£2,500 raised for Starlight

£2,500 raised for Starlight

As we come to the close of Quarter 1, DMC Canotec are extremely proud to announce that our staff, customers and partners have reached our Quarterly target of raising £2,500 for Starlight Children’s Foundation.

Having embarked on a 12 month Giving Back initiative DMC Canotec have hit their first aim of raising enough money to fund 25 Starlight Distraction Boxes. Distraction boxes contain fun toys, puzzles and games and are a useful tool used by doctors and nurses to distract seriously ill children from the tests and treatments they often endure on a daily basis.

DMC Canotec have pledged to raise £10,000 for the children’s charity through on the box donations for every planitgreen toner sold or used within our customers’ devices, along with a number of fundraising events and sporting activities. These activities include a 5K run, The London ColorVibe 5K, The Purbeck Plod as well as a number of other office based fundraisers.

With quarter 1 complete, DMC Canotec is pleased to announce that this first target of £2,500 was met by the first week of June, giving a head start on our second quarterly focus of funding places at Starlight Parties.  Starlight parties give hospitalised children the chance to enjoy face painting, party packs, fun games, party food, decorations and clowns to distract them for their illnesses.

Since the initiative began the business has raised in excess of £3,300, enough money to fund 25 distraction boxes and over 55 places at a Starlight party.

If you would like to get involved with our fundraising, have any questions or suggestions, please contact marketing@dmcplc.co.uk
