Amcor’s Year Long Support For Charity

Amcor, a packaging solutions company based in Swansea, raised over £2000 for their nominated charity Prostate Cymru in 2019.

Amcor is an international company that delivers flexible and rigid packaging for food, consumer products, medical and pharmaceutical companies. The Swansea centre is one of fourteen European locations and focuses on manufacturing the range of packaging.

The choice to support Prostate Cymru, the leading prostate health charity in Wales, in 2019 was a personal choice for the company who sadly lost one of their colleagues last year to prostate cancer. With a workforce of 200 men, Amcor were keen to raise awareness of prostate issues such as benign prostate disease and prostate cancer. The company worked closely with Prostate Cymru to organise a series of awareness talks to cover all shifts and reach their entire workforce to ensure that all members of staff had the opportunity to learn about prostate health.

In addition to raising awareness, the company held a number of fundraising events throughout the year to support the charity. Employees took on the Three Peaks challenge over the course of the Easter bank holiday weekend, scaling the three highest peaks in Britain: Ben Nevis (Scotland), Scafell Park (England) and Snowdon (Wales). The challenge was a great team bonding exercise with the team travelling together between peaks and encouraging each other to reach the summits of each mountain. They have also held seasonal raffles at Christmas and Easter and a Halloween Big Breakfast cake sale, helping to raise a grand total of £2480.05 for Prostate Cymru.
