RBS has been supporting Macmillan since 2008 and has helped improve the lives of thousands of people affected by cancer across the UK. More than just a fundraising partnership, by working together, we are tackling the poverty that can be caused by cancer.
Donating a whopping £1.5million to date, RBS is helping us to grow the services of our Welfare Rights Teams in Oxford, Glasgow and Durham. This means Macmillan will be able to reach a further 19,782 people, unlocking over £44.6 million of benefits for the people who need it most.
Through the employee engagement programme, the good people of RBS have taken part in specially designed team building activities ranging from fundraising events to offering practical support as volunteers within their community.
Across the UK and Channel Islands, members of staff have raised an amazing £708,000 and hope to have exceeded the £1.5 million mark by the end of 2011.
The partnership goes from strength to strength and you don’t need to take our word for it - at this year’s inaugural Business Charity Awards in June, Macmillan and RBS were nominated in the category of Best Charity Partnership with Mutual Benefit.
