Fundraising for local charities is extremely important to Lyons Davidson. At the end of each year, each office selects a charity to raise funds for over the course of the year ahead. As well as raising money and being great fun, the events call upon the generosity, ingenuity and dedication of everyone who works for us.
Chosen charities for each 2018 will be announced shortly.
Bristol: Macmillan Cancer Support. In 2017, the Bristol offices raised £7,818.85 for Macmillan.
Macmillan provides specialist healthcare, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. The charity is also involved in the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care.
