Helping to raise awareness through partnerships
by Traveleads | January 23, 2019 | CSR
Henderson Insurance Brokers in association with Breast Cancer Awareness recently arranged a charity luncheon to help draw attention to the fact that breast cancer is still the most common type of cancer in the UK. Regular testing and screenings can lead to earlier detection of breast cancer, which is associated with higher long-term survival rates.
Traveleads were invited to attend the event and were represented by Elaine Holmes, Managing Director (Pictured right) who described the event as ‘A fantastic opportunity to raise awareness and funds, to help all of those affected by this terrible disease’.
Olympic gold medal winner Nicola Adams MBE (Pictured left) Swapped the boxing ring for the dinner table, in her role as guest speaker for the afternoon and delivered a wonderfully fascinating insight into the role of women in sports. Highly engaging with a passion for a cause she is clearly very committed to, she really was a ‘knock-out’. Nicola won the gold medal for Great Britain at the London2012 Olympics and was the first woman to win an Olympic boxing title, she is currently the reigning Olympic Games, Commonwealth Games and European Games champion at flyweight.
Henderson Insurance Brokers very kindly agreed to match all contributions made on the day, enabling the event to raise a very commendable £3,440.00 for the charity.
