target for cancer charity
National housebuilder Bellway has
reached an impressive milestone in its fundraising work for a leading cancer
charity – hitting a total of £1 million.

announced as Bellway’s nominated charity in 2016, staff across the country have
worked hard to raise money for the worthy cause.

fundraising efforts by taking part in the Cotswold Way Challenge, holding dress
down days, a golf day, a Christmas raffle and more.

by the division over the last two years, which has then been matched by
Bellway’s head office in Newcastle upon Tyne.

hit six months earlier than expected.
