We have launched a new partnership with UK’s leading transport operator FirstGroup to help us reach even more people affected by cancer.
FirstGroup are dedicating themselves to raising a staggering £100,000, to help support people living with cancer. There are currently more than 2 million people living with cancer in the UK but this is due to double by 2030. By teaming up with FirstGroup we can widen our reach to support everyone affected by cancer - from providing practical, medical, emotional and financial support and being a listening ear to talk to every step of the way.
Katie Smart, CSR and Community Manager at FirstGroup said: ‘We’re delighted to be supporting Macmillan because almost everyone knows somebody affected by cancer. Our employees and customers are passionate about raising money to help the Macmillan team make a real difference to people affected by cancer.’
Partnership Account Manager at Macmillan, Sally Hill said: ‘We’re thrilled FirstGroup are supporting Macmillan to help us to raise awareness of Macmillan more widely across the UK and look forward to seeing what’s to come in 2012 with our new partner.’
