  • demonstrates a can-do attitude and volunteers with enthusiasm and passion
  • goes above and beyond the partnership plans by showing innovation, collaboration and drive within the corporate setting

Robbie Newton, 2017 UK winner
The charity champion rising to the challenge

Assistant Branch Manager Robbie has been a tireless Charity Champion since the beginning of our partnership with Travis Perkins in 2015, driving the partnership by contacting other branches to inspire them and offer fundraising tips, and regularly giving up his weekends for the cause. In 2016 alone he took on 26 active challenges, including the London Marathon and England’s longest zip wire. He also played a key role in Travis Perkins’ most successful fundraising event in 2016 – The Tour de TP. With his infectious passion, Robbie gives everything to his volunteer role and is an outstanding ambassador for Macmillan.
