We’re proud to announce that we’ve raised £2 million for
Cancer Research UK, through employee donations. Driven by Charity Champions
right across the country, our people have been passionately raising money through
all sorts of initiatives from bake sales and tombolas, sports matches and
marathons, to donation stations and payroll giving.
As part of our Community Programme, Families Matter, we
partnered with Cancer Research UK in 2015 with the aim of raising £300,000
over four years to match a donation made by the Warburton family. Rising to the
challenge, we smashed this target in just two years. The fundraising didn’t
stop there, and our people have been organising and taking part in fundraising
activities, they’ve donated generously and after five years we’ve now raised a
whopping £2 million!
We are incredibly proud of the hard work and energy that
our people have put into raising this incredible amount of money for such a
worthy cause. Cancer touches so many families, and at Warburtons, family is at
the heart of everything we do, so we are delighted to be supporting Cancer
Michelle Mitchell OBE, Chief Executive Officer at Cancer Research UK, said:

We look forward to continuing to
raise money for this great cause and to help keep families together across the
