Industry digs deep for cancer support charity

21st September 2017

Generous support from across the industry has helped Emplas, Managing Director, Ryan Johnson raise more than £2,500 for cancer support charity, Macmillan.

Ryan completed the Great North Run in September, fundraising for Macmillan in memory of his late Nan, Jean Handy, who received support and palliative care from Macmillan nurses and the Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Kettering.

“The support I received from across the industry was incredible and I was really touched by how many people stepped up to support what is an amazing charity”, said Ryan. He continued: “This included a very generous contribution from Total Hardware.

“My Nan’s final days were very difficult but the support and palliative care she received from Macmillan nurses and the Cynthia Spencer Hospice, was exceptional and something which was a real comfort to all of us.

“That Macmillan does such important work based on charitable funding is incredible and I would like to thank all those who donated, for their generous support. Thank you all so much – and yes, despite what I think some people thought, I did make it round!”

The largest half marathon in the world, the Great North run, covers a tough 13.1 miles from Newcastle to South Shields.
