Newby Castleman fundraising for Hope Against Cancer reaches £1,000!

Leicestershire firm of chartered accountants, Newby Castleman, has raised £1,000 for Hope Against Cancer, approaching one year since they announced our charity partnership.

It follows a month-long awareness campaign which ran between mid-July and mid-August on Twitter, Facebook and Linked In, encouraging Newby Castlemans followers to like / share a post directing users to our website, with the Accountants making a 10p donation for each interaction.

That initiative, in addition to a host of other fundraising activities including dress-down days and cake sales, has brought the total funds raised by Newby Castleman to four figures.

Last Autumn Newby Castleman announced their partnership with us as part of the Hope Through Business initiative. This involves local enterprises collaborating to help promote our charity – please contact Tracey if you are interested in finding out more about improving your corporate social responsibility [email protected].

Nicola Cooper, Marketing Manager at Newby Castleman, said: “We are incredibly proud of our staff and their fundraising efforts over the past year. Our most recent social media campaign was a huge success with posts seen online in excess of 40,000 times.

“It’s great to know that all the money raised is going to such a fantastic cause, with the end goal of ensuring that more than 300,000 people in the UK who are diagnosed with cancer every year can look forward to a brighter future.”
