The Incisive Media Foundation has added the Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust (VCECCT) to the roster of charities it supports. The other charities backed by the Foundation include Place2Be, Women’s Aid, The Connection at St Martins, and City to Sea.
The Incisive Media Foundation was established in 2011 and has raised in excess of £1.5m since inception through Incisive Media’s portfolio of events. It also seeks to provide a framework through which staff can volunteer a small amount of their time to contribute their skills and make a meaningful difference to the lives of others. The Foundation is managed by a dedicated committee of staff from across the business, providing executive oversight and strategic input. Teams working in every area of the company participate in furthering the Foundation’s aims.
“At Incisive Media we focus on making sure we create an environment that fosters a supportive, inclusive and challenging culture with a deep sense of integrity,” said Incisive Media CEO Jonathon Whiteley. “The Incisive Media Foundation is an important cornerstone of this ethos, and I’m delighted that we are now supporting the Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust alongside our longstanding charitable partners.”
Nick Rapley, Chair of the VCECCT, added, ‘I am extremely grateful to Incisive Media for supporting the Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust. Eye cancer is a terrible disease, and the world needs more eye surgeons. It takes many years to qualify and not all those with the ability have the means to support their training and education. The Victoria Cohen Eye Cancer Charitable Trust exists to help aspiring ocular oncologists to fund their fellowship, so that they can go on to save the lives, eyes, and vision of those affected by eye cancer.’
