Posted on: 10th Apr 2018 by: Ellgia Recycling Innovation

Ellgia is delighted to partner with Macmillan Cancer Support and aim to raise £12,000 over the next 12 months.  

Ellgia is pleased to be working with Macmillan again after last year’s BMW Berlin Marathon achievements. MD Steve Crook and Technical Director Cameron Murdoch took on the challenge to complete the Berlin Marathon on 24th September 2017. Supported by some fantastic team mates, they completed the course and raised over £5000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.

This year, a calendar of events will be scheduled to encourage participation from across the whole company. Together, Ellgia hope to make a difference to those who are affected by cancer.

Macmillan is the UK’s leading cancer care charity, with the purpose of improving the lives of anyone affected by cancer. From diagnosis, through to treatment and beyond, Macmillan are a constant source of support.

Michelle Hutchinson, Fundraising Manager at Macmillan said “Nearly 84 people every week in Cambridgeshire hear the overwhelming news that they have cancer and currently Macmillan cannot be there for everyone. We are delighted to be working with Ellgia in Ely, as with their help we can reach more people and raise more money to support people affected by cancer.”

Steve Crook, Managing Director said: “After the success of last year’s fundraising for the Berlin Marathon, we are delighted to team up with Macmillan again and announce them as our Charity of the year. The charity to close of many people’s hearts and we hope to make an even bigger difference this year.”
