2024 Charity of the Year announced!

February 2, 2024

Crisp Professional Development have chosen to support the Exeter-based FORCE Cancer Charity as their nominated Charity of the Year for 2024.

Selected by the Crisp team, the Charity will benefit from a donation of company profits, as well as donations of time and expertise.

Managing Director Shaun Durham said: “We are delighted to be supporting FORCE Cancer Charity throughout 2024 as our nominated Charity of the Year. The team were keen to choose a local charity that we can connect to and engage with on a personal level. Several members of the team have first-hand experience of the incredible impact that FORCE has to those with a cancer diagnosis in Devon.

We are really excited about getting involved, through fundraising activities and donations of our time, to support this vital work”.

Some of the team visited the FORCE centre in Exeter to fully understand how the charity is helping those with a cancer diagnosis and their families, and to see the impact of corporate support and fundraising. Already on the list of planned activity are team fundraising activities; supporting the organisations main events – such as the Nello ride and Cream Teas for Cancer; and using their allocated staff volunteering day to support any projects that need additional resource.

Olly Watts, Head of Income Generation at FORCE Cancer Charity said “FORCE Cancer Charity, which is celebrating 35 years, relies mainly on voluntary donations to continue supporting those affected by cancer here in Devon. FORCE offers many services including counselling, group support, complementary therapies as well as serving as a relaxed space for patients to come and find out more about their cancer diagnosis or to simply enjoy a cup of tea before heading to the hospital for treatment.  We are incredibly grateful for the support that the team at Crisp Professional Development will be giving to FORCE this year and we are very much looking forward to working with them over the coming months.”
