Westcountry law firm raises £65,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support
Michelmores, based in the Westcountry has raised a total of £65,273 for its Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support. During its 2 year charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support, Michelmores hosted various events across its Exeter, Bristol and London offices. The majority of the funds raised came from the firm's popular 5K run, which takes place in Exeter's City Centre and attracts around 1,000 runners every year. Events also included a Charity Art Auction, Christmas Bazaar and the Macmillan Coffee Morning as also several sweepstakes, raffles and office dress down days. Will Michelmore, senior partner at Michelmores said:"We pride ourselves on our corporate social responsibility programme and supporting our Charity of the Year is central to this." "Macmillan Cancer Support does such fantastic work for all those who have been affected by cancer, which I think really resonated with our staff members – inspiring them to go above and beyond in raising money for this great cause." Bridget Hill, local fundraising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: "The money raised will make a huge difference to people affected by cancer."
