Mole Avon & Tama UAT Present 1000 to Local Cancer Charity
Mole Avon & Tama UAT Present 1000 to Local Cancer Charity

Mole Avon Town & Country Stores and Tama UAT were delighted to present a cheque for £1000 to Cancer Research UK through the Okehampton Starlight Ladies recently. The local charity, which raises money for cancer, was very pleased with the donation.

Last summer Tama UAT made a limited production run of pink and black netwrap to raise awareness of breast cancer in rural communities. They teamed with the largest UK agricultural buying group United Farmers, whose members in the South West include Mole Avon Town & Country Stores, to exclusively distribute the limited quantity of pink net. The pink net is used by farmers to wrap bales of silage, hay and straw at the time it is made in the field.

Tama donated a percentage from the sale of each special roll of pink striped netwrap to a local breast cancer charity.

The charity is one close to the hearts of staff and customers at the Okehampton branch of Mole Avon and staff were happy to raise money for breast cancer in remembrance of a much loved colleague and friend who passed away last year.

“Cancer is a disease that has affected many of Mole Avon’s staff and customers, so we are pleased to be raising awareness in the rural community,” says Maria Cooper, Store Manager, “We are happy to support the Okehampton Starlight Ladies in memory of Jackie.

Mole Avon, in Exeter Road, Okehampton are continuing to fundraise for this worthy cause for 2016 and events have already started including a cake sale which raised in excess of £1000. More events and fundraisers are to follow, and another extremely popular fashion show is on the agenda… keep your diaries free for 7th and 8th October 2016!!
