Kitchen manufacturer Moores has donated a kitchen to Yorkshire Cancer Research to help complete their new fitness and wellbeing centre in Harrogate.
The new facility, which was officially open from Monday 9th October, offers a fitness, nutrition and wellbeing programme for cancer patients during and after their treatment. It also has a café serving fresh, locally sourced food and drink and a shop selling a wide range of clothing and accessories. Alongside this, the space provides an office for employees and volunteers to work from.
Julie Holliday, head of marketing at Moores, said: “Our kitchen donation means that the charity’s funds can be spent elsewhere and used to support live-saving cancer research in Yorkshire. Community is so important to Moores and we regularly fundraise or make kitchen donations to various local charities to reflect this. As a top employer across the region, we’re particularly keen to support Yorkshire Cancer Research and the tireless work carried out by this amazing charity.”
Juliet Glendinning, director at Yorkshire Cancer Research, added: “‘We are extremely grateful to Moores for donating this fabulous kitchen. Thanks to their generosity, we have been able to reduce the construction costs of our new centre, meaning more of our funds can go into supporting vital cancer research.”
