ABB staff at sites across the UK have raised over £38k for the charity through their enthusiastic participation in major events such as ‘The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning’ as well as many smaller fund raising activities throughout the year. Over the course of a 14 year partnership staff have raised over £800,000.
Ian Funnell, ABB UK Managing Director, said: ‘Macmillan Cancer Support is a very popular charity with ABB’s staff as living with cancer can touch so many lives. The fund raising activities are a great way to have some fun at work, they are excellent for team building and encouraging different areas of our business to work together, and of course they support a very worthwhile cause. The £800,000 raised to date is an outstanding achievement and one that as a company we can all be very proud of. Our challenge now is to raise even more.’
Gillian Wilson, corporate account manager for Macmillan Cancer support said; ‘This is a fantastic achievement and is testament to the commitment of ABB staff to improving the lives of people affected by cancer. We are extremely grateful to everyone involved and looking forward to a very exciting year of working together during 2015.’
