A team from the Mitsubishi Motors UK headquarters have been praised for their support of Cancer Research UK.
According to online donating site JustGiving, the team were in the top 3% of fundraisers using the website in 2014.
The team is made up of; personal assistant to managing director Lance Bradley Verity May, fleet and used car administrator Allison May, payroll advisor Sarah Wiltshire, secretary to GM product planning and incentives Amanda Thompson, personal assistant to the managing director of finance Jo Johnson, deputy general counsel Carolyn Stephenson, network administrator Julie Smith, inventory order controller Lucy Cuss, production controller Becky Beasley, receptionist Justine Hitchman and training apprentice administrator Erika Slater.
The 11 women took part in Race for Life at Cirencester Park and held a fundraising car wash at the Mitsubishi Specialist Vehicle Operations (MSVO) centre at Love Lane Industrial Estate, Cirencester, both in July, raising £2,211.33 for Cancer Research UK.
Cirencester Race for Life event manager Michelle Leighton said: “We are delighted that the ladies from Mitsubishi were in the top 3% of fundraisers in 2014 for taking part in Cirencester Race for Life. The money they have raised allows Cancer Research UK’s doctors, nurses and scientists to advance research which is helping to save the lives of men, women and children. Cancer survival rates have doubled since the 1970s and Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of that progress. The excellent fundraising of this group will help to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
Verity May said: “It’s great to know we made it into the top 3% of fundraisers on JustGiving and we’re really grateful to all the people who supported us and helped us raise so much. We had a great day taking part in Race for Life and we were really pleased with how the car wash went. It’s fantastic to know we’ve helped make a difference to the work of Cancer Research UK.”
