A-Plant Raises £10,000 for Cancer Research UK
A-Plant, the UK’s largest equipment rental company, has raised £10,000 for their 2016 charity partner, Cancer Research UK. Employees from the company’s Support Office in Warrington made the presentation at the Manchester Cancer Research Centre.
A-Plant’s Marketing Director, Asif Latief said, “The A-Plant team based at our Support Office in Warrington, alongside colleagues from our 165 strong service centre network have carried out a number of fundraising initiatives ranging from charity bike rides and dress down days to cake sales and even a mini Olympics event to raise this money. I would like to thank each and every one of them and their families for taking part in the activities”.
Asif continued, “We are delighted to make this donation to Cancer Research UK. It is very rewarding to be able to give back to the communities we serve, charity and community work is something that we are very passionate about at A-Plant and above all, it is a privilege to be able to support the amazing work that Cancer Research UK is doing in the fight against cancer.”
Katie Hesketh, Local Fundraising Manager from Cancer Research UK said, “We are thrilled to receive this £10,000 donation and we are also extremely thankful for the hard work put in to raise such as large sum of money from the team at A-Plant. Not only have they raised this amazing amount they have raised a lot of awareness in the local community and highlighted the importance of fundraising.”
“Every day 112 people are diagnosed with cancer in the North West alone. We receive no Government funding for our ground-breaking research, so money raised by supporters, like A-Plant is crucial to help us beat cancer sooner. Research has led to an improved understanding of the biology and causes of cancer. This in turn has led to discovering better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat the disease. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured and we’re accelerating progress to see 3 in 4 people survive cancer, A-Plant has helped us to get closer to this, thank you.”
