Published:  08 November, 2016

Tembé DIY and Building Products has raised £11,000 for Children with Cancer UK, with the money going towards research into finding cures and providing care for children with cancer. For every promotional pack of HIPPO Heavy Duty Trade Wipes sold, Tembé donated 50p to Children with Cancer.

Guy Malam, managing director of Tembé DIY & Building Products, along with other staff from the company, attended a cheque presentation at Children with Cancer UK's head office in Great Ormond Street, London on 4 November with Francesca Borrelli from Children with Cancer UK.

As well as raising money through the sales of HIPPO Heavy Duty Wipes, employees at Tembé DIY & Building Products raised money by taking part in various runs. Guy Malam and his fiancée Victoria Nicholson took part in this year's Virgin Money London Marathon, Kevin Heath took part in the Bournemouth Marathon, and seven members of the team took part in the Isle of Axholme Half Marathon.

Francesca Borrelli from Children with Cancer UK said: “We are delighted that Tembé DIY chose to support Children with Cancer UK this year. The fundraising efforts have been amazing and we cannot thank the team enough for their enthusiasm and commitment. Around 4,000 children and teenagers are diagnosed with cancer every year in the UK, which is why our work is so vital. This valued gift will massively contribute towards our life saving research, so from all of us at the charity, please accept our renewed and heartfelt thanks."
