Chelsea dart-a-thon team raises £20,000 for Cancer Research UK

Last Friday, 21 April 2017, Chelsea's staff hosted a 24-hour dart-a-thon for CASCAID - an asset management industry charity initiative to raise £1m for Cancer Research UK in 2017.

We raised a huge £20,000 (and counting) and we couldn't be more proud! It will bring the industry total raised so far to £450,000, so we are well on our way to meeting and hopefully exceeding the overall target.

Taking on the fund managers

Teams from Aberdeen, Baillie Gifford, Capital, CRUX, Downing, Farr & Co, Fidelity, KL Communications, M&G, Schroders, Rathbones, Standard Life Investments and T. Rowe Price all took part in the dartathon, challenging the Chelsea teams and generally keeping spirits high throughout the day and long into the night.

Our thanks to all who came along to support and all those who kindly and generously donated!
