Having nominated Macmillan Cancer Support, as its charity of the year, kbb distributor PJH has passed the halfway point of its £10,000 fundraising goal.
PJH staff have raised £6,136 so far, doubling the amount raised since the summer, with its Three Peaks Challenge, Macmillan Coffee Mornings and a Funday held at the its Cannock Distribution Centre..
Taking on the challenge of walking the Yorkshire Three Peaks – Pen-y-Ghent, Whernside and Ingleborough – six employees covered 24 miles including 5,200ft of ascent.
In addition, numerous Macmillan Coffee Mornings took place across a number of the company’s sites, with its Cannock centre adding activities to raise more funds.
PJH has pledges to match the £10,000 goal once this target has been achieved.
PJH’s HR business partner Katy Burns commented on the fundraising: “We chose Macmillan as the 2023/24 PJH charity of the year, as it is such an amazing organisation that makes a huge difference to the lives of millions of people affected by cancer.
“All PJH fundraising events present the opportunity to raise awareness of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity and communicate the incredibly important work it does in supporting people affected by cancer.
“PJH colleagues have really got behind so many fundraising activities so I’m sure we’ll smash our target!”
