Insurance broker selects Macmillan Cancer Relief as charity of the year

National commercial insurance broker Warren Hill is celebrating its 40th anniversary by choosing Macmillan Cancer Relief as charity of the year. The company’s directors and staff will mark the anniversary by committing themselves to raising money for the charity throughout 2003.

Warren Hill is joining Macmillan’s major national events such as the Macmillan Mile campaign in May and the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning in September. Staff will also be taking part in a variety of events such as sponsored abseiling, race nights, fun runs, dress-up days (where staff pay to wear evening dress at the office for the day) and much more. Macmillan will also be holding fundraising events on Valentine’s Day, Bonfire Night, Halloween, and other traditional celebrations.

As well as organising and holding a series of fundraising events the company will also involve its customers and insurance company partners. For example it will send birthday cards to them all, including a request for a donation.

Judy Beard, Director of Fundraising at Macmillan said: “We are delighted to be working with Warren Hill and wish them great success on their 40th Birthday. Their support will

enable us to provide more specialist cancer services for people living with cancer.”
