Matalan, Birmingham will be raising funds for blood cancer charity throughout 2016. It has entered two boats for the Brindleyplace Dragonboat Race on Saturday June 18th with team members taking part and fundraising from stores across the country.
The retailer, that prides itself on supplying the highest quality clothing and homeware at the lowest price is aiming to raise over £10,000 from the Dragonboat Race with further support for Cure Leukaemia from Matalan’s Birmingham branch throughout the year.
As an official partner of Cure Leukaemia, Matalan, Birmingham will be holding in store events and fun fundraising initiatives to raise vital funds for Cure Leukaemia.
Store manager Rachel Grainger said:
“Cure Leukaemia is a fantastic charity that directly supports patients battling this horrible disease and we are proud to support a charity that benefits people right here in the Midlands. We are all looking forward to the Brindleyplace Dragonboat Race and we’re already thinking of fun, innovative ways to raise funds in our store in Aston.
Matalan’s ethos is to provide the best quality for families at the lowest price and we are delighted to have been welcomed into the Cure Leukaemia family.”
Cure Leukaemia’s Head of Corporate Partnerships Jackie Kelly said:
“To have such a well respected and influential brand such as Matalan supporting Cure Leukaemia emphasises how the charity has grown in recent years.
I am sure Matalan will bring energy and fun to their fundraising and we look forward to working closely with them in 2016.
Every penny raised will help save lives and hasten progress towards finding a cure for this terrible disease.”
