Leading tyre manufacturer, Michelin, whose UK head office and commercial headquarters are located in Stoke-on-Trent have chosen to support Dougie Mac as their Charity of the Year 2019.
Employees at the site have selected Dougie Mac as much of the team have been touched in some way by the services offered by the hospice and the support given to its patients and families.
James Alderman, head of Michelin in the UK, said:
“Dougie Mac has cared for people in North Staffordshire for decades, providing exceptional support for people with life-limiting illnesses, their families and their carers. Many of our employees have personal experience of the dedication and sensitivity shown by the Dougie Mac team, and this is a chance for all of us at Michelin to help secure funds for a vital cause. Michelin employees are already developing fundraising projects, and we know they will have great fun raising a lot of money.
Donna Adams, Head of Lottery and Fundraising for Dougie Mac, commented:
“We are delighted that the team at Michelin have selected as their next charity partner and we look forward to hearing all about the fundraising ventures throughout the coming year.
It costs over £12million each year to deliver excellent care to over 3.000 people approaching end of life across North Staffordshire.
We are reliant on the generosity of local people and we are working closely within the business community to build successful partnerships that benefit the business as well as the charity.”
