Courier Company Delivers for Charitable Causes

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Aug. 6, 2012) - In the current austere economic climate charitable organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to secure funds as the recession curtails philanthropic donations. Taking a committed stand to support worthy causes parcel delivery company ipostparcels and their parent company UK Mail have been actively involved in raising for charity.

The UK courier has been in partnership with Cancer Research UK for 5 years now in their 'Post for Life' campaign which involves their parcel collection and delivery brand ipostparcels. The campaign lets customers donate unwanted items to Cancer Research UK shops when they use the company's parcel collection and delivery service.

With each bag of donations expected to raise £30 for the charity it will make a valuable contribution to a very worthy cause. The UK Mail group has already raised £83,083 for the charity last year and their continued support has been welcomed by Cancer Research UK.

Commenting on the campaign Professor Nick James said, 'We are extremely grateful to UK Mail staff and customers for raising such a large amount for Cancer Research UK.'
