London Luton Airport carries on its alliance with Macmillan Cancer Support

London Luton Airport has continued its alliance with Macmillan Cancer Support for another year after they experienced a very successful two years of fundraising. They managed to raise an amazing £145,000 for the charity, which beat their original target of £80,000 which they had set in their initial partnership.

The fundraiser money has been used to provide for 360 Macmillan grants in the local area. This money has been helping families pay for cancer treatment, as well as helping them cover any other costs they occur because of cancer. The staff at the airport raised the money by holding events like cake sales, collections in the terminal, an exciting Santa Dash, a Summer Solstice Runway Run as well as having a four-day charity bike ride from Paris to Amsterdam!

Macmillan Cancer Support

Community Relations Executive at London Luton Airport, Caron Hooper says, “we’re delighted to extend our partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support for another year.” He further talks about how everyone at the airport has really “thrown themselves into raising money” for such an incredible cause. He is excited about working and “supporting the invaluable work that Macmillan does in the local area” for another year.

The airport’s efforts did not go unnoticed by the Macmillan Cancer Support. During their Thank You Awards, London Luton Airport won the Internal Engagement Award. The head of corporate partnership at Macmillan praised the airport and its staff’s incredible fundraising efforts.

Macmillan’s corporate partnership manager, Richard Quaife mentioned how grateful he was and said, “without the support from partners like LLA, Macmillan would not be able to reach as many people to reduce the financial burden a cancer diagnosis can cause.” He further extends his “thank you to all the employees and passengers at Luton Airport” for all their hard work and commitment in supporting Macmillan for the past two years.
