As we approach the end of 2022, we’re delighted to share with you that two members of our team have taken their charity fundraising for Cancer Research UK past the £1,000 mark.
Over the last two years, Lynne Switzer (Warehouse Supervisor) and Laura-Jane Smith (Packaging Operative) have been raising funds by selling our excess and resalable warehouse stock at key times over the year.
And this year, we’re proud to say the pair of them - with the help of our community - have raised £499.50 over three sales!
Combining that with the £553.50 they raised in 2021, their first year of running the sales initiative, means they have raised a grand total of £1,053.50 for Cancer Research UK over the last two years.
What our team had to say...
This is what Lynne had to say: “Sadly, I lost two people I cared about to cancer last year and I really wanted a project I could throw myself into and raise funds for a charity that is close to my heart.
“The work Cancer Research UK do is invaluable - both for patients and for loved ones, like family and friends - and I’m so pleased by how FootActive and the community have supported this initiative.”
And Will Munro, our Chief Operating Officer, also added: “Both Lynne and Laura-Jane have found a fantastic way of utilising stock that would otherwise be thrown out and we couldn’t be prouder of the work they continue to do to raise money for Cancer Research UK.”
We can also confirm that we will be holding more charity fundraising events during 2023, with our next excess stock sale being held at some point in the Spring. Stay tuned across our various digital channels for more information.
