NGK raises funds for charity

NGK has revealed it has raised £20,000 for Macmillan Cancer Support through a series of fund-raising events with the donation being enough to fund a key support worker for seven-and-a-half months.

NGK made the latest instalment following its attendance at last December’s Motorcycle Live Show at Birmingham’s NEC when bike enthusiasts purchased promotional products to help raise £7,876.09 for the charity.

NGK had already donated more than £12,000 since 2004, with the company adding the final £100 to take the amount through the £20,000 barrier.

Evie Wilson, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Thank you for choosing to support Macmillan, we are seeing a real strain on our services right now due to late diagnosis and delays in treatment, as well as a huge drop in income from the pandemic, so your support is truly appreciated.

That £20,000 could have funded a Macmillan Support Worker for 7.5 months, reaching many patients and families in that time and offering invaluable support at such a difficult period. Macmillan are 98% funded, so it truly is donations from companies like NGK Spark Plugs that allow us to run all.”

Mark Hallam, Marketing Manager, NGK Spark Plugs (UK), added: “We are delighted as a company to be able to help such a worthwhile charity as Macmillan Cancer Support. I would like to thank everyone who supported our fund-raising at Motorcycle Live and also at all the other various events we have attended over the years.”
