The Birmingham office of Deloitte became our Corporate partner in the autumn of 2013 when the staff voted for Cure Leukaemia. We worked with them on a number of events over the year including the Great Birmingham Run when 50 staff ran for Cure Leukaemia and many other fundraising initiatives throughout the year including ladies lunches, annual dinners and even cake sales! The relationship was so successful the staff voted for Cure Leukaemia for an unprecedented second consecutive year. In all the company raised over £100,000 and helped fund the position of one of our specialist research nurses Gill Marshall for two years.
“I thoroughly enjoyed working with James, Jackie and the Cure Leukaemia team when they were chosen as the Birmingham office’s charity partner back in 2013. I was struck by how such a small team could deliver a variety of events throughout the year whilst maintaining the partnership to such a high standard. As a result, our 700 staff took the unprecedented decision to extend the partnership for an additional year.”
