On Saturday (18 June), a team of Macphie employees took part in ‘Pretty Muddy’ to raise money for Cancer Research.

So far, the Macphie team has raised £250 for Cancer Research UK who fund research to prevent and treat cancer.

Zoe Smart, Research and Development Technologist, said, “The event was great fun and a fantastic way to get to know colleagues from different departments. We’re already planning other events to take part in later in the year.”

Each year, Macphie donates a percentage of annual profits to local and national charities. Employees are also encouraged to take part in a range of fundraising events. This year, Macphie has already donated over £3000 to charities including Crohn’s and Colitis UK and Marie Curie. In a few months, another group of brave volunteers will be taking on The Beast Race in aid of charity.
