SAFE working at a Doncaster pipe manufacturer has helped cash flow into a cancer charity’s coffers.

Polypipe, based at Neale Road, Edlington, has donated £2,000 to Macmillan Cancer Support as a result of a pledge to give £10 per employee to the charity when it reached 1,000 days without an accident that caused them to lose time at work.

“This scheme continues to deliver impressively,” said Polypipe health and safety manager Jean Illingworth.

“It is a win, win, win scheme!” she added. “The employees win as their extra vigilance means no one gets hurt, the management win as they don’t have people off sick, and the charity wins as it gets the cash!”

Macmillan fundraiser Amy Hebdon said: “This donation means so much to us.

“We do a huge amount of work across the country and we rely so much on this kind of donation to fund the excellent work we do as we try to reach everyone with cancer.”
