Connecting with the local community and acting as a socially responsible organisation is something that is incredibly important to us as a business. We have always been extremely active in working alongside charities, both at a national and local branch level, and as a result, we are very proud to partner with Cancer Research UK.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading independent organisation dedicated to cancer studies. It carries out scientific research to help prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. It has discovered new ways of beating the disease, that together have saved hundreds of thousands of lives around the world. Cancer survival rates have doubled in the last forty years, and these figures continue to improve all the time.
As part of this exciting partnership, Hamptons International is committed to raising awareness and fundraising to help Cancer Research UK continue its life saving work. We will be getting involved in an array of exciting national events throughout the year, as well as organising local activities, to help us reach our ambitious target.
This is a partnership that is close to many of our hearts. By working together we can make a significant contribution towards fighting Cancer.
