That the Parliament congratulates Scottish Power employees and customers on raising £30 million for Cancer Research UK (CRUK); notes that the partnership first began in 2012 with the aim of raising £5 million over three years but still continues, raising vital funds for CRUK’s life research; recognises that this incredible amount has been raised through its Help Beat Cancer Energy Tariff, which makes a donation to CRUK for every month a customer remains on the tariff, employee and supplier fundraising such as cake bakes, marathon running, fashion shows and Christmas fairs, and acknowledges that Scottish Power also shows its support by sponsoring events such as Race for Life and Stand Up To Cancer.
