Volmary running for Life

Company: Volmary

The team at Volmary are well known locally for their charitable endeavours. In recent years they have contributed to local good causes such as the Wisbech Rose Fair, Parson Drove Pre-school and Wisbech in bloom to mention a few. The company employs over 150 local people and feels very strongly about the welfare of their staff and engaging with the local community. The apprenticeship programme aimed at young people has provided employment and training for 25 young apprentices in the last 5 years.

The management and staff wholeheartedly embrace local and national good causes, in recent years raising valuable funds for Children in Need, Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research at a national level and locally they support employees chosen charities and good causes such as Spalding Scouting association and Pidley Mountain Rescue, often linked to causes where employees have personally suffered and want to give something back to the community.

Again in 2018, a team of over 20 runners will be taking part in the annual Kings Lynn GEAR 10km run. A valued and cherished employee, Glinys Akred, who is suffering with lymph node Cancer, was asked to nominate a good cause she feels close to. She chose Cancer Research UK, a national charity dedicated to learning about and identifying cures for all Cancer related diseases. The whole team is very determined to raise our target of £2,500 to support Cancer research and Glinys and in helping to fight this disease and deal with the symptoms, many not physical.

Managing Director, Wayne Eady, said “I am so proud of my team at Volmary. They are like a big family and the support they give to one another both at work and in their social time is a credit to the human spirit. When a member of the Volmary family is affected by something, they rally round to do great things and every time show their commitment to their friends and colleagues”
