Barker Ross celebrates 25 years and pledges £25k to CHILDREN with CANCER UK
Multi-recruiter, Barker Ross has pledged to raise £25,000 for the charity, CHILDREN with CANCER UK as it celebrates its 25th Anniversary in 2013.
CHILDREN with CANCER UK, which is also celebrating its 25th anniversary, is the leading national charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer through research and remains both focused and determined to eradicate all childhood cancers.
As well as funding live-saving research the charity also funds welfare projects including hospice care and family accommodation and raises awareness of childhood cancer to protect more children and to improve the lives of young cancer patients today and for future generations.
Founder and chief executive of Barker Ross, Paul Ross says: “For 25 years we’ve grown the business as we have been able to give clients the people they want. From our roots in the Midlands, we now have 12 offices across the UK and are on target to turnover over £50 million by 2015.”
Pippa Gough, Head of Corporate at CHILDREN with CANCER UK said “We are thrilled to be celebrating our anniversary alongside Barker Ross and are looking forward to being involved with some of their exciting plans for the year ahead. Without such fantastic support we wouldn't be able to continue our vital research to help more children and save young lives."
Established in 1988, Barker Ross quickly established a reputation as one of the UK’s leading construction and industrial specialists. The group has become one of the first ports of call for clients needing temporary and contract staff in areas such as food processing, agriculture, construction and energy. The group also includes Cardea, a recruitment business serving the health and social care sectors.
All employees at Barker Ross will be working on fund raising events, throughout the UK, with one national event planned in the winter.
