Elaine Bunn, Director of Nortech and Joanna Summers presenting the cheque to Liz Airey, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan in Teesside.
A massive thanks to Nortech in Billingham for raising £3626 to help local people affected by cancer.
The money was raised through a number of fundraising events throughout the year, including Nortech's annual Golf Day and Shoot. The event was a huge success with 31 golfers and 10 shooters partaking in the day’s events and a few more joining us for the evening activities.
A big thanks goes to all who sponsored the day, either in the form of an auction/raffle donation or through the sponsoring of the day activities. Once again, a big thank you to all of Nortechs key sponsors of the day: Axiom Engineering, Handlesbanken & Emirates.
Over the last 4 years, the Nortech Cares campaign has raised over £29,000 for local causes. The Nortech Cares campaign was created to provide a platform to support all of our charitable and community work. The campaign will continue to support Macmillan annually.
Liz Airey, Fundraising Manager said; 'Macmillan is only able to help local people affected by cancer with the local support we get, a huge thanks to everyone who was involved, they have raised such a fantastic amount. People sometimes think of Macmillan as just a national charity, but for our local fundraising and service teams, our only priority is raising money in Teesside, and continuing work with partners locally to give local people the best cancer care possible.
'Macmillan is going to need to keep growing each year to make sure no one has to face cancer alone. We have plenty of opportunities to get involved with the local Macmillan fundraising team. In 2016, we’re particularly keen to work with more local businesses, whose support can make a real difference in their community.'
