Macmillan cancer charity gets support from Smithers Rapra

Macmillan cancer charity gets support from Smithers RapraFrom its European-based polymer consultancy, testing, processing and analytical centre, a donation has been made by polymer specialist Smithers Rapra to Shropshire’s Macmillan Cancer Support.

Customers were sent information digitally that made cost savings through which donations were made by the company.

Commercial director, Dr Diane Baker, said, “The utilisation of one e-zine campaign as opposed to a traditional hard copy mailing, saved Smithers Rapra just over £500, and what better way to acknowledge the saving than making a donation to the leading UK registered charity, Macmillan.”

Macmillan fundraising manager Claire Nester said that everyone at Smithers Rapra needs to be thanked for whatever support they provided. The money given was huge and he thanked everyone for it. The amount of money given according to Nester could easily enable the running of a Macmillan information and support centre or could pay for a spa pampering day for all the members of a self-help and support group.

He added that such a time would mean that they can break free from the thought that they have cancer and at tough times they get a boost in their confidence also.

There was an annual general meeting organized where an active and a very rewarding year was celebrated by fund-raisers of the local Macmillan Cancer Support.
