Hunters Raise Money for Cancer Week

During the week commencing 28 November, Hunters will be supporting Cancer charities and raising money for these worthwhile causes. We will support them via a “Wear it Pink” day; a Macmillan coffee morning and by sponsoring Matt Wells, one of our Hunters colleagues, running 109 miles over the Cleveland Way, known as the Run4Cancer Challenge.

The Run4Cancer Challenge Run

Matt Wells from our Biz team will run the entire length of The Cleveland Way (109 miles) in four days which means four back to back marathon distance runs between Helmsley and Filey.

Matt is currently adjusting his training to make the switch from a short/mid distance runner to a multi marathon/endurance runner. What a challenge! His plan is to cover the distance over four days with those days being the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th of December 2011

How can you help…

Sponsor Matt and follow him on Twitter

You can also run and support him too if you like! If running is not your thing or its too far away, however, then please sponsor him for as much as you can.

 

Wear it Pink!

You can register on line for this simple but effective idea to raise money for breast cancer. Wear something pink for the day and donate £2 for each item. We support this event every year and there are other things that you can do – again just visit the website for details and collection boxes.

You can do this on any day you like but maybe Thursday 1st December would be a good day?

Want to do more and fancy a coffee? Then hold a Macmillan’s coffee morning

 

World’s Biggest Coffee Morning

Although the official date for this event was 30th September we felt that to have a week’s events for cancer was a great way of showing our support to charities, and Macmillan’s do not mind when we have their coffee morning. What is important is that we support them! There are lots of ideas for the event on their website. Often it is as simple as preparing cakes and coffee and sharing them with colleagues and your customers. A great and relaxing way to chat and support a charity at the same time! Again this can be done on any day that week but maybe Friday 2nd would be a good day.

Don’t forget to take some photos and send them in. We have a tremendous record for fund raising and publicizing your events is key to getting lots of interest. If you need any more help then let me know.
