Mark Vitow Ltd raises funds for Cancer Research UK through daring participation in The Crick Abseil

Mark Vitow Ltd, a leading name in the plumbing and heating industry, has once again demonstrated its commitment to social responsibility by participating in The Crick Abseil, a daring fundraising event aimed at supporting Cancer Research UK’s vital work in cancer research and treatment.

The Crick Abseil, a thrilling annual event run by City of London Friends of Cancer Research UK, challenges participants to conquer their fears and scale down the towering Francis Crick Institute building in London, all while raising funds for a cause close to many hearts: advancing the fight against cancer. Mark Vitow Ltd enthusiastically accepted the challenge, bringing together a team of fearless Vitow family shareholders, employees and Brand Ambassador, ‘I Love Plumbing’ Andy Cam to descend the heights and make a significant impact in the fight against this relentless disease.

Mark Vitow Ltd’s involvement in The Crick Abseil aligns perfectly with their vision to lead and inspire the plumbing industry as a positive force. With a firm belief in the importance of giving back, the company has consistently shown support for various charitable initiatives including NHS Charities, the Builders Merchants Federation (BMF) Appeal for Ukraine, and Warriors of Warmth, a team of charity heating engineers donating their trade to fight fuel poverty. Their decision to participate in The Crick Abseil further underlines their dedication to contributing to the greater good and making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by cancer.

“We are thrilled to be part of The Crick Abseil and to be supporting Cancer Research UK’s mission,” said Matthew Phillips, CEO of Mark Vitow Ltd. “Cancer is a far too prevalent disease that has affected the Mark Vitow Family in ways that are identifiable for so many others. By taking part in this exciting challenge we hope to raise both awareness and funds to aid the incredible work of Cancer Research UK in developing breakthrough treatments and finding a cure.”

Every step taken by the Mark Vitow team down the side of the Francis Crick Institute is a step towards progress in cancer research. The funds raised through their participation will directly support Cancer Research UK’s innovative projects, cutting-edge research initiatives, and patient support programs. The company urges individuals, businesses, and communities to rally behind their efforts and contribute to this significant cause.
