Wetherby-based kitchen manufacturer Moores has raised over £8,800 for Yorkshire Cancer Research across several internal fundraisers and ‘Step out for Yorkshire’ challenge.
In addition, the company also donated a new kitchen to support the refurbishment of the charity’s headquarters.
Moores original target was to raise £7,500, but the team surpassed this goal and raised £8,807.
Celebrating its 75th anniversary, this year, the manufacturer will continue to fundraise for the charity with planned half marathons and team events.
CEO of Moores Mike Barrett commented: “We celebrate our Yorkshire roots in many ways throughout the business and are very proud of our heritage.
“It’s incredible to have raised this amount of money for an essential charity in the region which directly impacts our community, and I want to personally thank everyone who has contributed to help us exceed our target.”
Yorkshire Cancer Research funds medical research into early diagnosis and treatments, so people with cancer can live longer, healthier lives.
Director of brand and relationships at the charity Juliet Glendinning added: “Yorkshire Cancer Research is hugely grateful for the generous support of Moores Furniture Group over the last 12 months.
“We would like to thank Mike Barrett, Calista Bendell, Julie Holliday and all the team at Moores for their support, which is enabling us to continue our vital work to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer across Yorkshire.”
