Speedclad's Easter events raise £588 for Macmillan Cancer Support
Speedclad staff pulled out all the stops with a series of fundraising events this Easter for our Charity of the Year, Macmillan Cancer Support.
We'd like to say a massive thank you to all of our staff and all those who helped to make our Easter fundraisers such a success and so much fun. In support of our charity for 2017, nominated by our staff, our teams at our Northallerton, Doncaster and Birmingham offices ran Easter themed events, raising a staggering £588 for Macmillan. That's enough to pay for almost 22 hours of a Macmillan nurse's time!
We held Easter Afternoon Teas and Raffles at our offices on 13th April, with our staff providing every conceivable type of home baked cake and treat along with drinks for donations. We invited all our neighbours on the local business parks, along with suppliers, friends and family, to take some time out of their day to indulge in some early Easter goodies and help us to raise money for this worthwhile cause. Macmillan kindly provided us with decorations and advice and we were delighted with the support we received and the numbers of visitors who came along. It was fantastic to see everyone pulling together and having such a good time!
These events are part of our year-long commitment to fundraise for Macmillan; to keep up with our progress, or if you'd like to sponsor an event or help us with a donation, please check out our Just Giving profile: www.justgiving.com/company/Speedclad Next on the agenda is our Summer fundraiser, Tough Mudder Half, where a brave team of 10 Speedclad staff are going to take on a crazy 5-mile mud and obstacle course... we'll keep you posted!
