PJH names Macmillan as its Charity of the Year

PJH has announced it has selected Macmillan Cancer Support as its Charity of The Year, it aims to raise £10,000 in fundraising with the help of all PJH staff across the UK – it promises to match this amount once this target has been achieved.

The company, which is a KBB distributor, has already raised 3,000 from its fundraising events, including one held at the PJH Cannock Distribution Centre in the West Midlands and one at the Annual PJH Football Tournament, held in Bolton.

Katy Burns, PJH’s HR Business Partner, said: “We chose Macmillan as this year’s PJH charity partner, as it is such an amazing organisation that makes a huge difference to the lives of millions of people affected by cancer.

“Macmillan is funded by voluntary donations, so fundraising is essential to ensure it can deliver vital cancer services, research and campaigns to achieve better cancer care, and support the cancer workforce.” 

Cannock colleagues hosted the inaugural Macmillan “launch” day, by organising a range of classic fundraising events, enabling all to get involved with the fun. Staff successfully arranged a Bake Sale, a Play Your Cards Right game, ‘Guess the name of the Teddy’ competition and a tombola with plenty of fantastic prizes to be won.

Meanwhile, PJH’s 2023 Football Tournament & Family Day attracted staff from all its sites. It was a day of team competition for the coveted trophy, enthusiastic cheers from the sidelines, and an opportunity to engage in the continued fundraising.

All PJH events present the opportunity to raise awareness of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity and communicate the incredibly important work it does in supporting people affected by cancer.
