Exol continues to support numerous charities
Exol Lubricants, the UK’s largest independently owned oil blender, recently raised £218 for Macmillan as it hosted its own Macmillan Coffee Morning, as well as raising an additional £36 while hosting its Jeans for Genes event.
Macmillan offers businesses and individuals the opportunity to be a part of the world’s biggest fundraising event for tackling cancer. Exol supported the charity by hosting its own coffee morning with the team enjoying ‘a cake and cuppa’ with all donations being made to Macmillan. With £25million raised last year alone by companies in the UK, Exol were keen to support such a great cause.
Exol also participated in the Jeans for Genes Day as all money raised funds a range of initiatives that help to improve the quality of life of children and families affected by genetic disorders.
The Exol team enjoyed dressing down and attending work in their jeans rather than the regular, formal workwear while raising money for the worthy cause.
Steve Dunn, Exol Lubricants sales director, said: “It was great to see the Exol team come together and raise money for two very important charities in a fun and an enjoyable way. With one in three people now facing cancer and genetic disorders being the biggest killer of children under 14, the significance of both causes is evident and we, as a team, were keen to support both events.”
Exol is a big supporter of all charity work and its employees regularly get involved in raising money for various causes, such as by participating in charity football matches and fun runs, therefore the Macmillan Coffee Morning and Jeans for Genes Day were both warmly welcomed and encouraged by the entire Exol team.
