Staff at a leading refrigeration and air conditioning firm made a cool contribution of more than £3,000 for the Daisy Appeal after hosting a race night at their headquarters in Hull.
Airco welcomed clients and contacts to the race night which took place in the company’s business lounge at its head office in Goulton Street, Hull. The company is now planning future events at the same venue.
Airco colleagues Dean Hordon and Andy Stubbs organised the race night, which was particularly important to Dean, who has had treatment at Castle Hill Hospital for thyroid cancer.
We hosted a race night last year and raised a lot of money for another charity and we did very well again for the Daisy Appeal. Personally I think it went really well – we raised more than £3,000, over 70 people attended and we received some good feedback overall from a lot of the guests.
Samba Catering of Malmo Road on Sutton Fields Industrial Estate supplied the food and DJ Ollie from York provided the video races and music.
Claire Levy, Fundraiser at the Daisy Appeal, said:
We’re overwhelmed with the support we’re receiving from businesses in the Hull and Humber area and the effort they are putting in to support the Daisy Appeal as we work to improve accuracy and detection rates for cancer, heart disease and dementia in Hull, East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire.
