Manchester, UK. EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has raised hundreds of pounds for Macmillan Cancer Support after auctioning off a signed Manchester United shirt.
Signed by the entire Manchester United squad, the shirt was donated by EDM’s freight partners, All Seas Global Logistics. EDM organised an online auction for the shirt during December to raise funds for the company’s chosen charity, Macmillan. After intense bidding up until the Christmas festive break, the shirt was finally won by Manchester based Recruitment Consultant, Jordan Borrow from Hexa Services, for a bid of £300.
“Very well done to EDM for creating the auction,” said Jordan. “As a season ticket holder and lifelong Manchester United fan I’m obviously very pleased to win the auction however I’m even happier the proceeds have gone to such a great cause. Good luck to EDM with their future fundraising initiatives.”
EDM raised over £6,500 for Macmillan Cancer Support in 2015. The charity aims to provide support to those with cancer from diagnosis through to treatment and beyond.
