Michelmores raises over £65,000 for Charity of the Year Macmillan Cancer Support

Michelmores is proud to announce a fundraising total of £65,273 for its Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support.

Over its two year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, Michelmores hosted a variety of events across its Exeter, Bristol and London offices.

The majority of funds raised came from the firm’s popular 5K run, that takes place in Exeter's City Centre and attracts around 1,000 runners each year.

Events also included a Charity Art Auction, Christmas Bazaar and Macmillan Coffee Morning along with several sweepstakes, raffles and office dress down days.

Will Michelmore, Senior Partner at Michelmores said:

"We pride ourselves on our corporate social responsibility programme and supporting our Charity of the Year is central to this."

"Macmillan Cancer Support does such fantastic work for all those who have been affected by cancer, which I think really resonated with our staff members – inspiring them to go above and beyond in raising money for this great cause."

Bridget Hill, Local Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said:

"We are delighted to have been chosen as Michelmores' Charity of the Year for the past two years."

"As well as the fantastic Charity Run, the firm has hosted a number of events, with staff members running, cycling, baking and even self-tanning to increase the total!"

"I hope that everyone at Michelmores is proud of what they have achieved for Macmillan Cancer Support – the money raised will make a huge difference to people affected by cancer."

Michelmores will announce its new Charity of the Year in January 2016.
