International brokers Capsicum Re and Arthur J. Gallagher (AJG) have donated £20,000 to Stacey’s Smiles, a charity that promotes awareness of childhood cancer neuroblastoma.
Capsicum Re raised half of the funds in June when it sponsored a walking marathon participated in by its staff. Twenty-five employees paced 20 miles in seven hours around the Goodwood Estate, battling rain, mud and blisters.
Brokerage giant AJG matched the £10,000 that was raised by Capsicum Re employees who completed the walkathon challenge.
“Giving back is an important part of our ethos and there is a real energy and passion within Capsicum Re for the foundation,” said Capsicum Re CEO Rupert Swallow.
“With Arthur J. Gallagher’s generous matching scheme, we have been able to donate £20,000 which we hope will be able to help the charity bring smiles and create special memories to the families it helps,” Swallow added.
Stacey’s Smiles organises memorable activities for children with neuroblastoma. The organisation links with other cancer charities and specialist children’s hospitals to identify and help patients and their families.
“On behalf of Stacey's Smiles, I wish to thank Capsicum Re and Arthur J. Gallagher for their generous donation,” said charity founder Warren Mowle.
“We are indeed grateful for their enthusiastic support, which helps us assist children and families with Neuroblastoma Cancer.”
