This year we have raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

This year we have raised over £2000 for Macmillan Cancer Support!

This time last year we decided as a company to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support; a charity which our FD, David Carr has a personal experience with when his Grandad was diagnosed with Cancer. Since that point, we have done a variety of charity initiatives such as running an internal tuckshop, entering mud runs, held comedy nights and even we went as far as dressing our MD as a witch for the entire day! After our year-long run, we are pleased to announce that we have raised a whopping £2132.05! a new record which exceeds our initial target of only £1000.

As a company, we just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone that has donated and supported us in raising money for such a worthy cause!

While we celebrate our fantastic achievement as a company it'll be worth mentioning our new charity for 2018-19. This year we will be supporting the Stroke Association in memory of our colleagues mother who suddenly and unexpectedly passed away earlier this year to a stroke after battling cancer.
