Local company Industrial Water Jetting Systems have pledged to raise £50,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support. Following both Grandparents of Managing Director Christopher Stewart being diagnosed with cancer and the invaluable care Macmillan gave in looking after them, IWJS is proud to support the Charity.
The Company is pledged to raise £50,000 for Macmillan Cancer support, which could help Macmillan pay for a Macmillan nurse for a year and will go in to helping make sure that ‘No One Faces Cancer Alone’. Christopher Stewart, Managing Director of IWJS said:
“Macmillan have been very supportive to my family during many tough days, their commitment, understanding and absolute kindness was overwhelmingly appreciated by my family. We are very proud to be working as a partner to Macmillan and we are looking forward to raising as much money and awareness as we can”.
IWJS will be raising the money through a mixture of payroll giving by every first £1 being matched by IWJS, employee fundraising such as bike runs, Macmillan coffee mornings and they will be donating £5 to Macmillan for every job undertaken by their Macmillan branded vehicles. A total of 4 vehicles have been specially branded with both the IWJS and Macmillan logos by Colchester company Premier Signs. Three of the four vehicles are combined jetting tankers and one is a support unit. Helping to support Macmillan nationwide. Macmillan Fundraising Manager said:
“It is so wonderful to be able to work with a company as passionate as IWJS. They are truly behind the Macmillan cause in making sure that ‘No One Faces Cancer Alone’ and are working with us to not only support their employees, but also to inspire others they come into contact with to get Macmillan’s support”
