The specialist bridging lender attended the 2018 Children with Cancer charity ball, held on 10th November at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
The event featured performances from comedian Jon Culshaw and the American music group Sister Sledge.
Children with Cancer supports research into the causes and treatments of childhood cancers, while also providing better caring facilities for children and their families.
The funds raised from the 2018 ball will be used to back the charity’s research, support families and raise awareness of childhood cancers.
The £750,000 figure broke the charity’s previous fundraising record of £600,000 at last year’s ball.
MFS has been an active committee member of Children with Cancer since 2014 and helped to improve awareness of the charity’s work.

“It is very pleasing to see significant advancements in the cancer treatments currently available, and I have no doubt this record-breaking fundraise will provide a much-needed boost in the fight against cancer,” said Paresh Raja, CEO at MFS.
“There's still much more work to be done, and MFS will continue to work closely with Children with Cancer to help fight the impact this disease can have on young people.”
Isabelle Hayhoe, senior philanthropy and events manager at Children with Cancer UK, said it would like to extend its thanks to everyone at MFS for its ongoing support of the charity ball.
“This year we raised a record-breaking £750,000, which will help us provide support for children with cancer during their treatment and keep their families together.
“Every day, 12 families in the UK get the news that their child has cancer – that’s over 4,500 children and young people a year.
“We’d like to thank them for enabling us to continue our work to improve survival rates, to find kinder and more effective treatments, and to find ways to prevent cancer in the future.”
