Can your business meet the “Star Business Challenge” in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support?

Happy 100th Birthday!!

Our South Yorkshire What’s On 4 Me region are proud to report that supporters of across South Yorkshire have been celebrating the charities 100th Birthday by arranging a series of events across the city.

Two major local fundraisers include Fancie and Nabarro have joined the challenge! Nabarro are one of the companies who signed up to the Star Business Challenge which aims to find 100 companies to raise at least £100,000 to support Macmillan. Forty-two firms have signed up so far raising more than £45,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support – with a further £48,000 pledged.

Any firms interested in signing up for the Business Challenge should call 01246 810 301 or email sloane@macmillan.org.uk

Sheffield-based law firm, Nabarro marked Macmillan’s milestone birthday by handing over a cheque of nearly £12,000!!  The company has raised over £20,000 in 2011 so far, Chris Chambers, a partner from the firm, explains, “Our main fundraising event was our annual charity ball and we also entered a large team to run for Macmillan in the Sheffield Half Marathon.
We will also support Macmillan events throughout the year such as the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning and Go Green for Halloween.”

Fancie joined in the celebrations by creating a giant cupcake mosaic which measured 6ft x 10.5ft.  The team arranged for cupcakes to be decorated by customers to create the mosaic!  For making a donation to Macmillan each person was shown how to decorate a cupcake and placed it on the Mosaic, they were also treated to a delicious mini cupcakes created especially for the  charity.

The Sheffield-based company which has three stores across the city has already raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support by selling a special cupcake in aid of Macmillan for 100 days.

But Macmillan is keen for more local businesses to get involved. Area Manger, Steve Loane said, “Figures show that four in ten people will now be affected by cancer which means the support of companies like Nabarro has never been more important to Macmillan.”
