ZenOffice reach £5,000 milestone to help Cancer Research UK create more tomorrows
enOffice are celebrating reaching a significant fundraising milestone, raising over £5,000 for the More Tomorrows Campaign funded by Cancer Research UK in just three months.
Staff at ZenOffice set themselves a target in June of raising £10,000 over 12 months and are well on their way to do doing so, as their current total stands at £5,494. As well as 28 ZenOffice ladies taking part in Race for Life in June, the team have recently participated in Tough Mudder, a 10 mile mud run over obstacles and all types of terrain, and are now in the process of planning their next fundraising activities.
Les Kerr, Managing Director at ZenOffice, said: “I am incredibly proud of #TeamZenOffice for their commitment to the £10K More Tomorrows campaign. The team really have gone above and beyond to raise money and achieve this incredible milestone in such a short space of time. They are truly amazing.”
The More Tomorrows Campaign is a collaboration between Cancer Research UK, the University of Manchester and The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, raising money to fund the new Manchester Cancer Research Centre (MCRC) in Withington. The MCRC’s vision is to become a world-leading centre in translating discoveries made at the lab bench into treatments for cancer patients. The building is currently under construction and will be opening in 2015.
Jack Leetch, Local Fundraising Manager at Cancer Research UK said, “We want to thank everyone at ZenOffice for their fantastic efforts so far and also congratulate their amazing achievement of raising over £5,000 in just three months. The new MCRC building will enable us to revolutionise the way we prevent, diagnose and treat cancer worldwide. It will create more tomorrows for people like the 1,900 people diagnosed with cancer in Manchester each year. It’s fantastic that ZenOffice are fully behind our vision and we are really excited to hear what their next fundraising plans will be.’’
