Dean’s has chosen to support Marie Curie Cancer Care. Throughout 2011 we will be undertaking a number of different events and activities in order to raise funds for the charity specialising in providing care for terminally ill cancer patients.

One of the methods Dean’s has chosen to raise funds is via a donation from their Online Shop, mail order service, for every £1 you, the customer, spend online at, between 31st March and 31st October 2011 Dean’s will donate 5p to Marie Curie Cancer Care.

Announcing the move Bill Dean, managing director of Dean’s, and son of the late Helen Dean, said: “we are delighted to be supporting Marie Curie Cancer Care throughout this year. Dean’s developed from a fundraising activity with my mother, Helen Dean, initially baking her shortbread in order to raise funds for the Huntly Pipe Band, in which my father was Drum Major. Fundraising therefore, takes us back to our very beginnings and what better way to do this than through the sales of our shortbread.

Paul Cockram, Corporate Development Manager at Marie Curie Cancer Care, said : “we are absolutely delighted that Dean’s have chosen to support us in 2011. Money donated to Marie Curie Cancer Care is used to provide care at home and in hospices for patients with terminal cancer and other illnesses. We couldn’t continue our work without the generosity of companies like Dean’s and we are very grateful for their support.
