Baxters Food Group has announced their official charity partner for their 150th anniversary.
Macmillan Cancer Support will be working with the soup giant throughout the year in a bid to raise over £100,000.
The funds will support two Macmillan nurses for a year, enabling them to continue to provide invaluable specialist care and support to those living with cancer.
Staff at the company’s sites across the UK will be getting involved, with everything from daredevil sky dives and bungee jumps to more relaxing raffles and race nights being arranged to generate money.
Audrey Baxter, executive chairman at Baxters said: “What better way to mark our 150th anniversary celebrations than with the announcement of our chosen charity of the year.
“We wanted to partner with an organisation that our staff, customers and consumers would feel passionate about supporting and Macmillan Cancer Support was the ideal fit thanks to the incredible work they are doing all over the UK.”
Fundraising manager Laura Foreman said: “We are incredibly grateful to Baxters for supporting us as they celebrate their 150th birthday.
“At Macmillan, we know cancer can affect everything. We’re here to help people live their best life, no matter what, but we can’t do it without the amazing people and firms who fundraise for us.”
