Our latest challenge - On the Road to Recovery
At NCC Group we believe in supporting charitable work and encourage staff to get involved with volunteering and fundraising and have chosen The Christie Charitable Fund for our corporate charity.
In 2013 we launched an ambitious new campaign to raise £1million for The Christie charity by April 2014. The funds will be used to introduce a new mobile chemotherapy unit for the North West region, enabling patients to receive treatment closer to home.
The 'On The Road to Recovery campaign' has included a series of fundraising activities including a ruthless cycling challenge in September and a star-studded comedy event in October.
The 'On the Road' cycling challenge saw a team of 12 local business leaders tackle 5 iconic stages of the Tour De France back to back, covering 650km over the course of five days.
The challenge raised an amazing £220,000 for the campaign.
