Fundraisers nominated to be face of #GivingTuesday
We’re excited to announce that our fundraisers, Gemma and Craig Scott, have been nominated to become the UK face of #givingtuesday- the global day of giving.
Gemma and Craig, who are running 10 marathons over 2 continents to raise money for our research, are amongst 10 candidates shortlisted from across the country vying to be named the UK’s ultimate charity champion. Sadly, they’ve lost many family members to cancer, but they’ve been determined to turn their grief into action by training hard and completing all the marathons over the coming year.
The winner – which will be revealed at the start of November - will help front this year’s campaign. They will play a leading role in inspiring people across the UK to do something good on #givingtuesday.
As well as being the UK face of the campaign, the #givingtuesday champion will receive a donation to a charity of their choice and will be rewarded with a hot air balloon ride over the UK countryside.
#givingtuesday now runs in over 70 countries around the world including the US, Canada, Germany, Spain, Singapore, Australia, Tanzania, Russia and Ireland.
Good luck Gemma and Craig!
