Sweet success as ‘Chocolate Day’ raises cash for cancer charity

Staff at Invertek Drives global HQ had sweet success in raising more money for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity in the UK. So far this year they’ve raised nearly £5,000 for the charity.

The team, based at the offices and manufacturing facility at Welshpool, Powys, donated chocolate for the event. They were also supported by several businesses, including Cadbury, Tesco, and Morrisons who provided chocolate items.

The day-long event raised £322.71 for the Macmillan Cancer Charity. The charity supports people diagnosed with cancer and their friends and family, offering a range of information, advice and support.

A great team effort

Bryony Wilson, a marketing executive at Invertek, lead the fundraising effort. “It was great to have the support of colleagues in raising more money for such a worthwhile cause. The chocolate definitely helped and we might well have to organise some charity walks and runs to compensate for the calories,” said Bryony.

The fundraising event is the latest of several organised by staff at Invertek. Earlier this year a team took part in a 5k a day challenge over 10 days.

Nineteen employees, including CEO Shaun Dean, took part. Each member completed 5k (3.1 miles) each day by walking, running, cycling or even horse riding.

They raised more than £4,600 with colleagues, family, and friends donating.
