Today at the CK Group we were delighted to be visited by Rob Turner, the Chesterfield Senior Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, who came by our office to collect a cheque for £950 on behalf of the charity. The money was raised by CK staff at our annual awards event in January, held in recognition of the efforts and achievement of CK staff over the last 12 months. The amount raised was further topped up by a company contribution.
Macmillan Cancer Support was chosen as the beneficiary because a number of our staff and their relatives have benefited from the support of the charity and its volunteers.
Collecting the donation, Rob said, “Thank you for your support. We cannot thank you enough for your donation. Not many people realise that 98% of Macmillan’s funding is through fundraising so without you we wouldn’t be here, and that’s a fact. So please keep up the good work.”
This is not the first time CK Group has actively raised funds to support Macmillan Cancer Support. In October the staff at our Stevenage office donated over £80 after hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning. Click here to read the story
