The RLB London team said a fond farewell to The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) this month, whose corporate team has been co-residing in its London offices in the Shard, while the ICR’s own offices have been refurbished.
As part of its ESG and corporate responsibility programme, the RLB team offered the ICR, which is both a research institute and a charity, a portion of their busy London office, alongside sharing their facilities. Integrating the charity’s team into the London RLB team meant that they also invited them to participate in ‘lunch and learn’ sessions that involved employees from the ICR, including two prostate cancer researchers, sharing insights about the aims, research and fundraising that they undertake at the ICR.
The ICR’s corporate team, whose offices in Old Brompton Road were being modernised and redesigned to provide specially designed spaces for teaching their MSc in Oncology to trainee doctors, have been with RLB since July 2023.
James Kelly from The Institute of Cancer Research commented,
“We are massively appreciative of the generosity of RLB in allowing us residency in its Shard offices for the last seven months while our own offices were being refurbished. It was more than just having a space to work in though – they made us feel very much part of the RLB culture.”
RLB London Managing Partner, Nick Eliot comments,
“Our relationship with The Institute of Cancer Research will not end with its team moving out of our offices. We will look to continue to work with them helping them fundraise, and promote their events, both to the RLB team and our wider network.”
