The CIE team continue our fundraising efforts for Maggie's Cancer Support Centre this September as members of our team take on the Robin Hood Half Marathon!
Since two members of the CIE team were unfortunately diagnosed with cancer recently, they have both found the support of Maggie's to be invaluable.
And so, following the success of our Cycle Challenge in 2017 and the generosity of our supporters and sponsors, we now have a running team to help give even more support to Maggie's Centre.
This September, CIE colleagues Caroline Rainbow, Gosia Kacprzycka and Julian Salter will take on the Robin Hood Half Marathon, they have called themselves the CIE Flyers, hoping to raise their target sum of £1000.
In March 2018, we were lucky enough to be invited to visit the Maggie's Support Centre in Nottingham to see for ourselves how their work helps to support so many people from the Nottingham area who are affected by cancer, It was our great pleasure on the day to hand over a cheque for £5000 to help support their work.
Centre Manager for Maggie's Nottingham - Kate Martin - told us why the fundraising efforts and all your donations are so important;
"We provide emotional, psychological, social and practical support to anyone affected by cancer. Fundraising is hugely important to us and we're so grateful to CIE for recognising the support we've given to their colleagues. We are so grateful to CIE for raising this money for us and we will continue to provide the high level of support that we do. Thank you guys!"
