Be Wiser Insurance Raised £10,547.80 for Macmillan Cancer SupportIn the past 12 months, Be Wiser staff and business partners have organised events to fundraise for MacMillan including a corporate race and golf day, a May Day fete and Bake Off, a coffee morning, a Christmas jumper day and six staff took part in ‘Brave the Shave’.

“We were delighted to fundraise for Macmillan Cancer Support who were our chosen charity for 2015. It was great to raise such a massive total so thanks must go to all the Be Wiser employees and our partners that came together for this worthwhile charity. We have run a number of events, both corporate and employee led, which have seen us smash our fundraising target for 2015,” said Vicki Beatons, Be Wiser Director.

All staff are now nominating their chosen charity for 2016. “The total raised by the Be Wiser team has been amazing, they have arranged various events and activities to support Macmillan,” said Rachel Docherty of Macmillan Cancer Support. “This donation will make a huge difference to local people affected by cancer. In 2015 we gave over 500 people living in Hampshire grants totalling over £100,000 and this fantastic donation would be able to support 35 average Macmillan grants. This grant supports people affected by cancer and their families with everyday needs such as heating costs, travel to hospital, respite break and so much more.”
