My name is James Davis and I'm proud to say that I've been a supporter of various different cancer charities for years. Having lost members of my family to cancer, I have always been a passionate supporter of people and organisations who go the extra mile to raise awareness, interest and money to win the fight against cancer.
Through my time working with Wickes, I have come into contact with Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research and have been bowled over the by the dedication, enthusiasm and drive shown by this fantastic organisation to beat blood cancer.
So why set this page up?
Well, three reasons actually.
1. To help in my own small way to advertise the fantastic work that this charity does, knowing that they won't stop until blood cancer is beaten.
2. To share some of the weird and wonderful things that I've done or am going to do to raise money for charity, including tackling the three peaks in 2013, doing a tandem sky dive for the first time ever next month (8th June and did I mention I'm afraid of heights...) and sitting on the charity committee in work to help raise more money at a local and corporate level.
3. To tell you about the work I've done on CRM products this year as part of the partnership between Wickes and Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. We're selling a red bucket and red wheelbarrow and donating 50% of the profits to charity and I have the honour of being the Project Manager. In keeping with the nature of the wonderful relationship between our two organisations, this has been a real partnership, from product selection, through to delivery and marketing. I'm really proud that this project is going to deliver double the amount we raised through CRM last year, at over £100k for 2014. A really simple idea, it drives home the message for me that with a little effort, time and the help of the buying public, we can all help change the world.
So that's me...at which point I'll say thanks for viewing my profile and more importantly thanks for supporting Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research!
