Brand makes donation in lieu of hosting 10th anniversary party.
Carat* has marked its 10th anniversary by donating £10,000 to charity Macmillan Cancer Support to support its Celebrity Christmas Stocking Auction.
The brand made the donation in lieu of hosting a 10th anniversary party. Its chief executive Scott Thompson explained: “I recently lost a dear friend to this vicious disease so wanted to do something that was significant and inspiring as opposed to throwing a party. I am delighted to be celebrating our 10th year milestone by supporting the Macmillan Cancer Support and hope this donation will help the charity move a step closer to its fundraising goals."
The money is being put towards Macmillan’s £140,000 Christmas Stocking Auction target. Macmillan’s director of corporate partnerships and philanthropy described the donation as fantastic.
