Through bucket collections on World Cancer Day 2018 and other fundraising endeavours, everyone at Ticketmaster united in standing up to cancer.

In London, we joined the fight on 4 February to raise money and awareness on World Cancer Day. Staff members from our Angel office took part in bucket collections at several Tube stations, including Edgware Road and Kentish Town.


Donations were also collected around the office and money was raised online through e-commerce, with nearly 1,200 unique users brought to our product page. Plus, we sent a couple of our Minimasters to The Institute of Cancer Research to learn more about the life-saving research that goes on there.


And that’s not all! Our Manchester team have been busy raising money for Cancer Research UK too.

Their monthly quiz was held to benefit the charity. There was a great turn out and concentration faces were on as the teams prepared.

The quiz master was Customer Support Coordinator James Edge, testing the teams' knowledge on everything from "Who won the most awards at the 2018 Grammys?" to "How many hearts does an octopus have?" (The answers being Bruno Mars and three, of course!)

Throughout the night there was also a raffle with prizes from restaurants and bars, as the staff were happy to part with their money for a great cause and maybe the chance to win a prize!

In the end, the Manchester office raised £60 for Cancer Research UK through the quiz, raffle and selling of unity bands in reception.


In total, through all of these efforts, Ticketmaster raised more than £1,000!
