In true Baltimore fashion, we couldn’t let World Cancer Day pass by without supporting Cancer Research UK in some way, shape or form. Our CSR team over at Baltimore HQ have been busy working on initiatives to support our charity partners.
World Cancer Day fell on Saturday 4th February, and this year we put our heads together to organise a cash collection at the Bristol Bears vs. Newcastle Falcons home game at Ashton Gate Stadium.
Four of our employees give up their Saturday to volunteer and raise vital funds to support life-saving research in Bristol and the surrounding areas.
We were blown away that the team managed to raise more than £920 in such a limited period of time. The team at Bristol Bears also provided social media support for the initiative through Twitter, informing over 52,000 fans and followers of our intentions.
Charity contribution is an integral aspect of Baltimore Consulting’s business model and Cancer Research UK’s work is not only a cause that is extremely close to CEO, Charmaine Vincent’s heart, but the wider business as well.
Last year, we were awarded Corporate Fundraising Team of the Year 2021 at Cancer Research UK’s Flame of Home Awards.
As our charity of choice, Baltimore Consulting have raised over £30,000 for the charity in the last 2 years through several fundraising activities, from celebrity hosted gala dinners and auctions, to skydives and walking challenges.
As a business, we have seen the effects of cancer first-hand. We’ve felt the impact, and experienced the heartache caused from losing someone you love to cancer. This is what keeps us all motivated and encourages us to continually push the boundaries when it comes to fundraising.
Cancer Research UK’s determination to beat the disease hasn’t faltered; the charity are more focussed than ever on their ambition of seeing 3 in 4 people survive their cancer by 2034.
However, their progress relies on the incredible dedication and commitment of volunteers without whom they would not be able to fund life-saving work.
One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime. All of us can support the research that will beat it.
