ScottishPower and Cancer Research UK joined forces in 2012 with the aim of raising £5m over three years. Fast forward to today, and the partnership has raised over £20m. This incredible amount has been raised in a variety of ways, including:
Sponsorship – ScottishPower has sponsored Race for Life and the Shine Night Walk, and is also an official Stand Up To Cancer partner. Over the years, the company has built an integrated and engaging High 5 campaign to help us hit recruitment and fundraising targets for our events.
Employee engagement – ScottishPower employees get right behind our fundraising events, as well as taking part in some impressive challenges of their own. In return, we share important health information and deliver workshops to employees and suppliers on cancer prevention and early diagnosis.
'Help Beat Cancer' energy tariff – Around 20% of customers have chosen this tariff, where ScottishPower makes a donation to Cancer Research UK for every month that a customer remains on the tariff.
We're delighted that our partnership has been renewed until 2021.
This New Year, we’re celebrating with ScottishPower. They have now raised an incredible £20m towards our life-saving work and to celebrate this huge milestone, they launched 20 reasons to smile. This inspiring campaign encouraged people to share a picture of what makes them smile on Instagram. ScottishPower has been by our side since 2012 – we are so proud of this partnership and are delighted to have their continued support.
