Cure Leukaemia’s charity partner The Binding Site raised over £1000 from their festive ‘Cure Leukaemia Week’!
The global company held a host of fundraising events including a Christmas cake sale, a seasonal quiz, raffle and Christmas jumper day. Cure Leukaemia would like to thank Emma Ramsay and everyone in their Charity Committee for making the week a success.
The £1000 will be worth £10,000 in potentially life-saving drugs so it shows how every penny raised really can help save lives.
The week’s fundraising further strengthens the partnership which has blossomed since it was announced Cure Leukaemia would be their official charity for the year back in November.
The Binding Site are the first of the charity’s partners to introduce payroll donations from their staff and the company recently took part in ‘Wear It Red Day’ along with OGL Computer and Rudell’s jewellers, an event that raised a further £400 for Cure Leukaemia.
The International Company is committed to developing innovative immunodiagnostic procedures with extensive expertise in antibody specificity technology, which allows clinicians and laboratory staff the tools to significantly improve diagnosis and management of patients.
For over twenty-five years The Binding Site have specialised in producing highly sensitive and highly specific antibodies used for the detection of certain cancers and other serious disorders.
Along with the Birmingham headquarters the Binding Site also has offices in Germany, The USA, Belgium, Spain, Italy, The Czech Republic and France and the global company continues to grow year on year.
Charles de Rohan, CEO of The Binding Site in Birmingham, said:
“We are very proud to be supporting a local charity that is very close to our hearts. Similar to Cure Leukaemia, our business is all about helping save the lives of patients through providing innovative, accessible blood tests. We have already seen the excellent, ground-breaking work that Cure Leukaemia help facilitate at the Clinical Centre For Haematology and we’re very excited that it will be the focus of our fundraising activities this year.”
