ASH Group, who are one of the leading waste management firms in the North West and North Wales are donating all the proceeds of one of their metal waste skips to Pancreatic Cancer Action. The charity skip has been set up to raise funds as Paul Griffiths, one of the company’s drivers who has worked there for 18 years, has been recently diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.
The skip is based at their Metal Recycling Centre in Dunkirk and is an easy and simple way to get rid of any scrap metal that you may have at home and donate to charity at the same time. So whether you are looking to get rid of that old cooker or microwave, or have a rusty old bike in the garage, you can donate it today to the ASH Scrap Metal Charity Skip! The Skip is open Monday – Friday 8am to 5pm.
Managing Director of the ASH Group says: “We are delighted to support Pancreatic Cancer Action with our Charity Skip, to support our colleague Paul and raise awareness of the disease to a wider audience. Pan Act are a fantastic charity doing amazing work and we are delighted to be associated with such a worthy cause.”
Pancreatic cancer is the UK’s 5th biggest cancer killer. The survival rate is just 5% which is the lowest of any cancer.
Pancreatic Cancer Action is committed to working towards earlier diagnosis of the disease so that surgery, currently the only cure, is made available to the sufferer. The charity fund research into early diagnosis, provide medical education programmes, and launch awareness campaigns.
Ali Stunt, Founder of Pancreatic Cancer Action, said: “We are saddened to hear about the diagnosis of one of ASH Groups drivers but we are extremely grateful that they are helping raise awareness and funds with their metal waste skip.”
”We rely solely on donations from the public and it is thanks to the generosity of company’s like ASH Group that we can continue our vital work. Please back them in their fundraising efforts so that we can continue research into early diagnosis and raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.”
