First partnership in charity awards
FirstGroup’s three year charity partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support has been nominated for Third Sector magazine’s Business Charity Awards 2015. The operator’s association with the cause drew to a close on 31 March. It was nominated in the Award’s charity partnership category, along with entries from Boeing, E.On, Keyline and Slimming World. The awards ceremony will be held at The Brewery, Chiswell Street in London, on 19 May. FirstGroup has given £1.1m in fundraised cash and gift in kind to Macmillan Cancer Support. Prostate Cancer UK is the company’s new UK Charity of Choice partner after a recent employee vote.
