Family fun day raises more than £1,500 for Marie Curie

Leading Wolverhampton logistics company Pallet-Track raised more than £1,500 for its nominated 2018 charity Marie Curie at its annual family fun day.

The event, held at the firm’s Wolverhampton hub on Sunday, raised £1,532 for the charity, which supports people living with terminal illnesses and their families to make the most of the time they have together.

All staff were invited to attend with their families for the Caribbean-themed event, which featured fairground rides, a tug-of-war competition and a mini zoo.

The coffers were boosted by a raffle, with prizes donated by local businesses.

Nigel Parkes, Pallet-Track founder and managing director, said: “Our family fun day is always a highlight in our social calendar and this year’s event was no different.

“We were over the moon with amount of money we raised, which is a testament to the support our staff always give to this event

“We’re delighted to be able to hand over another sizeable sum of money to Marie Curie, which is a very worthwhile cause.”

The event followed Pallet-Track’s last major fundraiser for Marie Curie, when £8,000 was raised at its annual golf day, held at Morley Hayes Golf Club in Derbyshire in May.
