Nationwide support Cancer Research UK

Nationwide will be supporting Cancer Research UK as its charity partner for 12 months.

The partnership will see the Nationwide Teams fundraise across the UK as they try to raise thousands of pounds.

Nationwide team members nominate charities for consideration, these are then short-listed for a final vote open to all employees. Cancer Research UK received the most votes overall, and so Nationwide will partner with the charity with the aim to raise as much money as possible to help their work continue. This comes at a particularly poignant time for Nationwide as many of the team have been personally affected by cancer over the past year.

The Nationwide team look forward to partnering Cancer Research UK and will be looking to beat last year’s fundraising total of £42,363 raised for UK Air Ambulances.

Nationwide CEO, Michael Wilmshurst, said, ‘Charity fundraising is integral to our business, taking the time to support those in need is something the Nationwide Team take immense pride in. This year we are supporting a charity which I know is very personal to many of the team at Nationwide and I’m sure we will work together to achieve an excellent fundraising total for Cancer Research. We look forward to supporting this important research.’
