Staff members from insurance company Royal London are set to take on the Bath Half on Sunday 11th March in support of the Bath Cancer Unit Support Group (BCUSG).
Royal London’s Bath office has supported BCUSG since January 2017 and employees at the firm, which is based on Trim Street, have already raised more than £45,000 for the charity.
BCUSG provides a range of equipment and facilities for cancer patients at Bath’s Royal United Hospital (RUH) and has a fundraising target of £369,822 in total for three new projects that will improve outcomes for local cancer patients.
Royal London staff members are hoping to raise as much money as possible for the cause by completing the 13.1 mile distance.
BCUSG Chairman, Mike Taylor, said, “To date they have raised the fantastic total of £45,678. Royal London have been extremely generous and supportive; they’ve enthusiastically embraced the partnership and done some impressive fundraising.
“We’re delighted that Royal London will once again be helping to raise vital funds for local cancer patients when staff take part in the Bath Half Marathon. We look forward to cheering them across the finishing line.”
Other fundraising activities undertaken by Royal London include a 50-mile Jurassic Coast walk, quiz nights, raffles and other events.
Tamara Ingamells, who is in charge of social responsibility as Royal London’s Bath office, said, “Every member of staff has participated in raising funds for this amazing charity. Everyone has someone special affected by cancer, so it has not been difficult to rally support.
“As a company we are proud to support and give to the local community through the BCUSG, bringing hope and better outcomes, not only for patients, but their family, friends and staff.”
