Our partnership with King & Wood Mallesons

King & Wood Mallesons are a global law firm, with their UK office in London. They have been supporting Macmillan since May 2015.

Our partnership with King & Wood Mallesons started in May 2015 when Macmillan won the staff vote for their new charity partnership. The partnership aims to raise £200,000 over two years for people affected by cancer. To raise money, employees have gone all out. The first big fundraisers for the partnership were the London and City Takeover events, where more than 40 employees volunteered, raising more than £2,300 in total. Employees have also fundraised through triathlons, overseas marathons, the annual firm quiz, an aerobathon, and World’s Biggest Coffee Morning. The firm has even created its own cookbook by compiling employees’ favourite recipes.

Recently, we held the first Cancer Awareness session at the firm, where more than 50 employees came to hear more about keeping healthy and reducing their cancer risk.

After an incredibly successful first eight months in partnership, we’re really excited about what’s coming up in 2016 and beyond, and most importantly the difference the partnership can make to the lives of people affected by cancer.
