We’re delighted to have raised over £10,000 for the Douglas Macmillan hospice in Staffordshire with the help of our wonderful customers.
Voluntary donations make up 75% of the £12m needed this year alone to maintain the services of the hospice. Established in 1973, the Douglas Macmillan Hospice is a 28-bed care facility for people facing incurable cancer, servicing primarily the North Staffordshire area.
This year we asked our trade customers to pledge £1 for every door purchased during September and promised to match their donations.
Our fundraising culminated on 22nd September – Dougie Mac’s annual Bring a Pound Day, when our sporty Technical Team Leader Cameron Edmonds took on a 150-mile cycle! Cameron was ably supported by various members of our senior management team who took turns to run between 5K and 10k to complete a 50k challenge.
Gareth Mobley, Solidor CEO adds: “The generosity shown by all of our customers is overwhelming. The Douglas Macmillan Hospice is a fantastic local charity and we know that the money raised will be put to good use. We’re really proud to be able to support them. A huge thank you must also go to all the Solidor staff who took part and did a fantastic job in raising money for a great cause.”
