charities close to their hearts which they believe should be the official Commercial Express Charity of the Year for 2018.
Following a very close and passionate vote, we are delighted to announce that Macmillan Cancer Support will be our Charity for 2018; receiving a substantial donation each month, along with monies from other fundraising activities taking place throughout the year.
Macmillan’s aim is to improve the lives of everyone living with cancer and to inspire millions of others to do the same. There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK today, and as people live longer this number is set to grow to 4 million by 2030. Macmillan want to provide support to everyone who needs it, to help people affected by cancer feel more in control of their lives. The money raised will be going towards the West Midlands and Black Country region, which will help support their counselling service, the specialist ‘care at home’ help they provide and their benefits advice centre. Just £28 can pay for an hour of Macmillan nursing care.
Duncan Pritchard, Managing Director of Commercial Express comments:
“I am thrilled that such a deserving charity has been chosen this year. Cancer is something which affects almost all of us in some way, so to be able to support the great work which Macmillan do is marvellous.” “I am extremely pleased that our monthly donations and other charitable donations will go a long way in improving the lives of those living with cancer and I look forward to seeing what other fundraising events are to be organised by our staff this year.”
Anyone wishing to contribute to the fundraising throughout the year can make a donation via the Commercial Express / Macmillan JustGiving page here: www.justgiving.com/fundraising/commercialexpress.
