The Corporate Volunteer Award

For employees of our corporate partners who make an outstanding contribution through volunteering.

About this award

This award is for an individual or group that: 

  • is employed by one of Macmillan’s current corporate partners, but not specifically to support Macmillan
  • demonstrates a can-do attitude and volunteers with enthusiasm and passion
  • goes above and beyond the partnership plans by showing innovation, collaboration and drive
  • shows greater commitment than other colleagues or groups by championing Macmillan, encouraging other colleagues to get involved, and being seen as the face of Macmillan within their organisation.

Matt Hawkins, 2018 UK winner

Ever since Macmillan teamed up with Argos in 2015, Divisional Manager Matt has brought unparalleled commitment to his role as a Charity Champion. So far, the 234 Argos stores across the West of England that Matt is responsible for have raised an incredible £484,990.84 for Macmillan, and it’s all down to his influence. 

In 2017, Matt ran the London, Berlin and New York marathons for Macmillan, and has tirelessly encouraged his colleagues to take on their own challenges. 

He also organised a ‘Macmillan Takeover’ for all stores in his division, personally participating in fundraising challenges in five stores, all in one day. There’s no doubt that Matt is an outstanding ambassador for Macmillan.
