DMC Canotec has smashed its charity fund-raising target for the second
quarter in a row, reaching its half-year goal an entire month early.
The Croydon-based distributor is aiming to raise £10,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, which grants once-in-a-lifetime wishes for seriously and terminally ill children. It is doing this through staff fund-raising activities and by making a 25p donation for every planitgreen toner sold.
DMC Canotec hit its Q1 target of £2,500 in the first week of June and repeated the achievement in Q2, reaching its £5,000 goal at the start of September.
By the middle of the month, it had already raised £6,617.86, enough for 25 Starlight Distraction Boxes, 167 places at a Starlight Partyand 129Starlight Pantomime places.
DMC Canotec employees have played a big part in this success, giving up their spare time to raise funds through a variety of activities, from hill walking and long distance running to swimming and charity car boot sales.
