Specialist bed-maker springs into action to raise thousands for Macmillan
Adjustable bed specialist Comfomatic has hit the £100,000 fundraising mark for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The money raised will help Macmillan provide much needed support to people with cancer and their families.
Two years ago, the directors of Comfomatic decided to start donating to the charity.
Comfomatic’s Mike McNicholas explained: “One of the directors had recently retired from her job as a District Nursing Sister, she had worked closely with the Macmillan nursing team supporting people with cancer.
“So, we had first hand knowledge of the tremendous work they do not only supporting their patients, but also supporting the healthcare professionals delivering frontline care to those patients.
“As we all know people touched by cancer, it just made sense, that we did what we could to help Macmillan.”
In recognition of the £100,000 achievement, the Comfomatic team have invited Macmillan’s Corporate Fundraising Manager, Megan Kong, to join them at a celebration in their call centre.
Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and financial support to people affected by cancer every year, which Comfomatic feels is in line with its own ethos as it aims to positively impact people’s lives every day.
The team at Comfomatic added that they are delighted that the money raised for Macmillan will allow their nurses to positively impact people’s lives at a time when those people need it the most.
The bed specialist concluded: “Our efforts will not stop at £100,000 and we are now firmly setting our sites on the huge landmark target of £250,000!”
