The P&A Group of companies based in Mold, North Wales last month announced Cancer Research UK as its new chosen charity for 2017.

Following the announcement, Managing Director Steve Morgan along with 24 other employees will be taking part in the 26 mile Manchester Marathon this Sunday.

Louise Aubrey, Cancer Research UK’s Senior Local Fundraising Manager said: “We are absolutely delighted that Steve and the team have decided to attempt such a great challenge to raise money for Cancer Research UK.

“They have done lots of preparation and we’re sure they’re going to have an amazing experience. We can’t thank them enough for all of their support and want to wish them all the very best for this Sunday.”

As a growing company P&A is committed to employee fitness and long-term well-being as well as supporting the community and raising money for charity. The Manchester Marathon is the ideal opportunity to do both as they have a goal to train for and CRUK is their new chosen charity for 2017.
The company have been supporting their marathon runners with a fitness plan that includes weekly personal training sessions and extra training during work time.

Louise added: “Cancer Research UK has made enormous progress in the fight against cancer and continues to do so. However, we have only been able to do this thanks to the dedication and commitment of our volunteers and supporters without whom we would not be able to fund our vital research.”

Managing Director, Steve Morgan said:

“There are so many people in our society that are living with or are effected in some way by this disease and everyone within our company feels privileged to be able to help this charity in the fight against cancer.

We’ve all trained tremendously hard and I hope our efforts at Manchester Marathon will encourage others to get involved by donating or raising funds for Cancer Research UK, enabling it to continue investing in its vital research, treatment and support that effects so many.”

Continuing to take part in events is very important for the company following the success of previous years when as a group they raised over £15,000.00 for The Alzheimer’s Society and over £6,000 last year for Meningitis Now, in memory of one of their own.
