    Ellgia Limited, the Regions ‘National award-winning’ waste management and recycling company, has spent this summer raising funds for five worthy causes within the Region. Having recently received the accolade of ‘Independent operator of the year’ at this year’s MRW National recycling awards, the Ellgia Team adopted the motto ‘Our award is your reward’ and set about initiating fundraising activities to support five Charities within their operational areas of Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Norfolk, Lincolnshire and North Lincolnshire.

    • The East Anglian Air Ambulance
    • L.I.V.E.S saving lives in Lincolnshire
    • Ely Food bank partnership
    • East Anglia’s Children’s Hospice
    • Lindsey Lodge Hospice

    Ellgia’s Sales and Marketing Director Joe Hemsley-Rudd explained ‘As a Business within the community, we understand the importance of being as active as possible in helping the people within our heartland. As a team we looked at where we thought we could help most and chose things close to our hearts and where we thought we could make a difference’.

    One of the initiatives was to donate £5 from every skip hired throughout the month of July. As a result of this initiative Ellgia registered a record month for skip hire through all of its regional depots bringing in extensive revenue to be forwarded and divided equally between the five Charities.

    Joe Hemsley-Rudd summarised the summer activity by stating,


    This has been a truly amazing feat by all the Team and we’re all extremely proud of the sums of money raised. We would like to thank our customers for their continued support, you allow us to give back and make a difference. It really is a case of ‘Our award being your Reward’.

    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.”
