Croydon based supplier of Managed Print Services and IT Solutions, DMC Canotec have smashed their charity fundraising target for the second consecutive quarter.
DMC Canotec have raised a total of £7,000 for Starlight Children’s Foundation, which grants once in a life time wishes and entertainment for seriously and terminally ill children within the UK.
The business is aiming to raise £10,000 this financial year through staff fundraising activities and 25p donations for every planitgreen toner sold. The organisation’s employees from offices in Croydon, Bristol, Manchester and Ringwood have played a big part in this success, giving up their spare time to raise funds through a variety of activities from hiking, running and swimming to charity car boot sales and cake bakes.
“We have just reached the half way mark in our yearlong initiative and are extremely proud to announce that we have hit and excelled our 6 month target. With this said, we do not want to lose momentum and we will be looking to continue our fundraising with an aim of beating our £10,000 target by as much as possible.
“We would like to express our sincerest thanks and gratitude to all that have donated, supported and participated in our initiative so far and would encourage anyone who wishes to be involved to get in touch with our CSR team.”
Since March, DMC Canotec’s Starlight Superstar fundraisers and sponsors have raised enough money to fund 25 Distraction Boxes, 167 places at Starlight Parties within UK hospitals and hospices and 160 places and counting at Starlight Christmas Pantomimes.
