Mazak gears up for charity bonanza to raise funds for Cancer Research UK
Yamazaki Mazak is gearing up for a serious summer of charity as it aims to raise funds for Cancer Research UK.
The machine tool manufacturer, which is located in Badgeworth Drive and employees over 900 people in the Worcester area, will be running a number of initiatives throughout the summer as it aims to raise a four-figure sum to support those who have been affected by cancer.
Taking place on Thursday 2nd and Friday 3rd August, Mazak will be holding its biggest ever charity cake sale, with two of the company’s corporate catering partners donating over 600 cakes to the cause.
The company will also be running a raffle, with prizes ranging from £100 Amazon vouchers and a mountain bike to an ‘Afternoon Tea for Two’ and an overnight stay at the Worcester Whitehouse Hotel.
On Saturday 11th August, a number of employees will also be climbing Mount Snowdon, to also raise money Cancer Research UK.
Richard Smith, European Group Managing Director at Yamazaki Mazak, commented: “Cancer is a terrible disease which has touched too many people in this world. The fighting spirit we have witnessed from those battling cancer has been a true inspiration, and we hope the money raised this summer will help Cancer Research UK continue its admirable work in defeating the disease.
“Many of our commercial partners, including caterers, merchandisers and designers, have made generous donations to facilitate our fundraising campaign; and I hope their generosity will be reciprocated by people digging deep for such a fantastic cause.”
