National property consultants, Bruton Knowles, has launched a new charity partnership with Cancer Research UK, with a target of £30,000 to raise over the next two years.
To raise as much money as possible, Bruton Knowles has recruited 12 Charity Champions – one from each UK office. They will spearhead the fundraising initiatives in their local areas, which could range from creative bake-offs to sponsored sleep outs and charity auctions.
James Bailey, Managing Partner at Bruton Knowles, said, “As a company, charity work is incredibly important to us, as it is integral to our business values and allows us to be involved in our local communities. This year, we decided to focus on one charity – Cancer Research UK. We knew it was the right charity to choose for the two-year partnership. We also set ourselves an ambitious target, but it’s one that we know we can achieve!
“Our Charity Champions have been provided with a great opportunity to work with their respective office to develop a programme of fund raising events that will reflect each teams passion as well as providing a challenge, which we enjoy. Creating a Charity Activity Calendar will capture all of our activities and will include supporting the national Cancer Research UK events such as Race for Life, in which our employees will want to participate.”
James Rogers, Gloucestershire Fundraising Manager at Cancer Research UK, added, “I am delighted to see the launch of our charity partnership with Bruton Knowles and am excited to be supporting them over two years, on our mission to raise £30,000. Over the coming months, I will be working closely the Charity Champions on a range of fundraising challenges, events and campaigns.”
