Oct. 14, 2014 - PRLog -- 14th October; London: Over the summer, H&T Pawnbrokers (http://www.handtpawnbrokers.co.uk/) pledged their support to Cancer Research UK (http://www.cancerresearchuk.org/) to raise money in aid of the charity’s life-saving work. Over 185 H&T Pawnbrokers stores and more than 1,000 members of staff took part in a fundraising summer of ‘fun and fatigue’.

A nationwide baton relay took place with staff running, jumping, cycling and dancing between H&T stores. Locally, the stores held a wide range of activities such as bake-offs, ‘come dine with me’ competitions, fancy dress and themed family fun days, quizzes and bric-a-brac sales.

John Nichols, H&T Pawnbrokers CEO, said: ‘Everyone at H&T was enthusiastic about raising money for this charity that helps so many people. We are delighted to announce that we have exceeded our original fundraising target of £20,000 for Cancer Research UK, and we hope that this contribution will help to support the charity’s aim of beating cancer sooner.’

Cancer Research UK is dedicated to saving lives through research. The charity’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured and its pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives.

Carol Pezzella from the Volunteer Fundraising team at Cancer Research UK visited the H&T offices in Surrey. She said: “The H&T team demonstrated such passion for their fundraising and we’re extremely grateful for the time and effort invested by every member of staff. Every step we make towards beating cancer sooner relies on every pound donated, so we’d like to thank everyone at H&T Pawnbrokers for their support. All funds raised will go towards the charity’s research to beat over 200 types of cancer, helping to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
