The sales force team from ZipVit present cheque to Macmillan
ZipVit at Rugeley continued to support Macmillan in 2012, and this month presented a cheque for £17,307. Since 2008 the total donation to Macmillan has been £64,059 making ZipVit Staffordshire’s biggest company donor for Macmillan.
ZipVit has grown into one of the most successful and popular suppliers of supplements, offering an unbeatable range of over 300 products with significant savings over the high street. Their website is www.zipvit.co.uk. With every order placed with a value of over £25 you have the option to select a free gift. If a customer does not wish to receive a free gift from the selection offered, they may instead make a gift of £1 to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sarah Dinshaw – ZipVit Sales Manager said: 'We have always offered our customers free gifts when they spend over a certain value, but we started to receive suggestions from customers not to opt for the gifts and to possibly donate to charity instead.'
Therefore, since August of 2008, we gave our customers the choice of not receiving the free gift but to donate £1 to Macmillan Cancer Support instead. The outcome has been astonishing we have been able to donate £64,059 to Macmillan to date. This is a testimony to the generosity of our million plus customers. In 2012 we continued to support Macmillan and raised just over £17,000 to help people affected by cancer”.
Janos Toth - Macmillan’s Area Fundraising Manager for Staffordshire said: 'We are extremely grateful to ZipVit for their continued support over the years and to their customers backing Macmillan Cancer Support. ZipVit are the leading corporate supporter in Staffordshire and continue to help people affected by cancer.'
