James Trumper, Finance Director, is pictured presenting a cheque for £2700 to Catherine North, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support in Gloucestershire. The money was donated by the staff of UKPS at the Company’s Annual Christmas Party in memory of their colleague Simon Sapherson who sadly lost his battle with cancer.
Catherine North said:
“The money raised by the staff would support patients and their families in Gloucestershire living with cancer. It costs £28 an hour to fund a Macmillan Nurse and any level of support makes a huge difference to Macmillan and to the people that we support. Last year the Macmillan Welfare Benefits team gave almost £60,000 of Macmillan Grants to 137 local people who were struggling financially. Macmillan relies entirely on donations and fundraising to support all our services and we couldn’t do it without the generosity of local businesses such as UKPS.”
