Two leading cancer charities – The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity and Macmillan Cancer Support – are set to benefit from a partnership with the Arora Group which will see them receive a contribution from each guest bill across all of the group’s hotels.
According to Macmillan, nearly 1 in 2 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. This initiative by the Arora Group, which will be rolled out across the group’s eight hotels, will support the life-changing work of these two charities.
Arora guests will be asked to donate £1 through their hotel bill. All donations will be divided equally between the two charities and, with 4,000 hotel rooms across the group, this initiative will enable the two organisations to continue to fund the best possible treatment and care for cancer patients in the UK, as well as research that will benefit patients around the world.
Paul Glazier, of Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer, and sadly, this figure is rising every day. At Macmillan, we provide emotional, physical, medical and financial help for those who need it, when they need it most. It’s thanks to the support of companies like the Arora Group and its guests that we’re able to continue doing this, so thank you.”
Antonia Dalmahoy, Director of The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity, said: “We are hugely grateful to The Arora Group for giving us this opportunity, as the generosity of the public, and the support of the business community is vital to the work that we do. This initiative will allow The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity to continue funding state-of-the-art equipment, groundbreaking research, leading treatment and care, and the development of the very best patient environments at The Royal Marsden.”
Life with cancer is still your life and Macmillan is there to help people live it. The professionals at Macmillan support during treatment, help with work and money worries, and listen when people need to talk about their feelings.
The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity raises money to support The Royal Marsden, a world-leading cancer centre. The nurses, doctors and research teams at The Royal Marsden provide expert care, and develop treatments which are used across the UK and around the world.
Sunita Arora from Arora Group, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the work of two of the UK’s foremost cancer charities. Cancer is an issue that sadly touches many people’s lives, but together we can help these two charities continue their life-saving work.”
