Jewson puts its best foot forward for Macmillan

The Jewson contractor sales team have donned their trainers to walk the London Marathon Route for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Jewson puts its best foot forward for Macmillan

The 24-strong team walked the 26.2 mile route, helping to raise over £6,000 for the charity.

David Hill, Jewson event organiser, said: “Macmillan’s support is absolutely vital to those with cancer and their families, so we were more than happy to put on our walking shoes and put up with a few blisters for such a great cause.”

The money raised by the contractor sales team will be used to fund Macmillan nurses.

In addition, Jewson’s parent company, Saint-Gobain, is supporting Macmillan Cancer Support as part of a two-year partnership that started in 2014.

During the campaign, Saint-Gobain has helped the charity engage with hard to reach groups on issues including male cancer and sun awareness.
