Webhelp UK donates a further £10k to Macmillan

Webhelp UK has donated an additional £10,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support following a very successful start to the charity partnership.

On Tuesday, Webhelp Chief Executive David Turner presented a cheque for £10,000 to Jan Forrest from Macmillan.

Macmillan Cancer Support was chosen to be the charity partner of the customer experience management company prior to Christmas with the aim to raise £23,500 in 2014 for this worthwhile cause.

Webhelp sites across the UK have raised an impressive £6,500 so far this year and with David Turner kindly donating the further £10,000, they are well on the way to achieving the target.

The Webhelp team raised the money by taking part in a number of activities.  Charitable fundraising and local contribution are an important aspect of the work Webhelp undertakes throughout the UK. Engagement Ambassadors at the UK sites are responsible for co-ordinating fundraising activities and ensuring events have necessary support.

Jan Forrest, Area Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, attended the presentation. Jan said:

“We could not support people living in the UK with a cancer diagnosis without the generosity of the people of Webhelp who have excelled themselves through recent fundraising efforts along with the substantial company donation received today for £10,000.  

“This donation will support our mission to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone and Macmillan is able to provide vital local services.  We look forward to working with Webhelp throughout the year.”

David Turner, Chief Executive at Webhelp UK, commented on the total that had already been achieved and was confident the company would meet its donation targets. David said:

“Our charity partner link-up is an important aspect of the company’s work and it is excellent to see so many of our people giving up their time to get involved with our fundraising targets.

“Macmillan provides invaluable support to those affected by cancer and it is an honour for Webhelp to contribute to this cause.”
