Argus Insurance is again supporting charity work on the Rock and has made a £2,500 donation to Research Into Childhood Cancer (RICC). The charity which aims are to contribute to the development of a cure for childhood cancer and to ensure the treatment administered is less invasive to the child is one of Argus Insurance Company (Europe) Limited’s two chosen charities. RICC will receive support throughout the year, as a result of fundraising activities organised by the Company’s Charity Committee.
Tarryn Gomez, Chairperson of the Argus Insurance Charity Committee said they were delighted with the amount raised and the support they had received both within the office and the community. “We’ve held several fund raising activities to help fund this amazing charity, including a Christmas Tree lighting event in December 2015, a raffle and numerous staff dress down days,” she said.
RICC was founded in 1989 by the parents of Philip Sacarello, a young boy who battled Neuroblastoma, a form of childhood cancer, but who sadly died at the age of 9. The charity works closely with Great Ormond Street Hospital in London in their research as well as funding specialist equipment at the hospital locally in Gibraltar.
