ABP and the army pull together for Macmillan Cancer Relief
June 12, 2014
When it comes to brawn and a will to win it pays to have the army on your side, which is why Associated British Ports teamed up with the 22 Signals Regiment for a charity tug of war.
ABP sponsored the regimental team in the 27th annual Macmillan Cancer Relief Lords vs Commons Tug of War in
The event, adjudicated by the Tug of War Association, raised £141,000 for Macmillan, a new record total which will fund a new support centre for the charity. Since its inception the event has raised £3m for Macmillan.
A spokesperson from Macmillan said: “Macmillan’s Parliamentary Tug of War gets together politicians of all persuasions to pull together and put their weight behind a great cause. The money raised will help Macmillan to make sure no one faces cancer alone.”
