TCG pledges year-long support for Cancer Research UK

Managed pub and bar operator TCG has selected Cancer Research UK as its nominated charity for the next 12 months, setting a fundraising target of £70,000.

Along with co-ordinated fundraising activity across the business such as ‘bucket shakes’ on Bank Holidays and other high footfall dates, an Easter Egg Hunt and Beach Parties, each of TCG’s 75 sites will organise local events including barbecues, band nights and family fun days to support the charity.

Last year, TCG supported Help for Heroes, with its pubs and bars raising funds through a range of activities. Despite customers continuing to watch their expenditure, and poor weather on potential big fundraising days such as the Diamond Jubilee, the business managed to donate a total of £60,000 – ahead of its £50,000 target.

Chief operating officer Nigel Wright commented, “The fact that we managed to smash our fundraising goal last year speaks volumes for the enthusiasm and commitment of our pub and bar teams.

“We are confident they, and our operations and head office teams, will rise to the challenge again for Cancer Research UK, which is a charity that all our customers can relate to.”

Lucy Squance, corporate acquisition manager at Cancer Research UK, said, “We are delighted with the partnership with TCG and look forward to supporting them in their fundraising endeavours over the next year.”

Cancer Research UK pioneers life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. The charity receives no government funding for its life-saving research, so every step it makes towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated.
