Drew Smith Launches New Charity Partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support
Drew Smith has announced its new partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support today in a bid to raise £10,000 by the end of 2022.
Drew Smith have taken on the challenge to raise money and awareness in memory of their colleague, Zoe, who sadly lost her battle to eye cancer earlier this year.
The team have already enjoyed coffee mornings across their sites in the South Coast and last week held a “Wear it, Share it” day where the team were encouraged to wear their high vis for the day and share awareness of cancer prevention. They also have nine members of their team who have registered for the 2022 London marathon and are hoping to be able to run this to raise money for Macmillan.
Adrian Cator, Managing Director said; “Macmillan were a huge support to Zoe and her family, and we wanted to set ourselves a challenge to carry on her legacy and help raise vital funds for this incredible charity. I look forward to seeing what fundraising events the team can come up with over the next year.”
Lisa Sainsbury, Relationship Fundraising Manager at Macmillan Cancer Support said: “We are thrilled that Drew Smith have chosen us as its new charity partner, we are excited to see all the fundraising challenges they get up to in memory of Zoe. The funds they have already raised through the coffee morning events and the “Wear it, Share it” initiative will make a real difference to people affected by cancer.”
