Swift Group donates £30,000 to cancer charity

34bb68b6-eddc-4efb-89dc-d8f725669e77

Motorhome, caravan and holiday home manufacturer, the Swift Group, has donated over £30,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support

The Hull-based manufacturer raised the funds through a recycling of goods scheme – which has been running at the company since 1995 – in which staff have the opportunity to purchase damaged or unsellable items in exchange for a charitable donation.

Swift’s Content Marketing Manager, Cheryl White explains,

 

Any kind of redundant or surplus materials that we have in the factory – which could be anything from offcuts of wood, which employees often use for firewood, or any slightly imperfect items, like a scratched microwave – that can’t be used in final products, employees have the chance to purchase them. They then take that home knowing money is raised for charity.

It also includes samples or prototypes and even scrap metal. Sometimes returning these to suppliers is a big admin task or they are simply unwanted so, rather than scrapping them or putting them into a skip, which obviously isn't great for the environment, it all gets put into a pot, so to speak.

Laura Holohan, Macmillan Cancer Support’s Fundraising Manager in Yorkshire, adds,

 

We are so grateful to everybody at Swift for their incredible continued support. The total amount raised is truly staggering and will go directly to help people living with cancer through many of our Macmillan services.

Over the last 27 years, Swift Group has also supported Macmillan Cancer Support with regular coffee mornings and dress-down days, so far raising a total of £100,000 for the charity.
