Tembé DIY and Building Products raises £11,000 for Children with Cancer UK
Doncaster based Tembé DIY and Building Products raises £11,000 for Children with Cancer, with the money going towards research into finding cures and providing care for children with cancer. For every promotional pack of Hippo Heavy Duty Trade Wipes sold, Tembé DIY and Building Products raises £11,000 for Children with Cancer UK donated 50p to Children with Cancer.
Guy Malam, managing director of Tembé DIY & Building Products, Kevin Heath, sales director, Neil Herd, Andrew Baker, (marketing directors) and Victoria Nicholson attended a cheque presentation at Children with Cancer UK's head office in Great Ormond Street, London last week with Francesca Borrelli from Children with Cancer UK.
Children with Cancer UK is the leading national children's charity dedicated to the fight against childhood cancer. Funding life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of childhood cancer and working to protect young lives through essential welfare programmes.
As well as raising money through the sales of Hippo Heavy Duty Wipes, keen employees at Tembé DIY & Building Products - the parent company of Hippo, raised money by taking part in various runs. Guy Malam and his fiancée Victoria Nicholson took part in this year's Virgin Money London Marathon, Kevin Heath took part in the Bournemouth Marathon, and seven of the team took part in the Isle of Axholme Half Marathon running to raise vital funds for Children for Cancer UK.
Guy Malam explains why he chose to support Children with Cancer UK:
"Cancer is the biggest child-killer disease in the UK. At Tembé we are proud to continue doing our part to help raise money for a cure."
Francesca Borrelli from Children with Cancer UK said of the donation: "We are delighted that Tembé DIY chose to support Children with Cancer UK this year. Their fundraising efforts have been amazing and we cannot thank the team enough for their enthusiasm and commitment.
"Around 4,000 children and teenagers are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK, which is why our work is so vital. This valued gift will massively contribute towards our life saving research, so from all of us at the charity, please accept our renewed and heartfelt thanks."
