A charity night at MKM Dereham recently raised a fantastic £850 for the Movember Foundation.
The Movember Foundation raises awareness of and funds men’s health projects, tackling some of the biggest health issues faced by men including prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health.
Sarah Morton, customer sales co-ordinator at the branch said “Here at MKM Dereham we supply a variety of products and materials to not only the public but also to local trades. This can predominately be a male environment so perfectly aligned to raise awareness of the illnesses the Movember Foundation supports.”
The evening was a huge success with a variety of refreshments, music and a magician. More than 150 people attended, the main event being the charity raffle that raised a considerable amount with prizes donated by MKM and suppliers.
As well as the charity night, some staff from the branch raised even more by growing questionable facial hair throughout November.
After raising an initial £440, MKM Dereham went the extra mile by contacting the Lloyds Bank Matched Giving Scheme, which added a further £410 to the total, meaning the total raised for the Movember Foundation totaled at £850!
An additional £105 was also raised for the Poppy Appeal.
All the team at MKM Dereham would like to thank everyone that contributed to the donation and the success of the evening.
