INVERURIE based Zenith Oilfield Technology employees recently concluded a month of fundraising activities, with the Zenith team raising £1390 in September for three charities dedicated to medical research and patient support.
Six staff members from Zenith Oilfield Technology conquered the Beast Race on Sunday (September 29) in support of Chest, Heart and Stroke Scotland (CHSS). Competing as the “Zenith Peak Performers,” the team completed the 10k outdoor obstacle course around Banchory, finishing in third place in the Mega Beast category.
In total, the team raised £700 for CHSS, a charity that aims to improve the quality of life for people in Scotland affected by chest, heart and stroke illness. The organization spearheads medical research, influencing public policy, advice and information and support in the community. With the help of volunteers like the Zenith team, CHSS is able to provide support to 10,000 people each year.
“This is a great achievement,” said Greg Davie, general manager of Zenith Oilfield Technology. “The whole team has worked tirelessly, with both their training and fundraising, and we are all proud of their efforts.”
Employees from Zenith also recently hosted a charity coffee morning in September to benefit two cancer organizations, Macmillan Cancer Support and Breast Cancer Campaign.
Half of the £690 total raised will be donated to Macmillan Cancer Support’s biggest fundraising event, “The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning.” The event builds on the Zenith team’s past success when in 2012, Zenith was among 115,000 people who signed up to the charity’s coffee morning, supporting the Macmillan therapists, nurses and support line workers who ensure people living with cancer have the best team in their corner.
The remaining half of the money raised will be gifted to Breast Cancer Campaign, whose pioneering approach to breast cancer research identifies and funds the projects with the greatest potential to save and improve lives and, ultimately, find a cure for breast cancer.
Zenith Oilfield Technology, estlished in 2004, and headquartered in Inverurie, employs over 120 staff operating out of more than 30 countries.
