Having embarked on a 12 month Giving Back initiative with remanufactured toner brand Planitgreen, Croydon based distributor DMC Business Machines have hit their first quarterly target of raising £2,500 for Starlight Children’s Foundation. The aim for the first quarter was to raise enough money to fund 25 Starlight Distraction Boxes.
Distraction boxes contain fun toys, puzzles and games and are a useful tool used by doctors and nurses to distract seriously ill children from the tests and treatments they often endure on a daily basis.
DMC Business Machines have pledged to raise £10,000 for the children’s charity through on the box donations for every Planitgreen toner they sell, along with a number of fundraising events and sporting activities. These activities include a 5K run, The London ColorVibe 5K, The Purbeck Plod as well as a number of other office based fundraisers.
With Quarter 1 complete, DMC are pleased to announce that their first quarterly target of £2,500 was met by the first week of June, giving them a head start on their second quarterly focus of funding places at Starlight Parties. Starlight parties give hospitalised children the chance to enjoy face painting, party packs, fun games, party food, decorations and clowns to distract them for their illnesses.
Since the initiative began the business has raised in excess of £3,300, enough money to fund 25 distraction boxes and over 55 places at a Starlight party for hospitalised children.
