PayPoint has announced a new partnership with Children with Cancer UK, a leading charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer.
The two-year collaboration will see PayPoint shift its fundraising focus towards the charity and support events such as Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September. In addition, the retail services and technology provider has formed a team of employees to take part in this year’s London Marathon to raise awareness and funds for the charity.
PayPoint’s partnership with Children with Cancer UK will help to fund research projects that increase understanding of childhood cancer and improve treatments. The pioneering programs are dedicated to unlocking kinder treatments for children; tailored to childhood cancers, so the youngest, most vulnerable patients are spared the drugs and procedures developed for adults. Their vision is a world where every child survives cancer.
Nick Wiles, Chief Executive at PayPoint, said:
We’re proud to be partnering with Children with Cancer UK, a charity that plays a crucial role in the fight against childhood cancer. We hope that any funds raised through our partnership will support children with cancer and their families, and make a meaningful difference for those in need.
Jo Elvin, CEO of Children with Cancer UK, said:
We are delighted to be PayPoint’s chosen charity. We’re incredibly touched by the company’s clear passion for engaging with our cause, and excited for what promises to be two years of meaningful and impactful collaborations.
