Encore Personnel targets £20,000 for children's cancer charity




Spalding recruitment agency, Encore Personnel, has pledged its support to national children’s charity, Children with Cancer UK, setting a target to raise more than £20,000 over the next year.

Giving back to local charities and communities has always been part of Encore’s code and culture. Each year, the agency – which operates from its office on New Road – chooses a charity to support which is close to an employee’s heart or has had a direct impact on them or a close family member.

This year, staff chose to raise monies for Children with Cancer UK. The charity provides support for children with cancer and their families. Funding research at centres of excellence across the country, the charity works to drive up cancer survival rates and ensure effective treatments are found.

Sales director Ian Briers said: “The organisation provides a vital service to children and families, helping to combat this devastating disease. I have seen first-hand the excellent work they do and I know the difference they can make to people’s lives.

“Team members have already taken on charity challenges to raise as much money as possible. I will be running in the London Marathon on Sunday and we will see dress-down days, bake sales and more.”

Ashleigh McCluskey, Children with Cancer UK regional fundraising manager, said: “We are hugely thankful to Encore Personnel. Our supporters help us make a real difference to children’s lives and we greatly appreciate Encore’s assistance in fighting childhood cancer and ensuring more children ring the end of treatment bell.”

July will see staff take on the Peak District 50km Challenge, attempting to walk the 50km route in under 12 hours.

And in September, Ian and fellow director Chris Hockey will take on a gruelling coast to coast challenge from Whitehaven to Tynemouth, which will total 166 miles over the course of three days.

Ian added: “As a business, we understand that it is important to give back to charities and organisations that provide a much-needed service in the communities in which we operate. As part of this, we have always encouraged staff to put forward charities that have impacted them or a family or friend so we can all support a charity that we are truly passionate about.”
