Auditel raises thousands for charity

Cost and purchase management franchise Auditel has raised over £2,000 for The Prostate Cancer Charity through a charity raffle and auction held at its Annual National Conference. Auditel decided to fundraise for The Prostate Cancer Charity in memory of Tim Rix, a former member of the Auditel network, who died of prostate cancer last year.

The Annual National Conference provides franchisees with networking opportunities, workshops and presentations, which will help them to grow their businesses. The charity raffle and auction took place after the gala dinner. The prizes were donated by supplier sponsors and ranged from a digital camera, an iPod nano, to a day's sailing. The auction prize was two three-day tickets to the 2008 Grand Prix in the Luffield Grandstand and was donated by Shell LPG.

Corporate Partnership's Executive at The Prostate Cancer Charity Dougal Hawes says: 'We are extremely grateful to Auditel for its generous support. Every year in the UK, 10,000 men die from prostate cancer. Auditel's donation is a wonderful way to not only show its support to the many thousands of men who are already diagnosed with prostate cancer, but also to help raise awareness of the disease.'
