Editions Financial trek to success and raise staggering amount for Worldwide Cancer Research
Employees at Editions Financial, a content marketing agency based in Edinburgh, have raised a fantastic £6,360.50 for Worldwide Cancer Research to allow the charity to continue funding and discovering pioneering research projects.
Ten staff members across the organisation teamed up to take on TrekFest – a 50km walk through the night in the Peak District. Not only did the team all complete the challenge, two members even ran the whole route which is an achievement in itself!
The team originally set a fundraising target of £5,000 and have far exceeded this thanks to their determination and devotion to Worldwide Cancer Research.
Since 1979 the charity has invested over £183 million directly into cancer research and funded 1,817 projects for 1,120 researchers in 34 countries.
Only resting their sore feet for a moment, the team at Editions Financial were off fundraising again at a ceilidh and auction evening they organised for clients, family and friends.
Using the agency’s budding talents, staff member Jamie Graham also took on a unique fundraising challenge, writing 24 stories in 24 hours. He only found out the subject for the story seconds before he wrote each one and has since raised an impressive £600 with more to come.
Rowan Morrison, Managing Director at Editions Financial, said: “We are thrilled at how much we have raised for Worldwide Cancer Research and would like to thank everyone who took part in the challenge, attended the ceilidh and donated to our fundraising total.
“I am so proud of the team for giving such a huge amount of their time and dedication to support a charity close to all of our hearts. We have followed its contribution to cancer research over the years, and understand the importance of funding science in order to develop better outcomes for patients in the years to come.”
Worldwide Cancer Research relies on public donations - without this dedication and support from our generous supporters, like the staff at Editions Financial, the pioneering projects we fund and discover would simply not happen.
