Konica Minolta employees collect chocolate eggs for children’s charities

KONICA Minolta Business Solutions (UK) has been gathering chocolate egg donations to distribute among two charities, Dynamic and Candlelighters.

The organisations are recipients of the company’s ongoing support, through volunteering and fundraising efforts taking place throughout the year. The chocolate treats collected by Konica Minolta’s employee-run social impact group.

The Dynamic centre for children and young people with disabilities provides help and support to children and families with disabilities in and around Wrexham, whilst Candlelighters is a Yorkshire charity helping families dealing with children’s cancer.

Marie Woodhead, partner marketing manager at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK), helped organise the collection and said, “Being able to help these charities and the families who rely on them is such a rewarding experience. By working together as a team and with Konica Minolta’s resources, we can do so much more than we ever could individually.”

Iain Blackwood Hobbs, partnerships executive, Candlelighters, commented, “From everyone at Candlelighters, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Konica Minolta, not just for their fundraising but for also donating the chocolate eggs. This lovely gesture will bring some joy to the children at Leeds Children’s Hospital, and to their families affected by childhood cancer this Easter.”

Gillian Anderson, environment, social & governance partner at Konica Minolta Business Solutions (UK), added, “I am extremely proud of the hard work our social impact group are doing for the charities our employees have voted to support this year. From collecting chocolate eggs to spending the day volunteering, we want to help make a meaningful difference to those who deserve it most.”
