Press Release   •   Feb 14, 2011 11:11 GMT

The Belvoir Sheffield office headed by Rick Flay on Campo Lane is amongst other offices in the national Belvoir network to pledge its support for ‘We are Macmillan Cancer Support’, as the charity

celebrates its centenary this year.


Rick Flay, Director at Belvoir, the leading letting agents in Sheffield, said: “This is the first time that Belvoir has adopted a national charity and after very careful consideration, we decided to help Macmillan because of its fantastic work in supporting and improving the lives of people affected by cancer.


“Throughout the year we will be staging a series of events, promotions and other

fundraising activities, both as Belvoir Sheffield and also in conjunction with the Macmillan

Fundraising Team who stage a wide range of organised events throughout the entire



“I hope that our landlord and tenant clients, suppliers and friends in our local community

will join with our staff in raising as much money as we possibly can in 2011.Cancer affects so many people, one in three people in the UK will be diagnosed at some point in their lives and there are two million people currently living with cancer.


“Macmillan is expert at providing practical, medical and financial support to cancer

sufferers and their families,” Rick added.


Belvoir Sheffield director, Rick Flay, said that the company‟s charity drive was

launched in conjunction with a ‘Go Green Day’ on Tuesday 1 February 2011.


Rick, from Belvoir who specialise in Property to rent in Sheffield, added: “We decorated the office, the staff all wore green and we sold green iced cup cakes to those who came in during the day.


“Towards the end of last year, Belvoir set up its own charity committee to look at ways in

which as many of our offices as possible could support a charity with both a strong

national and local community presence.


“After extensive and thorough discussion amongst people drawn from all areas of our

business, we reached the unanimous decision to back Macmillan because of the type of

work it does and because its support of cancer victims, their carers, families and friends

knows no bounds.


“Anyone can fall victim to Cancer and when, unfortunately, some people do, Macmillan,

through its years of expertise and excellent network of outreach workers and carers,

helps to relieve some of the emotional stresses and other practical problems.


“Every Belvoir office is at the heart of its local community and they will be reaching out to

raise as much funding as possible throughout the coming year,” he added.


Gemma Shaw, fundraising manager at Macmillan said: “A huge and heartfelt thank you

goes out to Belvoir for choosing Macmillan Cancer Support. The help Macmillan

provides, from nurses to financial aid, is funded by generous donations from the public,

so each and every penny raised through this partnership really will make a difference to

those who are affected by cancer. We look forward to working with Belvoir and the Go

Green day is a fantastic way to start!”
