McVitie’s workers raise thousands of pounds for cancer charity

Factory staff present cheque for more than �4,000

KIND-hearted workers have donated more than �4,000 to a cancer charity after throwing themselves into an array of fundraising activities.

Staff at the McVitie’s factory in Waxlow Road, Harlesden, raised the cash for the Macmillian Cancer Support in a fun filled year of events including a quiz night, a football tournament and several 5k fun runs.

This morning (Wednesday), they handed over a cheque for �4,157 from their fundraising antics to Macmillian.

Every year the workers raise money for a number of charities and donated a total of �7,667 to several organisations last year including �727 for Prostate Cancer and �2,793 for Pakistan flood victims.
