Greenvale raises more than �60,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support
STAFF at Greenvale AP’s Floods Ferry Site have raised �64,677 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
In the past two years, employees at the site in Cambridgeshire and eight other Greenvale AP sites across the country have taken part in various fundraising activities, ranging from a Zumbathon to a bric-a-brac sale.
The money raised will help more than 350 families affected by cancer.
Presenting the company with a Macmillan Corporate Challenge Award, the charity’s fundraising manager Aileen Stewart said: “There are a lot of hidden costs to cancer especially if the person with cancer can’t work because of their illness.
“With the funds raised by Greenvale AP we are able to help people with the cost of getting to hospital for vital treatment.”
