Property Managers Association donates £10k to us
The UK’s leading membership body representing property within retail organisations, the Property Managers Association (PMA), has donated £10,000 to the charity.
PMA appointed us as their charity of the year in 2018 to raise funds and increase awareness of the UK’s fourth most common cancer. They were inspired to partner with the charity after one of their members was diagnosed with the disease.
Patrick, age 54, based in Penarth in Cardiff, has worked in the retail property industry since 1986. For most of his career he has worked for retail companies, most notably Laura Ashley (12 years) and Primark (11 years). He was both a full and associate member of the PMA during this time.
Luke Squires, Director of Fundraising at Bowel Cancer UK, says: “We are very grateful to PMA for their generous donation. Bowel cancer is the UK’s second biggest cancer killer, but because of the support of amazing organisations like PMA we can continue to save lives and improve the quality of life of everyone affected by bowel cancer.”
Jonathan Stockham, Head of Estates at Specsavers and President of the Property Managers Association, says: “When we heard at the beginning of 2018 that one of our former members, Patrick Wymer, was diagnosed with bowel cancer we had no hesitation in choosing to support Bowel Cancer UK as our charity partner for the year. Patrick’s courage, as exemplified when he spoke to a hushed audience at our Christmas lunch in December, inspired us to raise £10,000 which we are delighted to donate to the charity today.”
