MG employees have been working hard in both the kitchen and gym to raise money for Macmillan Cancer Support.
Last week (Friday 25 September), MG staff put their aprons on and whipped up cakes, biscuits and other tasty treats for the world’s biggest coffee morning in aid of Macmillan. Hundreds came together to tuck in and donate for a worthy cause that is close to many people’s hearts.
Over £500 was donated and this money will be added to a pot of money being raised by a group of people who are hoping to shake off the pounds gained from eating the cakes!
A team of 13 people, from the technical centre at MG Motor, will be challenging themselves to run over 13 miles for the Birmingham half marathon on Sunday 18th October.
Richard McAllister, team leader for the runners, has entered the event in memory of a colleague they lost to cancer last year. Richard said: “To remember Brian, I said I would try and carry out some fundraising every year to support Macmillan. Last year a lot of us took part in the Movember challenge and this year we’d thought we’d go one further by taking on 13 miles!
“Most of us have never run a half marathon before so it will be a challenge, but we are all committed. We hope to raise enough to reach our target, but we always strive for more.”
The team is working hard in training and fundraising to make sure they reach their target of £3,250.00 and they’re almost there! If you would like to support the MG team, you can sponsor them here.
