Leading heating manufacturer, Vokèra, has raised an impressive £2000 so far for the children’s cancer charity, CLIC Sargent.

Voted by staff as Vokèra’s sponsored charity for 2012 and 2013, CLIC Sargent provides critical funding, care and support for children suffering with Cancer and Leukaemia and their families. Vokèra’s 100-strong workforce participated in a myriad of fundraising events, including a Spring Auction of goods in their Bradford Centre, Golf Days in each region and a company-focused quiz.

Alan Dunlop, Vokèra’s Regional Service Manager and his friends went an extra 50 miles for the cause by cycling from Glasgow to Edinburgh as part of 'Pedal for Scotland'. Personal weight-loss targets, the best Valentines’ day chat-up lines and Pumpkin Carving competitions also played a significant part in contributing to the sum, which was personally handed over to Louise Oakley, a representative of the charity, by Alan Dunlop and Vokèra’s Marketing Director, Eleanor Fox on 19thFebruary 2013.

“Here at Vokèra, charity support is very important. We all enjoy a great working environment and really care about our staff, our customers as well as the community at large”, says Eleanor. “We’re all delighted with the amount everyone’s raised for CLIC Sargent – it’s been great fun, it’s a fantastic cause and I know we’re all looking forward to raising more in 2013.”
