Moy Park has raised a total of £44,000 to support its UK charity partner Marie Curie.
Since 2018, Moy Park team members have raised awareness and £22,000 in donations for the charity through a variety of activities, including mountain climbing, competing in marathons and cycle relays, and most recently hosting a virtual tea party, helping colleagues catch up and relax during lockdown. With the company match funding this figure, £44,000 will now be donated to Marie Curie.
All funds raised will help Marie Curie provide more free care to people with terminal illnesses in their own homes and at the charity’s nine hospices across the UK.
Anne Hannan, Partnerships Manager at Marie Curie said: “Our partnership with Moy Park has been fantastic with everyone in the company coming together as one big team with one goal, to support the work of Marie Curie across the country and improve the lives of people coping with terminal illness.”
Kirsty Wilkins, HR and Performance Director at Moy Park said: “Over the past year hosting traditional fundraising events has been tricky, so the money raised in that time really is a testament to the enthusiasm, energy and generosity of our Moy Park team members. Our thanks go to each and every one of our colleagues who donated, attended an event, or took part in a walk, trek or hike.”
