A new local online company, www.Menno-pause.com, raised a staggering £3,282 from their very first Christmas Yorkshire Ball for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Andy Metcalf was the main organiser for the event which was held just before Christmas at Owston Hall Hotel, just on the outskirts of Doncaster. Andy commented, 'I wanted to raise funds for Macmillan after the support they gave my father, Robin Metcalf whilst going through his cancer journey'.
The company have a revolutionary new treatment for menopause symptoms and felt they were in a good position to organise some fundraising.
He added: 'Whilst raising funds for a worthwhile charity we also had a wonderful evening. Local entertainer Steve Womack performed for us. I’d like to thank everyone who helped support the day; I couldn’t have done it without them.'
Amy Hebdon, local Fundraising Manager added: 'This is a fantastic achievement, we’re absolutely thrilled. I’d like to echo Andy’s thanks to all those who’ve helped make this possible.
'It’s estimated there are 96,700 people living with cancer in the Doncaster area. Macmillan have a team of 34 Macmillan Professionals offering support in Doncaster. Macmillan rely on 98% of voluntary donations, so without people like Menno we wouldn’t be here as a charity to help those affected by cancer.'
Menno are thinking of holding the ball again. If you would like to register your interest please call 01977 663819 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
