UK: Inchcape UK receives ‘building a partnership’ award by Macmillan

Inchcape UK has been awarded the ‘Building a Partnership’ Award at a recent Corporate Partnership event to recognise the Group’s recent fundraising efforts for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.

The Macmillan ‘Building a Partnership’ Award is a milestone for the Group, as Inchcape UK’s flourishing partnership with the charity illustrates the Group’s commitment to building a sustainable foundation in order to raise awareness and funds to support people living with cancer across the UK.

Commenting on the award, Claire Singlehurst, Macmillan’s Director of Relationship Fundraising, said: “Our corporate partnership leadership team were really impressed by the foundations and commitment Inchcape UK have put into our partnership.

Inchcape UK worked tirelessly to embed Macmillan into their organisational culture and create fun engagement opportunities to raise money and meet business objectives. The results speak for themselves – having initially set out to raise £50,000; Inchcape employees exceeded this by 50% to raise £75,000 to support people living with cancer across the UK.

Inchcape UK stood out for us amongst stiff competition, and we’re delighted to be continuing our partnership this year”.

Inchcape UK employs around 5,500 staff and in 2016 Inchcape UK was voted the No. 1 Best Big Company to Work For in the Sunday Times Top 100.
