UTax takes a swing at cancer

Staff at a document management specialist have raised more than £1,000 for a blood cancer research charity in memory of a colleague who died from the condition.

UTAX (UK) Raised £1,100 for Bloodwise at their annual golf and partner day.

The event, organised by Rhodium Events & Hospitality, was held at Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel & Country Club.

Shaun Wilkinson, managing director of UTAX (UK) said: "“We continue to focus our efforts on raising money for Bloodwise as the official UTAX (UK) charity.

"This is a charity close to the hearts of all at UTAX (UK) as a result of sadly losing our beloved colleague Tracy Lawrance in 2014.

"We would like to formally take the opportunity to thank all those who participated and assisted in raising an amazing £1,100 for this great cause.

"Our annual golf day is an opportunity to thank our partners for their valued and loyal support. It also gives me and my team an important opportunity to network with them and to discuss our products and solutions and in turn for them to meet each other and exchange their news, views and ideas for continued growth.”

Claire Horrex, regional manager South West for Bloodwise, said: “I’d like to thank everyone at UTAX and their clients for all their support of Bloodwise at their recent partner golf day held in memory of their colleague Tracy.

"They’ve raised a fantastic amount and this will go directly towards helping patients with blood cancer and their families.

"Bloodwise could not continue to do the work that we do without the support of people like UTAX, thank you for all your hard work at organising such a successful fundraising day.”
