Forecourt Trader - 30 years at the heart of the fuel retailing community
Sewell on the go raises funds for Macmillan
Published:  28 September, 2016

Sewell on the go, which last month won the Forecourt Trader of the Year Award, has launched a fund-raising drive for Macmillan Cancer Support.

From September 29 to October 2, 15 pence from every hot drink sold in any of its 12 stores will be donated to the charity.

The fundraising period includes Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event on September 30 and collection tins in store will help add to the fundraising total.

It follows a similar in-store fundraiser in May this year, which raised £1,265.26 and marked the official start of Sewell on the go’s partnership with the charity.

Sewell on the go managing director Patrick Sewell said: “We’re delighted to give our backing to Macmillan Cancer Support.

“We hope our staff and customers will get behind this, as they do with our various other fundraising activities.

“Giving back is a big part of what we do and we hope the money raised will go some way to backing the fantastic work of Macmillan staff.”

Becky Baynes, Macmillan Fundraising Manager for Hull and East Yorkshire, said: “Sewell on the go’s coffee promotion in May had a positive impact on local cancer patients and their families.

“Macmillan is funded by donations alone and we could not keep helping people affected by cancer without the support of businesses like Sewell on the go.

“We hope the next event at all Sewell on the go branches during Macmillan’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning will raise even more, ensuring we can continue to provide medical, emotional and financial help to those that need it.

“We are looking forward to working together with Sewell on the Go again and thank everyone involved for their fabulous support.”
