We're pleased that Stick & Twist has chosen us as their first charity partner for 2021-2022. As an independent strategy house working closely with client marketing teams they want to leverage their expertise to help raise awareness of our charity and the symptoms of bowel cancer. They also want to raise funds for essential services and future research. One of their employees has so far raised over £4,500 in memory of a close friend who lost their life to the disease in 2020 and they're looking forward to making an even bigger contribution over the coming year.
Nick Baker, Founder of Stick & Twist said: "We're a people-focused and values-driven business that wants to give back to causes close to our hearts. It's important to us that we share our success as we grow, particularly with small charities who have to compete for attention and funds against some much bigger charities, in a climate where donations have overall declined due to the pandemic. This partnership is about more than raising much needed funds, it’s about leveraging our expertise to help Bowel Cancer UK tackle some of their key challenges, so in the end, fewer people succumb to this cancer and more people are able to receive their vital services."
