Our partnership with Telent

Macmillan and telent have been working together since summer 2015. From the start of our partnership together, telent have raised over £195,000 through fantastic employee and supplier fundraising. The money raised by telent will allow Macmillan to provide vital services to people affected by cancer right across the UK.

In addition to taking part in World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, Christmas fundraising, and an annual Golf Day, as part of their 10th anniversary, telent decided to engage employees across the business with a company-wide fundraising challenge.  The telent Challenge 1100 saw over 200 employees take part in a site-to-site relay stretching 1,100km across the country.

Mark Plato, Chief Executive Officer at telent Technology Services said: 'Our staff chose to support Macmillan Cancer Support as many of us have and will be affected by cancer in some way during our lives. In 2016, we celebrated telent’s 10th birthday and set ourselves an ambitious target of raising £100,000 for Macmillan. Thanks to the hard work and dedication of our staff, families, friends and customers who really got behind our fundraising, we far exceeded this target.

'Macmillan is a fantastic charity and we are proud to be working with them as a Corporate Partner. 2016 was a phenomenal year for fundraising and we were really grateful for the support we have had from Macmillan. We are excited to see what 2017 brings and look forward to raising more money for this great cause to help provide those living with cancer, the support they need.'

In November 2016, following an incredibly successful 18 months we were so pleased to hear that telent were committing to a further two years or working together in partnership with us. We can’t wait to see what telent have in store for Macmillan and by committing to a further two years together we’ll be able to raise even more vital funds for people affected by cancer across the UK.
