As you all know, here at Stripe we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty. This was proven yet again at the weekend as we spent the day with broadcaster Cat Cubie and brave cancer survivor, Kate Bowman, to support 300 ScottishPower employees who took part in Race for Life’s Pretty Muddy event in Glasgow to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
Cat offered her support to highlight the important role that fundraising plays in helping to beat cancer sooner. The broadcaster and columnist knows first-hand the importance of research, having lost her grandmother to breast cancer. She was joined by brave cancer survivor and former Motherwell FC cheerleader Kate Bowman, who discovered she had a rare form of cancer when she was just 23.
Cat and Kate supported ScottishPower’s army of fundraisers and started them off as they began the Pretty Muddy event to raise money to help bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. ScottishPower has already raised £7 million for Cancer Research UK and doesn’t intend to stop there.
Inspired by the mud and the phenomenal fundraising, some Stripes even said they would sign up next year…
