Ridgeons shares a milestone anniversary with Macmillan Cancer Support, its elected charity, as both celebrate turning 105 years old.

Ridgeons has taken part in numerous fundraising activities during its charity partnership with Macmillan. In the first year of support, Ridgeons raised £15,254 through charity runs, cake sales, quiz events and coffee mornings. The company recently raised £2,198 during a dedicated fundraising week for Macmillan. As fundraising activities continue throughout the next few months, Ridgeons expects to exceed its £20,000 target.

Jessica Levin, regional fundraising manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Sharing a 105-year anniversary with Ridgeons is certainly something to celebrate. Macmillan Cancer Support has grown significantly in its lifetime and the support we receive from companies like Ridgeons is vital to our continued success.”
