Newtown construction firm raises charity cash

Created on 27/07/2023 @ 13:44
A Newtown business has raised more than £4,300 for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity through a range of events.

EvaBuild raised the majority of the money at the Newtown 10k in May when six employees took part in the inaugural race.

Collections at company social events were also donated to the fundraising pot which was boosted by a generous contribution from the company itself.  Enterprise-Rent-A-Car also donated £1500 which also helped to swell the final fundraising total.

Stephen Lowe, from Enterprise came to the company’s headquarters in Newtown to personally hand over the cheque, and earlier in the month, Sue Reece, Macmillan Relationship Fundraising Manager also received a giant cheque from EvaBuild.

Speaking about the funds raised for Macmillan, Managing Director, Nick Evans, said: “We chose to support Macmillan as we have all been touched very recently by colleagues’ families who have been affected by cancer and this gave us the inspiration to get fit and take on the challenge to raise money for such a good cause.”

Talking about the donation, Sue Reece, said: “We’re grateful for the donation from EvaBuild. It’s been fantastic so see the enthusiasm and determination that everyone has brought to the fundraising challenge.

“I’d like to thank everyone who ran the 10K, and those who supported their running challenge. I’d also like to thank Enterprise for their generous donation.

“Support for people living with cancer is needed now more than ever, and it’s only with the help of brilliant fundraisers that Macmillan can be there to help people living with cancer.”

Every year in Powys, approximately 1,000 people receive the news of a cancer diagnosis and the money raised by our supporters, funds initiatives and services that help people in Wales living with cancer.

One local example is the innovative Improving the Cancer Journey in Powys (ICJ Powys) programme. ICJ Powys works to ensure that each and every resident receiving a diagnosis is offered the chance to talk through all their thoughts, concerns and worries in confidence with a trained link worker who has local knowledge about the support that is available closer to home.

Macmillan Cancer Support relies mostly on public donations to make a difference. To donate, volunteer, raise money or campaign with Macmillan, please visit the website at
