The Travel Parking Group Team with Macmillan Fundraising Manager Clara White
The UK’s biggest provider of meet and greet parking at UK airports, Stress Free Airport Parking and sister company Looking 4 Parking have agreed a five-year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support raising up to £12,000 annually.
The two companies, which form part of the Travel Parking Group, have made Macmillan Cancer Support their key charity for the next five years and will donate 10% of selected booking fees* to the charity as it provides vital practical, medical and financial support to those affected by cancer.
Members of staff will be involved in additional fundraising activities to support the £12,000 a year from company bookings. Travel Parking Group co-founder Dave Greenbrown will be undertaking the New York Marathon on November 3 having already completed the Great North Run, all in support of Macmillan.
Martin Mansell, Managing Director at Travel Parking Group, said, 'We have been fundraising for Macmillan Cancer Support since the beginning of the year and we are delighted they have become our chosen charity for the next five years. A percentage from each of our sales will now contribute and help the vital work they carry out across the UK.
'We will be encouraging all staff to contribute with external fundraising activities, including several members of the team taking on the challenge of the New York Marathon in November to support Macmillan.'
Clara White, Fundraising Manager at Macmillan, said, 'We are so delighted to have the ongoing support of Travel Parking Group. The staff really are going the extra mile to support Macmillan through taking on the incredibly challenging New York Marathon and supporting us through their website.
'Every penny they raise makes a truly massive difference to the lives of people affected by cancer and allows us to fund more nurses and reach even more people that need our help. We want to make sure that no one faces cancer alone and we are one step closer to that goal thanks to the generous support we are receiving from the team at Travel Parking Group.'
