Uform’s Fundraising Initiatives Raises Over £7k for Charities
Kitchen manufacturer and distributor Uform has participated in two recent events in order to raise funds for four charities.
In May, 3 relay teams of 14 employees took to the streets of Belfast to complete the Belfast City Marathon. For Team Uform, this event was focussed on raising much needed funds for three named charities, MND Association which improves care and support for people with Motor Neuron Disease, their families and carers, Marie Curie which provides care and support for people living with terminal illness and the Dialysis Unit at the Belfast City Hospital.
In early June, the company, in conjunction with Jacobs Supercars, played host to a ‘Cars and Coffee’ event at their Co.Antrim premises with all funds raised going towards Charis Cancer Care, a local Co.Tyrone based charity which provides support for men and women affected by cancer at every stage of their journey.
Over 500 people were in attendance to view over 200 cars on display, including all types and models of sports cars including some very special editions.
Commenting on the recent initiatives, Uform’s Fundraising Lead, Michelle Doyle said, ‘We’re so pleased to be able to give something back as a team. A lot of people are going through their own personal battles with their health and every year we choose a selection of charities which are very close to colleague’s hearts in Uform. Collectively we’ve raised over £7,000 for these four main charities and it’s really humbling to be in a position to do this’.
