Slimming World’s Marketing Manager, Catherine Fox, says: “This award is a thank you to all Slimming World members, Consultants, Team Developers, managers in the field and staff across the organisation who were part of last year’s record-breaking campaign – and who have been part of our incredible fundraising since 2013. Every piece of clothing, pair of shoes and accessory collected has helped make a difference by raising money to help fund Cancer Research UK’s life-saving work. This news comes at a difficult time for charities and communities and, so, is lovely news to hear in a challenging climate.
“We’re really proud of our partnership and the money raised through it helps fund research into cancers related to obesity with the goal to accelerate the understanding of the links between weight and cancer. By sharing information and expertise, the partnership builds on this understanding and reaches new audiences with important messaging.”
Caro Evans, Director of Partnerships at Cancer Research UK, says: “We’re delighted that the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw won ‘Best Fundraising Campaign’ at PR Week’s Purpose Awards. We’re incredibly proud of our partnership and want to say a huge thank you to the dedicated Slimming World members, Consultants and staff who have given their generous support to the campaign over the years.
“We won’t stop working towards making progress for people affected by cancer and the money raised through the Big Slimming World Clothes Throw will help us continue our life-saving work.”
