SRA smashes £5,000 target for charity

Employees at the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), based at The Cube in the city centre, are celebrating their success in raising over £5,000 for their adopted charity – Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research, which has a central hub in Birmingham co-ordinating treatment centres around the UK.

The charity was chosen by employees at the beginning of 2012 and during the year staff have held various fundraising events to achieve their goal.

In just one day this week, using a cake sale, a raffle and festive dress day competition, they boosted the funds by £1,348.14 taking the overall total to £5,388.

Jane Langan, SRA Contact Centre Manager and former patient said: "I am really proud of all the fundraising the team at the SRA has raised.

"It is marvellous to see such support from my colleagues and friends. I can’t thank them enough and I am hugely grateful for their contributions, however, big or small. Thank you all.”

Callum Mackay, Business Development Manager at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, said: "Thank you to everyone at the SRA who helped raise such a fantastic amount. We are entirely funded by voluntary donations so support from companies like the SRA is vital.

"We are here to beat blood cancers; we want to stop people dying from them, we want to make patients’ lives better and we want to ultimately stop people getting blood cancer.”

The six hundred employees moved to The Cube in September, from their former offices at Redditch and Leamington.
