Both include the charity’s branded colours. For each product sold, a donation will be made to Cancer Research UK. The partnership aims to raise £100,000 in funds over the next two years. Customers also have the opportunity to personalise the cable packaging with the name of someone they’d like to commemorate through a ‘Name The Cable’ campaign.

PHMG

PHMG donates meals for FareShare & Action for Children

The campaign resulted in a final donation of 174,853 meals, which surpassed the original target.
