Plastics Company ride coast to coast for charity

September was a busy month for Omega Plastics, on top of organising two trade shows some of their team took part in charity events; the Coast to Coast bike ride and the Hartlepool Hospice Golf Day.

The Coast to Coast bike ride took place on the second weekend of September and was all in aid of Cancer Research UK

With the aim to ‘beat cancer sooner’ Cancer Research UK funds research that helps to discover new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Over the past 40 years, researchers have made constant progress and the survival rate has doubled.

Omega Plastics managed to raise just over £600 with their efforts.

Hosted at the Wynyard Hall Golf Club, the Hartlepool Hospice Golf day was a great success.

A few members of Omega Plastics team attended the event on the 18th September to help raise money and awareness.

The Hartlepool and District Hospice believes that each individual affected by a life limiting illness is unique and has the right to the highest quality of life possible. They offer an extensive range of palliative care and support services to individuals with complex needs and their families at their time of need.

However with just 24% of funding from the Government the Hospice must raise a substantial amount of money each year in order to maintain their fantastic services and their golf day is one of many annual events.

This year was their most successful golf day and one of the most profitable events they have ever hosted as a whopping £28,300 was raised!
