National construction supplier raises £1,500 for Mesothelioma UK
Mick George Ltd, one of the leading suppliers to the construction industry, has presented the first funds raised for Mesothelioma UK since the company joined the charity’s Corporate Donor Scheme in June 2017.
Mesothelioma UK is a national asbestos-related cancer charity, based in Leicestershire. As a Corporate Donor, Mick George Ltd is supporting Mesothelioma UK to confirm its commitment to raising awareness of the dangers of handling asbestos and recently presented a cheque for £1,500 as part of this agreement.
Michael George, Contracts Director at Mick George Ltd said: “The link between mesothelioma and the construction industry is particularly high and we want to play a part in its prevention. Through our comprehensive Asbestos Management service, we recognise that we have a responsibility to address any health related issues and that’s why we’re happy to support Mesothelioma UK to improve the situation.”
Liz Darlison, Mesothelioma UK Director of Services and Consultant Nurse at UHL, added: “The UK has the highest incidence of mesothelioma in the world and with asbestos being at the heart of this disease, there’s a real connection here with Mick George Ltd’s expertise in managing asbestos. We are very grateful for their support and the funds they raise for us will help us to raise awareness and help people affected by mesothelioma.”
Mick George Ltd will continue to be involved in fundraising events and activities for Mesothelioma UK with all funds going to awareness raising campaigns, training and education for Clinical Nurse Specialists, and research into treatment and clinical trials to find a cure for this deadly disease.
Mick George Ltd provides a range of specialist services including Asbestos Removal and the company has pledged to donate a percentage of the income generated from this particular service over the next 12 months to Mesothelioma UK.
