Following the completion of the financial year, the Chester-based C&C Group has shared its success with a variety of local charities, many of which are particularly special to members of the team.
Thousands of pounds were distributed between the charities, along with several tours of the facilities to appreciate the works that many of these organisations do.
C&C Catering Equipment, along with subsidiary companies C&C Catering Engineers and C&C Catering Fabrications, donated to a total of nine charities, including Hospice of the Good Shepherd, Claire House Children’s Hospice, Lyndale Cancer Support Centre, Parkinsons UK, Teenage Cancer Trust, Blind Veterans UK, Breast Cancer Now, Tattenhall First Responders, and Hope House.
The companies have supported local groups for many years, with C&C Catering Equipment’s most recent donation taking the total raised for Claire House to over £37,900.
The support has been gratefully received from the organisations, with Breast Cancer Now commenting: “What a lovely group of people. Thank you for your support everyone. You’re helping to make life-saving breast cancer research happen.”
C&C Catering Equipment’s MD Peter Kitchin added: “We are delighted to support these incredible organisations, and grateful to be in a position to do so.
“For several of our team, the charities we have chosen are particularly close to their hearts. This includes Breast Cancer Now for C&C Catering Engineer’s Cerys, Teenage Cancer Trust for C&C Catering Equipment’s Trevor, and Lyndale Cancer Support Centre for C&C Catering Fabrication’s Mick. We’re pleased to share our success with some very worthy organisations, and thank them for the hard work that they do.”
Lyndale Cancer Support Centre is a voluntary group and charity in Knowsley, providing help and care to people affected by cancer, and their friends and families. The charity has played an important role for many members of the community, including C&C Catering Fabrications’ Mick Smith, following the charity’s support of his mother.
C&C Catering Fabrications MD Greg Swift commented: “It’s great to be able to support the local community following the conclusion of our financial year. Along with C&C Catering Equipment and C&C Catering Engineers, we’re proud to have given back to those who are making a positive impact.
“This charity is particularly important to us, and we understand the group were pleased to receive the donation. We hope it supports all the hard work they do.”
