A FUNDRAISING Elvis night has taken place at The Royal Agricultural University raising money for Cancer Research.

On Saturday, October 26, not one but three Elvis’s landed in Cirencester, performing as The3Elvi to a ‘sold out’ crowd.

Ian Street, branch manager of the Cirencester branch for Hamptons International, who also performed as one of the acts alongside Eren Emir and Andrew MacNewman, said how delighted he was with the success of the evening which raised over £2,200 for Cancer Research UK.

He said: “The generosity of those who attended, gave their time and donated prizes was overwhelming and judging by the demand for tickets, Elvis is still very much alive in the Cotswolds.”

To help celebrate its 150th birthday, Hamptons International has committed to make 2019 its biggest year of fundraising yet.

Each member of the business has pledged to raise £150 as part of an internal initiative to collectively raise in excess of £150,000 for Cancer Research, UK by the end of the year.

So far they have raised almost a quarter of a million pounds for Cancer Research UK and they are aiming to bring that total to £400,000 by the end of 2019.
