Supporting our local community
Cancer Research Wales are more than just a long-standing client to us. They are a cause we have worked alongside for several years, supporting their research to create a better future for cancer patients in Wales.
When we asked Katie at Cancer Research Wales how we could support them, fundraising was the resounding answer, as it plays a crucial part in funding the world-class research which helps ensure fewer people feel the fear and heartbreak of cancer. Over the years our support has included:
- Supporting the annual fundraiser ball
- Holding bake sales
- Collections on casual clothes days
- Team building events in aid of Cancer Research Wales
- Promotion of the work Cancer Research Wales does, including attending networking events and holding tours of the university with our clients from across Wales
Now, more than ever, ongoing fundraising support is important as Katie is unable to hold their usual fundraising events. That’s why, in September 2020, our Marsh Commercial colleagues in Cardiff completed a week-long challenge to walk, run and bike the equivalent length of the Welsh coastline – that’s 1,400km!
Each team member pledged a distance to help the group achieve the total distance and raised £2,500 in the process.
“Marsh Commercial have been one of Cancer Research Wales’ longest standing corporate supporters. Their dedicated team not only look after our insurance needs on a day-to-day basis but are also a fantastic support to the work we do at Cancer Research Wales. Always attending our annual golf day, sponsoring our Christmas ball and getting engaged in lots of other fundraising activities. For example, their virtual walk, run and cycle the Welsh Coast that they completed in September during lockdown, raising over £2500. Thank you, Marsh Commercial for your continued support.”
