Ark hits £500K match-funding target

Ark Cancer Centre Charity has hit a £500,000 match-funding target – a milestone achievement in the campaign to raise £5million towards a new cancer treatment centre.

The pledge of £500,000 of match-funding from Greenham Trust for Ark, through not-for-profit cloud platform The Good Exchange, has been a significant factor in the charity’s fundraising campaign as many fundraisers and donors have raised or given money, knowing Greenham will double the contribution.

Recycle your old clothes and you'll help Ark

At midnight tonight, it's out with the old, and in with the new – and Ark Cancer Centre Charity is hoping that supporters will carry this spirit into 2018 to help the £5million fundraising campaign.

Ark is urging local people to make a resolution to recycle unwanted clothes and shoes in January in one of the charity's many branded recycling banks that are dotted in and around the Basingstoke area.

It's been 16 months since Ark became a charity partner with Bag It Up Ltd (BIU) – one of the UK’s leading clothing and textile recycling companies.
