Newby Castleman use the power of social media to support Hope Against Cancer

Leading firm of chartered accountants, Newby Castleman, has thrown its support behind Hope Against Cancer, encouraging users on social media to do the same by donating 10p, at no cost to them, with the click of a button.

The firm has set an ambitious target of 10,000 likes / retweets for its posts with the aim of increasing awareness of Hope Against Cancers tireless work at the same time as raising funds. Follow @NewbyCastleman on Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn where the campaign is set to launch on Monday 10th July!

Newby Castleman nominated Hope Against Cancer as its Charity of the Year in November 2016, and has since worked closely on fundraising ideas.

Nicola Cooper, Marketing Manager at Newby Castleman, explained: “We are proud to be working with a charity that plays such a vital role in the fight against cancer right here in Leicester.

“We have set a target of 10,000 likes / retweets for our posts, which we think is achievable – and if we reach it, not only will thousands of people across Leicestershire be made aware of the charity and its work, but we will also have raised an additional £1,000 to help fund that vital research.

“This is just one of a number of ways in which we are fundraising for Hope Against Cancer this year. Keep an eye on our social media feeds throughout the year ahead to find out how you can help us to support them further.”
