Jangro, the UK & Ireland’s largest network of independent janitorial and cleaning distributors, has reached its fundraising goal for MacMillan Cancer Support.
Working in partnership with this worthy charity since 2013, Jangro pledged to raise £100,000 to help them support people living with cancer.
Jangro members have undertaken many varied fundraising initiatives in a bid to meet this target. Sponsored walks, cycle rides, triathlons, marathons, raffles, auctions, and coffee mornings have all contributed to raise this incredible sum of money.
Fundraising has also become a key part of Jangro’s regular supplier and member days. Thanks to the generosity of its membership and suppliers at one of these events in October 2021, £1,215 was donated, tipping the grand total raised to more than £100,000!
Jangro CEO, Joanne Gilliard, said: “We are immensely proud to have raised such a phenomenal amount of money for this very worthy charity. We have received fantastic support from all the Jangro members, staff and group suppliers and I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone for their amazing efforts. £100,000 is an astonishing achievement and you are all awesome!”
She continued: “MacMillan Cancer Support does so much great work. I know that this donation will really help them to support so many people with cancer to live life as fully as they can.”
Cheryl Jenkinson, Corporate Relationship Fundraising Manager at MacMillan Cancer Support, added: “At Macmillan we are so grateful to companies like Jangro who raise vital funds for people living with cancer, who currently, need our help now more than ever before. The income that Jangro has raised will help fund a Macmillan Nurse for 85 weeks. Our trained nurses can address the all-round needs of people living with cancer. Thank you team Jangro Ltd we really appreciate your support.”
