Staff at Seagate Technologies in Springtown have announced a charity partnership with Cancer Research UK.

Richard Gamble, Equipment Director at the Springtown Plant, said, “Cancer affects so many people and many friends, loved ones and colleagues have been touched by it. That’s why at Seagate we’re committed to raising as much money as we can to help beat cancer sooner.

“I am confident that our enthusiastic teams will pull out all the stops to reach our goal. We have all kinds of fundraising events in the pipeline. Our employees will also be taking part in Slide On Cancer this summer.”

Sharon Arbuckle, Fundraising Manager at Cancer Research UK said, “Every hour, someone in Northern Ireland is diagnosed with cancer.

“It’s fantastic that Seagate have pledged to raise money for us in the coming year and we wish them the best of luck with their fundraising.

“The funds will be spent locally at Altnagelvin where we are currently running clinical trials, helping to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.”
