Häfele UK said it is on track to hit its £50,000 fund-raising target for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The furniture fittings and architectural hardware specialist, which has its UK base in Rugby, said in 2018 it had raised £29,000, with employees at every level taking part in a variety of activities to raise money for the cause.
Fund-raising initiatives included quizzes, raffles, cake sales and various sporting events, with several members of the company even taking part in the Great North Run and London Marathon to raise money.
The company’s fund-raising drive will continue this year, with numerous events, including quizzes and a race night planned for the coming months.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, medical, emotional and financial support for those affected by the disease.
Diane Rowicki, chairman of the Häfele charity committee, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the amount raised so far and look forward to reaching our £50,000 target.
“It wouldn’t have been possible to raise so much money without the tireless support of our staff, who have really excelled themselves, dedicating so much of their time and energy to all of the fund-raising efforts.
“Häfele has a big heart when it comes to charity. Since we started the Häfele charity fund-raising committee in 1980, we have raised in excess of £150,000 for various national and local charities.”
