The management consulting firm TORI Global has chosen children and young people’s cancer support charity CLIC Sargent as its new charity partner.
The TORI team was inspired to support the charity as its specialist CLIC Sargent Nurses supported Ben, the son of Nigel Crutchley, a close friend of the firm, throughout his treatment for a brain tumour.
Sadly Ben died in 2012 aged just nine-years-old. Nigel and his family set up the ‘Benny Boy Crutchley’ fund in his memory, and have pledged to raise £1million for CLIC Sargent. Now, the funds raised by TORI Global are set to take the family closer to their goal.
Nigel said: “Every day 10 families are told that their child has cancer.
I am committed to raising money for CLIC Sargent, which does such a fantastic job of supporting families like ours.
Peter Mann, chairman of TORI Global, said: “The Crutchley family had incredible support from the charity and have done so much through their own fundraising to improve the lives of others in a similar situation to date. This is our way of showing our support for a fantastic cause.”
The TORI team raised £50,000 for its previous charity partner, the Samaritans.
