This month has been all about planning - working out what we can do to maximise our fundraising and get key stakeholders on board. We have some exciting plans and are keen to get started.
Fundraising kicks off this Valentine's Day with our "Cupcakes for a cure" event. The team, with a little help from friends, are cooking up a loving storm by baking tasty, glittery, romance-themed treats for the office to enjoy (think hearts, flowers and gingerbread people holding hands), All we ask in return is a small (or large!) donation - pictures to follow!
We are "for a cure", six enthusiastic, proactive and creative associates from CMS Cameron McKenna. Our team consists of Sophie Davies, Alexandra Kennedy, Teresa McCarthy, Priya Shah and Frances Thomas, a formidable group focussed on raising over £10,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
We will be raising money through a series of events ranging from small (but essential!) fundraisers including cake sales, dress up days and pamper days (look out for "Cake for a cure", "Dress for a cure", and "Pamper for a cure") to bigger events such as fashion swap evenings, wine tastings and our own Wimbledon (look out for "Swish for a cure", "Wine for a cure" and "Tennis for a cure").

We can't state enough how valuable your donations will be to Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research. This charity's vision is to beat blood cancer and so far their work has resulted in 9/10 children surviving the most common form of leukaemia. With our help, and with your help, we can help give Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research funds to continue their work and achieve their aim, improving the lives of thousands of people. So please, dig deep and give generously.
