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 Research UK.

Michelle Mitchell OBE, Chief Executive Officer at Cancer Research UK, said:

“We are enormously grateful to Warburtons employees across the UK who have helped to raise an incredible £2 million for Cancer Research UK. Your extraordinary contribution has helped us to accelerate progress and save more lives. Together, with your continued support, we will beat cancer. Thank you.”

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