Our partnership with Coral has gone from strength to strength and we are delighted that, thanks to the efforts of their amazing staff, they have already hit their £500k target - but they’re not stopping yet!
Andy Hornby, Chief Executive at Coral said:
“At the start of our partnership with Children with Cancer UK last year, we set out to raise at least £500,000 for this fantastic cause.  I am delighted to announce that, thanks to the efforts of so many of you, this month that milestone was reached. 

We also pledged to support Children with Cancer UK until the end of 2015, and that remains the case, so it would be great if we could take the total up to £1,000,000 before the end of the year, a target that is well within our reach, particularly as the proceeds from the scratch cards sold in shops are included in the amount raised now.

Every penny we raise makes a difference to the lives of those young people affected by cancer, so let’s all continue with the great work we’ve seen so far and keep that total rising”.

Caroline Blakely, Chief Executive at Children with Cancer UK said:
“We’re enormously proud of our charity partnership with Coral and we have been overwhelmed by the generosity of staff and customers alike. They have raised a fantastic amount of money – and their fundraising activities are still going strong. 

These vital funds are being put to good use immediately, helping to find treatments that are less harsh on young bodies and cures that mean more young lives can be saved.  Our heartfelt thanks to all the team at Coral."
