The TORI Global 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.
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.”
So far TORI Global has held a 12-hour static bike ride in Canary Wharf shopping centre which raised over £5,000 and a charity race day at Chepstow Racecourse which raised an incredible £20,000.
TORI staff have been running and cycling hard to support CLIC Sargent through a variety of runs and challenges and will be throwing themselves into lots of activities throughout the year including their graduate team taking on the Three Peaks Challenge.
CLIC Sargent Account Manager Sam Scott said: “We are so pleased TORI Global chose to support us and help stop cancer destroying young lives.
"The staff at TORI are amazing and we can’t wait to see what fundraising they get up to next!”
