Rix Hull 10k team cheque presentation
Staff at Rix Petroleum have shown huge support for Macmillan Cancer Support this year. Their amazing Hull 10k team raised thousands in sponsorship and we were proud to be part of their ‘Best in Show’ stand at this year’s Driffield Show.
Rix Petroleum chose Macmillan Cancer Support as their ‘Charity of the Year’ and their staff and directors have ran, collected and cycled to raise over £3,000 to help people affected by cancer.
A team of 8 staff raised £2,941 in sponsorship by taking part in the Hull 10k in June and almost £300 was raised during a bikeathon challenge at Driffield Show. A generous section of their Driffield Show marquee was given to Macmillan to raise funds and help spread awareness about Macmillan and our services. Rix won ‘Best Exhibition’ at Driffield Show and we would like to award them with huge thanks for their ongoing support of Macmillan! We look forward to their coffee morning planned for September and working together in partnership in the future.
Becky Baynes, fundraiser at Macmillan Cancer Support, thanked Rix and said: 'Everyone who got on the bike at the show did an excellent job and the show visitors were very generous with their donations. Some members of the team even dressed up as Muggy our Macmillan mascot and really added to the atmosphere of the day. Plus, their Rix 10k team raised an incredible amount and dedicated themselves to running 6 miles on a rainy Sunday morning. Thank you to all their staff who have got involved so far this year - it’s great to see a local business do what they can for people with cancer.'
