With the start of 2018 comes the beginning of many new charity partnerships. Here are seven that have caught our eye this week.

Leaders & Teenage Cancer Trust
Leaders has chosen Teenage Cancer Trust as its new charity partner for 2018 and announced plans to raise £50,000 for it. The property firm will work with Teenage Cancer Trust over the next 12 months to fundraise and raise awareness of its work. The new partnership marks the end of the company’s previous partnership with Together for Short Lives that saw it raise approximately £150,000 for the children’s hospice charity over the last three years.
Boston Consulting Group & GiveOut
The Boston Consulting Group has announced its support for new charity GiveOut as a founding corporate sponsor. GiveOut launched on 17 January and will raise funds in support of global LGBTQI causes worldwide. It was founded by Elliot Vaughn, a Partner and Managing Director at the Boston Consulting Group, London and the Chair of the organisation’s Board of Trustees.
United Utilities & Macmillan Cancer Support
United Utilities employees have chosen Macmillan Cancer Support to be the company’s official charity. The water company has now entered into a three-year partnership with Macmillan, aimed at raising £250,000 as well as helping provide better services for customers. All funds raised from the charity partnership will be restricted to the North West, which means United Utilities will help support people living with cancer across the region it operates in.

Lookers Vauxhall & Barnstondale Activity Centre
Lookers Vauxhall Birkenhead has presented Barnstondale Activity Centre with the use of a 17-seater minibus free of charge throughout 2018. The charity is planning to raise funds to buy the nearly new vehicle at the end of the year when it will be given the chance to buy it for a fraction of its list price.
Our lovely friends over at @ChandosCivils have chosen us as their 2018 charity partner. This wonderful new relationship has been started with a whopping donation of £10,000! How incredibly generous. Thanks so much everyone.
