Money raised for charity so far this year (Kickstarting in Spring)
Hatchers have an extremely active fundraising calendar, holding both internal and external events to raise money for charity.
Each year the firm supports two charities, which are nominated by Hatchers’ staff. This means that often the charities are very personal to the firm and all staff get involved in raising money. Internally we hold bake sales, dress down days and luncheons to name a few. Over the last few years the staff have walked the Yorkshire Three Peaks, completed various sporting challenges and taken part in lots of other fundraising activities.
This year we are supporting:
Macmillan Cancer Support in Shropshire
Macmillan improves the lives of people affected by cancer locally. They provide practical, medical, emotional and financial support and push for better cancer care. A cancer diagnosis can affect everything. So Macmillan is there to support patients and help them take back control of their lives. From help with money worries and advice about work, to someone who’ll listen if you just want to talk.
There are currently 39 Macmillan Services posts in Shropshire. They range from Macmillan GP’s, to Clinic Nurses Specialists, to Therapists, Support Managers and Benefit advisors. Some are in funding and others may be out of funding but still undergoing Macmillan training. This is to support the 17,000 people who are currently living with cancer here in Shropshire.
Cystic Fibrosis Trust
Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a genetic condition affecting more than 10,800 people in the UK. You are born with CF and cannot catch it, but one in 25 of us carries the faulty gene that causes it, usually without knowing.
The Cystic Fibrosis Trust are working towards a brighter future for everyone with the condition by funding cutting-edge research, driving up standards of care and supporting patients and their loved ones every step of the way. The Trust provides a voice for people affected by CF through their work with clinicians, NHS commissioners and politicians, driving up standards of care and raising awareness of the issues that matter to people living with the condition.
The Trust is committed to bringing together the brightest and best researchers wherever they are in the world, and working to increase the number of clinical trials in the UK with the aim of making it easier for people with CF to take part in trials, wherever they live, and to ensure faster access to better treatments.
