Norbrook staff get moo-ving to help Action Cancer
Charity push to raise funds after Covid 'turned off tap'
Staff at pharmaceutical giants Norbrook are on the move to raise funds for local cancer charity Action Cancer.
Throughout all of March, April and May the Northern Ireland sales and customer service will be running, walking, cycling a minimum of 2021km collectively to help raise funds and get as active as possible.
Action Cancer must raise £4m each year in order to deliver its range of cancer prevention, detection and support services and throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, the charity has remained open to help where it can.
Corporate fundraising manager Lucy McCusker said: “I’d like to say a massive thank you to the brilliantly enthusiastic team at Norbrook Laboratories for getting this challenge ‘Black Bull on the Moo-ve’ up and running.
‘Tap turned off’
“When the pandemic hit it was literally like a tap being turned off all of our traditional sources of fundraising. We are very fortunate to have the support of local businesses like the team at Norbrook to enable us to continue to bring in the funds. These relationships are invaluable to us.
Brendan McVeigh, regional head of sales and marketing Ireland Norbrook added: “As the evenings get lighter there is no better time to put a spring in our step, get up from our kitchen tables and get outside in the fresh air with our families, whilst raising some much-needed funds for Action Cancer.
“Cancer has touched the lives of us all. Each team member has a story to tell and a personal reason to take part and we hope you can support us for this really worthy cause.”
