West Midlands fundraises for leading cancer charity
10 January 2018
Underlining the charitable nature of many ECA activities, and ECA member and others industry contributions to charitable causes, leading charity Macmillan Cancer Support also received a funding boost, from the ECA’s West Midlands region. £1,000 was donated to Macmillan CS from the region’s recent Annual Dinner Dance, while a further £350 was raised during a coffee morning.
The West Midlands Dinner Dance was held towards the end of 2017 at the Copthorne Hotel in Dudley. Some 300 people attended the popular annual event, including members, manufacturers and distributors, who enjoyed dinner and entertainment, including a casino.
The events were organised by Sharon Davies, along with Kevin Davies, David Lewis, Mark Lynock, Bob Rowley, Margarite Rowley, Jean Billington and Steve Roberts.
In recent years the WM region has also donated £2,000 to Prostate Cancer causes, and has supported Help for Heroes, and the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
