Q.E.P. Co. UK Ltd. Raises Funds for Macmillan Cancer Support with Snowdon Challenge
Boca Raton, FL – October 18, 2016 – Team QEP recently participated in ‘The Snowdon Challenge,’ to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support. The challenge involved an intense 8 mile hike up Snowdon, the highest mountain peak in all of England and Wales. With a grand sense of accomplishment and pride, Team QEP reported that the entire team of 25 reached the summit and exceeded their original fundraising goal.
The Snowdon Challenge was only the latest fundraising effort to support this worthy cause. Beginning in November of 2015, Q.E.P. Co. UK Ltd. began their partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and commenced their ongoing effort in the grueling fight against cancer. In just under one year, the company is pleased to report that they have raised an astonishing £15,300!
Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charity organizations, providing information, support, resources and even financing to individuals affected by cancer. From those personally diagnosed, to the family around them, Macmillan’s goal is to reach and improve the lives of everyone living and dealing with this frightful diagnosis.
Macmillan estimates that it costs £27 per hour to fund a single nurse, meaning that thanks to the effort made by QEP, an additional 566 hours of nursing time has been added, administering the applaudable service that Macmillan staff continues to provide.
The QEP/Macmillan partnership has been spearheaded by QEP Commercial Accountant, Steve White, who has been responsible for event planning, engaging colleagues and generating enthusiasm within the team.
Contributions generously poured in from corporate contacts, suppliers, customers, colleagues, family and friends, all to which Steve, Team QEP and the entire company would like to send a massive thank you.
