Yesterday, on 1 October 2015, World Child Cancer benefitted from the largest fundraising campaign of the year at Deutsche Bank. The annual campaign, known as ‘One Day’, offers Bank staff the opportunity to donate one day’s salary from their payroll, which is divided evenly between the Charities of the Year – for 2015, World Child Cancer and Sparks. So, what happened on the day? Well, World Child Cancer staff wound back their alarm clocks to arrive in time for a speedy early morning briefing and coffee, before heading out to greet Deutsche Bank staff at offices across London and Birmingham, armed only with a t-shirt, a smile and bags of branded popcorn. Following this early morning welcome, staff then linked up with a variety of celebrity ambassadors representing both charities, including Matthew Pinsent, Matt Dawson, Baroness Floella Benjamin, Jon Culshaw, David Haye and Eddie the Eagle to name a few, who joined us on floor walks across the various offices. Staff posed for their photo with these famous faces – but not before they had scanned their badge committing to donate their day’s salary. The dedicated and energetic staff team at World Child Cancer were tireless in their efforts, sprinting around with popcorn deliveries, t-shirts, celebrities and occasionally an espresso on the run – spurred by the knowledge that the funds raised on this day would be enough to support nearly half of World Child Cancer’s projects in 2016. We are grateful to all the Deutsche Bank staff who gave so generously of their time and wages on the day, as well as the numerous charity volunteers and celebrity ambassadors who combined to make the day a great success. As we eagerly await news of the final total raised by the day’s activities, we invite you to watch the One Day video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-MKG0f8X0w&feature=youtu.be – and imagine the impact that One Day will have had for the life-saving work of both World Child Cancer and Sparks.

Good luck to everyone from Deutsche Bank who is taking part in the Malawi Trek to raise funds and awareness for World Child Cancer! You are all amazing and through your brilliant fundraising efforts we can really make a difference to the lives of so many children fighting against cancer across the world. We would also like to a wish a huge good luck to our very own Jeremy Gould! Take care and we look forward to hearing about all your experiences. Remember to take as many photos as possible!
