Sidmouth M&Co’s cash for Cancer Research UK

PUBLISHED: 14:14 18 January 2012

KIND-HEARTED staff and customers at M&Co in Sidmouth have helped raise £860 for Cancer Research UK.

Workers at the High Street store have been grafting tirelessly in aid of the charity since 2008 - and the company has raised a whopping total of £850,000 for the cause.

A variety of fundraising activities took place at the Sidmouth branch that saw it become a ‘donation station’ for the month in October.

Customers donated unwanted clothes and received a £5 voucher in return to spend in any M&Co.

Staff also took part in fashion shows, raffles, and sponsored challenges.

All funds raised for Cancer Research UK will help to fund vital life saving research.

M&Co’s Andy McGeoch said: “It’s really fantastic that everyone has worked together to raise so much. We have given ourselves a target of raising a total of £1million for Cancer Research UK before July 2012, and will strive to achieve this.Employees throughout the company have made a real difference. I’d also like to thank our customers in the community for getting involved and helping us in our efforts.”
