United Utilities’ customers and colleagues raise £52,000 for cancer charity

Customers and colleagues have helped United Utilities to raise £52,000 for Macmillan in the last 12 months.

Tough Mudder, rowing and cycling challenges are just some of the ways that the water company’s colleagues have helped to raise the cash. Customers have also contributed this year through the company’s Get Water fit app.

Macmillan has been United Utilities’ charity partner since 2017 and the company has now raised more than £400,000 for them. 

Adrienne McFarland, People Director at United Utilities said, “Our colleagues always go the extra mile to find new ways to raise money and this year has been no different.

“There have been some fantastic challenges completed by various teams and this has been matched by the generosity of our customers through their donations.

“Macmillan is a great cause that makes a real difference to the communities across the region we serve.”

Megan Kong, Senior Fundraising Manager at Macmillan said: “We are so lucky that United Utilities staff chose us as their charity of choice and it has been a pleasure to work alongside them.

“We’re thankful to colleagues and customers who raise as much as they can for those living with a diagnosis across the region. We will continue to work alongside them, encouraging them and reminding them of the huge impact they’re having in helping us to do whatever it takes to support those living with cancer. Thank you!”
