Keep up to date with the latest McCartneys news
Wed 1 June 2016
About 18 months ago we took the decision to start supporting a charity for the year. 2015 saw us raising money for the Air Ambulance with our main event being a sponsored walk up Pen Y Fan in the Brecon Beacons (pictured above) and all told we raised over £700 for this extremely worthy cause.
This year we have decided to raise funds for MacMillan Cancer Support, a cause close to many of our hearts here in McCartneys. It is quite amazing when you get talking to colleagues within McCartneys just how many people have been affected by cancer one way or another, both directly and indirectly.
Perhaps this shouldn’t come as such a surprise, as when you look at the figures MacMillan cancer support suggest that in 2015 an estimated 2.5 Million people had received some form of Cancer diagnosis, a quite staggering figure.
Our main event this year will be stepping things up a little from last year’s effort with a sponsored walk up the highest peak in England and Wales, Snowdon, with a team from McCartneys scaling the mountain on Sunday 26th June. Those participating will be seeking some sponsorship and we also have a just giving page set up www.justgiving.com/McCartneys-Climb-Snowdon.
Any support that you can give us to help raise funds for MacMillan would be hugely appreciated or if you would like to join us on the 26th June you would be very welcome.
