Angmering-based charity Cancer United have been helped towards the goal of purchasing a new minibus courtesy of SHW. The Alzheimer’s Society and Cancer United were the firm’s nominated charities for 2017, and the recipients for the forthcoming year are The Ralph Bates Pancreatic Cancer Research Fund and the Trevor Mann Baby Unit at the Royal Sussex County Hospital.
Funds are raised viaa series of sports days, raffles and other activities across the year–the firm’s Partners matched the sum in order to double the final figure.
Cancer United Founder Jan Sheward said: “Knowing that companies such as SHW support us by raisingawareness as well as much needfunding is a huge part of the recovery process for our members, and is invaluable towards helping and sustaining the charity.”
Cancer United is completely run by volunteers and 100% of donations goes towards providing help and support.
Rebecca Maclaran,who works for SHW and has also been a Cancer United service user said: “Without the help and support of Cancer United I would not have recovered so quickly and been able to return to work immediately after my cancer treatment. Not only did I get support from all the members but was able to regain my self confidence that was badly shaken after my illness!”
