A waste and recycling company in Ely has partnered with Macmillan Cancer Support in a bid to raise £12,000 over the next 12 months.
Ellgia say they are pleased to be working with Macmillan again after last year’s BMW Berlin Marathon achievements.
Managing director Steve Crook and technical director Cameron Murdoch took on the challenge to complete the Berlin Marathon on September 24 2017.
They completed the course and raised more than £5000 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
This year, a calendar of events will be scheduled to encourage participation from across the whole company.
