Charity Support - Macmillan Cancer Support
At Screed Giant we are dedicated to exercising Corporate Social Responsibility, which we believe should involve actively engaging in doing what we can to make a positive difference to the wider community, beyond the interests of our company.
As our company grows, we want to share our successes in a way which will truly make a positive impact within our community.
It is because of this belief that Screed Giant are proud supporters of Macmillan Cancer Support.
Children’s Halloween Charity Event – 30th & 31st October 2018.
The Woodside, a family pub in our local community, very kindly allowed us to use their function room to host a charity halloween event! On Tuesday 30th, we held a crafts evening – where children were provided with pumpkins to carve, halloween masks to decorate, and lots of halloween themed colouring! This was followed by a halloween party on the 31st, with a disco, party games, a buffet, party bags and lots of halloween themed prizes! Both events were covered by a £5 ticket, with all proceeds going to Macmillan Cancer Support. We also had ‘guess the name of the halloween teddy’ and ‘guess how man halloween sweets in a jar’ for extra donations to Macmillan!
A big well done to all of our team who worked hard to organise this, and a huge thankyou to the staff at The Woodside, Crewe for hosting the event and making it such a success!
Well – WE DID IT!!On Sunday 8th October, the Screed Giant team, along with Adam @ Adam Towers music completed the Llanberis Path up Mount Snowdon for Macmillan Cancer Support. It took a lot of determination and group motivation to get to the top, and more so back down again! (Although the coffee break at the top may have helped slightly!) So far we have managed to raise £900 for Macmillan, however we are still receiving sponsors on our Justgiving Page – you can find the link below. Any donations would be gratefully received, and will all help to raise money for a great cause.

Why we support Macmillan
We have chosen to support Macmillan as we feel that the charity does amazing work supporting people affected by cancer and their families and friends. We will all be affected by cancer in one way or another throughout our lives, and many will have experienced the amazing support of Macmillan, whether that be through the fantastic work of their nurses, support groups, bereavement counselling, financial help or any of the other amazing ways in which Macmillan support those affected by cancer.
We feel it is important to support the work of those trying to make life that bit easier for those who are going through the terrible ordeal of living with cancer. Without such support, it wouldn’t be possible for the charity to carry out the brilliant work they do.
