Air Partner raises a fantastic £8534 for Macmillan Cancer Support
Staff at Air Partner plc, the global aviation services group headquartered in Gatwick, have participated in various fundraising activities since February 2016, raising £8534 to help people affected by cancer.Events have included a table-tennis knock-out during Wimbledon week, two coffee mornings and aChristmas party. The company also entered a team of cyclists into RideLondon in July 2016.
Emma Heley, Macmillan’s Fundraising Manager for Surrey, said: “We were delighted that Air Partner plc chose to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2016. It was great to be their Charity of the Year, jointly with Chestnut Tree House, and the money they’ve raised is enough to pay for a Macmillan nurse for around two months, helping people living with cancer receive essential medical, practical and emotional support. A big thank you to all the staff at Air Partner for their support and generosity – we are looking forward to another fruitful partnership in 2017.”
Neil Morris, CFO at Air Partner, said: “We were thrilled to raise this amount of money for Macmillan Cancer Support. In addition to benefitting such a worthwhile cause, organising these charity events is a really good way of bringing our employees together. I took part in RideLondon last year and had a fantastic time cycling from London to Surrey alongside my colleagues. I hope we can get even more people to take part with us this year!”
