• ACCO UK to support Climb of Life

        • ACCO UK is giving back to the community by assembling a team for the Institute for Cancer Research (ICR)’s ‘Climb for Life.’

          David Richardson (Country Manager), Helen Cocker (Channel Manager) and Victoria Stapley (Trade Marketing Manager) will represent ACCO by taking on this year’s challenge of climbing 2,960 feet to the summit of Bowfell, the sixth highest mountain in the Lake District. The aim of the team, along with others from across the industry, is to take ‘2 million steps forward in the battle against cancer’ as their trek raises both funds and awareness for cancer research.

          This will be the 13th year that the Climb of Life has supported ICR. Last year, 120 employees from the UK Business Supplies raised £103,325, which brought the total amount raised for ICR by Climb of Life to over £1 million. So far, supporters have pledged 41 per cent of this year’s £100,000 goal.

          This is the second Climb of life for David Richardson, who has also participated in two ‘Ride for Life’ events supporting the same cause. He said, “it feels great to be able to be involved in such an incredible cause and to have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. The Climb will surely be difficult, but I’m very lucky to have my colleagues alongside me, and the support of ACCO UK behind us. I’m proud to work for a company who make it their mission to give back to the community and hope we can raise plenty of donations and awareness for cancer research.” 

          Emma Carroll, Partnerships Manager, Florence Nightingale Hospice added, “over the last 3 years FNHC has developed a very valuable partnership with the team at ACCO UK in Aylesbury. Our relationship, however, runs deeper than just cash. They have worked together, under the guidance of the Charity Committee, in groups outside of their regular work teams to achieve new goals and personal targets. Their efforts have helped Florence Nightingale Hospice to continue to provide support to local families dealing with terminal and life-limiting illness. I am delighted to have got to know the team at ACCO and on behalf of Florence Nightingale Hospice Charity I would like to say a huge ‘Thank You’ from all of us.”

          The ACCO team will take on the Climb of Life Challenge on 8th November. If you would like to donate to the cause, you can do so here.
