Our team showed their support for national cancer charity Macmillan by taking part in the 2016 Macmillan Coffee Morning and getting friends and family involved, too.
Proceeds from the sale of homemade cakes and refreshments at our Yeadon site on 21 September were added to money raised during the day by offering guided tours of the factory to friends and family members to create a fantastic sum of £1,700. And, because the management team had pledged to match the amount raised, the company was able to donate a final total of £3,400 to help Macmillan continue its important work throughout the coming year.
Managing director Richard Hobson says: “We are aware that cancer has a significant impact on many of our lives, and this is a chance to support a charity that cares for patients and their families.
“We would like to say a massive thank you to everyone involved for their support, contributions and attendance. Our guests had a great time. Congratulations must also go to Simon Browning, managing director of our sister company, Select Bag Sealers, who completed the Great North run on 11 September, raising over £250 for Macmillan. Well done Simon!”
