MCC Labels raise vital funds for local lifesaving charity
Funds raised during a staff and family open day at MCC Labels in Daventry, Northamptonshire, have tipped the total amount raised to over £3,000 in support of the lifesaving Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance (WNAA).
MCC Labels (Multi-Color Corporation) is a global supplier of premium label solutions situated at over 121 sites for a variety of markets – automotive & chemicals, beverage, durables & technical, food & dairy, healthcare, home care & laundry, personal care & beauty and wine & spirits.
The organisation’s open day was a culmination of this year’s fundraising activities which included factory tours, children’s amusements and a tombola stall – raising a total of £3,043 to support the lifesaving service.
Funding such as this means the Warwickshire and Northamptonshire Air Ambulance crews are available 24/7, 365 days a year to deliver lifesaving critical care at road traffic collisions, sports events, medical emergencies – such as cardiac arrest and accidents at home – and other incidents needing expert pre-hospital medical interventions.
Speaking on behalf of the charity, WNAA Volunteer Keith Brown said:
“We would like to say a big thank you to everyone at MCC Labels for their generous donations, funding such as this ensures that our service can remain operational and helps our patients to receive the best pre-hospital critical care as quickly and safely as possible, 24/7 and 365 days a year.
“The charity receives no government funding and with every vital mission undertaken costing the charity £1,700, we are extremely grateful for support such as this.”
The charity is celebrating its 20th anniversary of lifesaving service across Warwickshire and Northamptonshire in 2023. To help mark the momentous milestone the charity is asking for supporters to send in any photos, footage, clippings, or share their stories to help showcase how well the service has developed over the years into the leading provider of pre-hospital critical care it is today.
