Super support from Centerprise International for Ark Cancer Centre Charity

Staff at award-winning Basingstoke-based Centerprise International have pledged to use their fundraising muscle to help fund a unique local cancer treatment centre.

Employees at the top-performing IT company, which is based on Hampshire International Business Park in Chineham, voted to support three charities in 2016 – and 80 per cent of their fundraising efforts will support Ark Cancer Centre Charity

Sam Lailey, Group HR and Support Director at Centerprise International, said the company’s charity committee and staff will be delighted to support Ark Cancer Centre Charity, Help for Heroes and MCCH, which helps people manage mental wellbeing challenges, during 2016.

Sam said: “These are three very good causes, and the team are looking forward to taking on various fundraising activities to support them.”

Group Finance Director Sharon Allen kicked off the fundraising for Ark Cancer Centre Charity in a big way when she lost her locks for Christmas by taking part in a sponsored head-shave on December 23.

Sharon, who has drummed up more than £6,500 in sponsorship support, said: “I'm never going to climb a mountain or run a marathon but I wanted to do this simple thing to raise money for a fantastic charity.” 

To mark the launch of Centerprise’s year of fundraising, Ark Cancer Centre Charity trustee Merv Rees visited the company’s offices to thank chairman Rafi Razzak and his staff for their support, and to tell them more about the charity and cancer treatment centre project.

Merv said: “I am very grateful to the Centerprise team for choosing Ark Cancer Centre Charity as one of their good causes to raise money for in 2016. This significant show of support will help to raise vital awareness of, and funds for, the charity and cancer centre project.”
