More than 400 colleagues from both businesses, based throughout the North of England and Southern Scotland, voted to support Macmillan through 2014/ 15.

Fred Story, founder of both Story Homes and Story Contracting said:  “Our businesses are growing and expanding geographically and as such we wanted to choose a more national charity to support this year. Colleagues were asked to vote for the charity they wanted to support and now that we have collectively selected Macmillan, we will be putting our heads together to come up with some exciting and fun ways to raise as much money as possible for such a good cause.”

Colleagues will be encouraged to participate in national fundraising challenges organized by Macmillan as well as smaller local and personal events organized by individuals, teams or groups. Fundraisers organised in the past for other charities have included cake sales, zip wire challenges, quiz nights, raffles and dress down days.

Sue McDonald, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Cumbria said: “We are delighted that Story Homes and Story Contracting have chosen to support Macmillan for the next 12 months. I am looking forward to supporting them in their fundraising efforts to help ensure that no-one faces cancer alone.”

Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, medical and financial support for those affected by cancer and pushes for better cancer care for sufferers and their loved ones throughout the UK. The charity aims to improve the lives of people affected by cancer and offer support and advice to carers, family and friends.
