Raising a mug for Macmillan: SYNETIQ raises £1,359 for cancer charity

SYNETIQ, the UK’s largest integrated vehicle salvage, dismantling and recycling company, has donated £1,359 to its chosen charity partner, Macmillan Cancer Support, enough to fund a Macmillan Nurse for a week.

Colleagues from the company’s flagship sites at Doncaster and Winsford served a mountain of tea, coffee and cake to support people whose lives have been impacted by cancer as part of Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on 24th September. Together, the sites raised a combined total of £1,259.

Generous colleagues donated raffle prizes including a day’s annual leave, overnight hotel stays, pamper gifts and restaurant vouchers.

An additional £100 was donated to Macmillan from customer donations at counters throughout the year.

Anna Reade, Client Relationship Manager at SYNETIQ Winsford, said friendly rivalry to see which site could raise the most money helped get colleagues involved and made for a successful morning. She added: “We are so grateful for all the generous donations from colleagues and customers. We all know someone who has been affected by cancer, whether that’s in their individual life or through family and friends. It’s important for us to do our bit in the community and help organisations like Macmillan who do a fantastic job supporting them.”

Macmillan’s annual Coffee Morning – one of the UK’s longest-running fundraising events – usually sees millions of pounds donated to help support people affected by cancer and helps fund Macmillan services to provide physical, emotional, and financial support.
