Help us to raise £5000 this year
At Avanti we do as much for charity as we can. Every year we choose a charity of the year to support. We hold events throughout the year to raise as much money as possible for our chosen charity. We are extremely grateful to our clients for supporting our charity through our ‘Donate Now’ button. 100% of your donations go directly to the charity.
This year our chosen charity is Fight Bladder Cancer
Fight Bladder Cancer was founded to raise awareness of bladder cancer, provide support and to campaign for vital research. By supporting the charity we think that more lives can be saved with early diagnosis and better treatment.
The charity is run by a bladder cancer survivor Andrew Winterbottom. Andrew noted “10,000 people are diagnosed with bladder cancer each year in the UK, in fact bladder cancer is the fifth most common cancer in the Western world. The majority of people diagnosed with bladder cancer are over 60 years old so it’s fantastic that Avanti is helping us raise awareness of the disease”.
Cancer touches many lives, young and old. Sadly bladder cancer symptoms are often missed because bladder cancer is rarely publicised in the media.
Glen Smith Avanti CEO commented “Our staff decided to support a cancer charity again this year. Fight Bladder Cancer was a natural choice for us. One of our staff members (Tracy) was diagnosed with bladder cancer two years ago. She discovered Fight Bladder Cancer early on and still gets tremendous support from the group. Tracy is still receiving treatment and she is delighted that the charity will benefit”.
Over the years we have raised in excess of £15,000 for charities including PARC (a play centre for children with special needs), Red Nose Day, Age UK, Cancer Research, British Heart Foundation and many more. So please continue to help us to help this special charity.
