CBRE announces new charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support
Global real estate advisor CBRE has today announced its new UK charity partner as Macmillan Cancer Support, one of the largest British charities that provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer.
The new partnership, which will be in place for at least two years with a target of raising half a million pounds, will focus on increasing the provision of services that will reduce social isolation and provide financial security for those living with cancer.
In the UK, one in two people will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime, and alongside physical and mental health fears, cancer can cost people their jobs, financial security and even their homes. The money raised will fund eight Macmillan Support Line employees to provide vital online support to over 22,000 people with emotional, financial or work-related concerns. In addition, CBRE will activate its colleagues through pro bono work and volunteering.
Lynda Thomas, Chief Executive, Macmillan Cancer Support said “We are delighted to be working with CBRE and excited about what the next few years will bring. Our partnership aims to tackle loneliness and financial hardship together. We will be able to help thousands more people with much needed emotional and financial support. It has never been more important to be there for people living with cancer and through this partnership we will do whatever it takes to be there for everyone from the day of their diagnosis and beyond.”
