We’re delighted to announce that we’ve recently become a member of the Laura Crane Youth Cancer Trust’s ‘Fight Club’! But no, we’re not about to step into the boxing ring. We’re helping teenage cancer patients in their battle against cancer.
The charity’s 20th anniversary in 2016 initiated the creation of the Fight Club, which was formed specifically to encourage corporate businesses to support the cause. Since then, over 20 companies joined the club – which helps 13-24 year olds throughout the whole of the UK.
So, here at Applegate Properties, we decided to join the front line of this battle, by becoming a ‘Fight Club’ member and donating a monthly amount to the trust. This contribution will go towards providing world class research into the cure of cancer, as well as supporting the patients themselves.
Amy Wray, our managing director, commented on why she chose to join ‘Fight Club’: “The trust supports young people with cancer, which is incredible. They do amazing work, and supporting charities is something that I feel very passionately about. When I had a chat with them, I knew I must do more to help.”
Raising money and giving to local charities is not a new thing for us at Applegate Properties. As a member of the 99er club, we’re also keen supporters of Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice.
We’ve taken part in family fun days; spread some Halloween cheer with a pumpkin carving competition; held events such as a cake sale, which helped to raise £170 for the charity; and organised a onsie walk around Holmfirth – which proved to be a lot of fun and raised £500 in the process!
Donating a monthly figure to Fight Club is another way that we can continue to support children with illnesses and their families.
So, are you a corporation that wants to give back to the community? Join the battle against cancer and become a member of Fight Club! To find out more follow this link.
