The Mannings for Macmillan team
Following a hugely successful 2012 campaign where the team raised an amazing £70,000, Manning Stainton are proud to once again be supporting Macmillan Cancer Support with the launch of Mannings for Macmillan 2014.
This will be the second time Manning Stainton have supported the charity. During 2012, they far exceeded their initial target of £50,000 which would fund a Macmillan nurse for an entire year. Because of their incredible support, Macmillan were able to reach more people affected by cancer than ever before last year.
Mark Manning, Sales Director commented, ‘We’re delighted to be supporting Macmillan again. This is a charity close to the hearts of our team, a cause that has touched and affected so many. We loved working with Macmillan in 2012 and it was an easy decision to choose them again as our charity of the year. We’re challenging ourselves to raise £50,000, so stay tuned for our year of events!’
Throughout the year Manning Stainton will be hosting a number of fundraising events across Leeds to engage the local community.
Clara White, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Leeds says, 'We are so delighted to have the support of Manning Stainton during 2014. This is such an exciting partnership for us here in Leeds and it is going to be a fantastic year!
'Macmillan is funded almost entirely by donations so we quite simply couldn’t do it without them! Their contribution in 2012 blew us away and made such a huge difference to the lives of local cancer patients. Every penny they raise this year will continue to help us get closer to our goal of making sure no one faces cancer alone.'
Locally, Macmillan provides a huge amount of support to cancer patients. They fund nurses at St James’s Hospital and the Leeds General Infirmary and they also provide a free cancer support helpline based in Shipley, West Yorkshire.
