Our corporate partners
On 12 September 2016 we attended the star-studded 12th annual BGC Charity Day with our patron, actor Tom Hardy. Celebrities joined the BGC brokers on the trading floor and spent a number of hours chatting on the phones and assisting with multi-million pound deals. Every year, BGC Partners and Cantor Fitzgerald, in conjunction with the Cantor Fitzgerald Relief Fund, commemorate their friends and colleagues, who died on September 11 2001 and donate 100% of their revenue from one day to a range of different charities.
We are delighted to be chosen to be the charity partners for blubolt this year. blubolt are a close-knit team of eCommerce professionals based in Bath and we were chosen as ours is a cause which is very close to their hearts. Across the year the blubolt team are planning a series of campaigns and events from bake sales, runs and quiz nights to even the chance to “gunge a blubolt-er in slime” to raise vital funds to stop bowel cancer.
We’re delighted that Cantel (UK) Limited has announced us as their Charity of the Year 2017. This is the first time that Cantel (UK) Limited has partnered with a charity to raise funds and awareness. The global organisation delivers a diverse range of procedural and infection control products for endoscopy departments to reduce infection and increase patient safety.
We are excited to announce that we have been chosen as Catalyst Inc’s charity partner for the next three years. Catalyst Inc were inspired to partner with Bowel Cancer UK after taking part in a Row-a-Marathon event in June 2017 in Belfast in support of our work. The charity was also chosen because a former colleague has been diagnosed with the disease. Shauna Collins, Associate Director of HR at Catalyst Inc, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Bowel Cancer UK for the next three years. The Charity was the overwhelming choice of our staff and we are looking forward to working with Bowel Cancer UK to raise vital funds and, just as importantly, to raise awareness of bowel cancer and to help to educate more people about the symptoms.”
We are delighted to be chosen as EM Imaging charity partner. The clinical phase biotechnology company based in Edinburgh are aiming to raise £20,000 this year. To reach this target employees will be participating in #RowAMarathon in June and the Edinburgh Half Marathon. EM Imaging’s mission like ours is to help improve patient outcomes in bowel cancer and we can’t wait to see what this year brings
We are thrilled to have been chosen as charity of the year by the Property Managers Association (PMA) who will be raising funds for us at their annual Christmas lunch. During Bowel Cancer Awareness Month in April 2018, the PMA have helped to highlight the story of Patrick Wymer, former PMA member and Bowel Cancer UK and Beating Bowel Cancer supporter, who has had to retire in January due to ill health. Patrick, age 53, based in Penarth in Cardiff, has worked in the retail property industry since 1986. Around Easter 2017 Patrick began to experience mild but persistent stomach pains and visited his GP. It soon emerged, after some visits to A&E, that he had to have an emergency operation to remove a large tumour from the bowel and was given a stoma. Following analysis of the tumour and a scan, it was confirmed that the tumour was cancerous and that the disease had spread beyond the bowel to the liver and the lungs. Patrick was told he had incurable stage 4 bowel cancer and has been undergoing a long series of chemotherapy which is still continuing. We are looking forward to working with the PMA to raise money towards our life-saving work to fund the highest quality research and essential information support services that will save lives.
Yakult has kindly contributed to the production of our health promotion materials for several years and are great supporters of our work.
“Bowel Cancer UK works to save lives and improve the quality of life for everyone affected by bowel cancer. Here at Yakult we are happy to be able to support this vital work as Bowel Cancer UK celebrate their 30th anniversary and continue their ground breaking work.” Hiroaki Yoshimura, Yakult UK Ltd
