Hoburne Doublebois raises thousands for Cancer Research UK
Hoburne Doublebois in Liskeard has presented Cancer Research UK with a cheque for more than £5,000.
The team at Hoburne Doublebois chose Cancer Research UK as its nominated charity for 2019 and initially pledged to raise £1,500.
Throughout last year, employees, holiday homeowners and holidaymakers staying at the Cornwall-based park all helped to raise thousands with numerous fundraisers and charity initiatives taking place, including golf days and cake sales.
Hoburne Holidays also supported the charity through a holiday booking donation scheme. The company donated £1 to Cancer Research UK for every holiday booked during 2019.
Cancer Research UK doesn’t receive any funding from the government; with every penny being donated, their progress relies solely on the generosity of the public.
Commenting on the donation, Hoburne Doublebois Park Manager, Liz Griffiths said:
“We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and generously donated throughout the year – colleagues, family, friends and our wonderful holiday homeowners and holidaymakers. It is not easy to raise funds these days and we are thrilled to have raised £5,891. Knowing that this money will really make a difference in the fight against cancer makes it all worthwhile. Together we have made a difference!”
Nikki Collins, Senior Local Fundraising Manager, South West Cancer Research UK, added: “I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Hoburne Doublebois for choosing to support Cancer Research UK. Your generosity will make a big difference to the lives of people diagnosed with cancer across the UK, including the 3,700 cancer patients diagnosed each year in Cornwall.
“Our 4,000 research scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK are making ground-breaking discoveries because of the support of organisations like yours. With your help, we will reach three in four people surviving cancer by 2034, giving hope to cancer patients and their families across the UK and here in Cornwall.”
