Santander UK chooses Marie Curie Cancer Care as charity of the year 2012

Marie Curie Cancer Care has been chosen by financial services provider Santander UK as their new partner for 2012. The charity was selected in a staff vote.

The year-long partnership has a fundraising target of £500,000. The first activity will include staff taking part in a dress-down Go Yellow for Marie Curie Nurse’s Day. All of Santander’s 25,000 staff will also be challenged to raise £20 during the year. Each of them would then be funding one hour of free nursing care.

Santander staff will also be involved in supporting the charity’s Great Daffodil Appeal in March, donating items to Marie Curie’s 168 shops in a big spring clean, Blooming Great Tea Parties in the summer and Santander’s own Brain Game gala quiz.

Sheralee Morris, Santander’s Community Manager, said: “Our charity of the year fundraising relationships have grown year on year and I’m confident that this partnership will exceed all expectations.”
