We are so pleased to announce that we have raised a total of £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support over the course of 2018, taking our total raised for the charity since we began supporting Macmillan in 2012 to £185,000.
Our 2018 ‘Mannings for Macmillan’ campaign saw our team from branches across the city organising and taking part in a variety of activities to raise the money.
The cheque for £20,000 was presented to Macmillan’s area fundraising manager, Matt Jameson, by Kate Arnold, at our annual Pride Awards, which was held at the Hilton Hotel on Saturday (19 Jan).
This annual awards event is held every January to recognise the achievements and successes of Manning Stainton employees. This year it was attended by over 200 employees.
Speaking about the money raised, Matt Jameson said: “This is a significant amount of money and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone at Manning Stainton who has contributed to raising it.
“All the money raised will go towards funding a Macmillan nurse who will provide much-needed care and support to local cancer patients and their families.”
Kate Arnold added: “I’m really proud of all my colleagues who have worked so tirelessly to raise this money for a brilliant charity that’s so close to many of our hearts. From holding car boot sales, hosting coffee mornings and spending Saturdays collecting money in the city centre, everyone’s worked really hard to make as much money as possible for Macmillan. Well done!”
