Employees at Inverurie’s Zenith Oilfield Technology perfected their baking skills recently to raise money for cancer charities.
The ladies hosted a charity coffee morning at the company’s headquarters recently and raised £236 for Macmillan Cancer Support and Breast Cancer Campaign.
The male contingent of the Zenith team gave donations in return for coffee and a selection of tasty tasty bites and the total will be split between the two charities which provide support to those fighting cancer and fund specialist research into the cure for breast cancer.
Karen Grant, marketing manager at Zenith, said: “All of the girls did a great job to put on such an impressive spread of homebakes. Our grandmothers would be proud! The guys all gave generous donations for their fine pieces and we’re proud to support these charities which help so many people in the north-east.”
Earlier this year a team of Zenith employees raised more than £2,100 for Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland by taking part in the charity’s White Water Rafting Challenge on the River Tay. Another team from the company also raised £532 for for Aberdeen-based charity Inspire this summer by taking part in the Grampian Country Fair’s Go-Karting Challenge.
The company, which employs 55 people at its Inverurie headquarters, scooped first prize at the 2011 Northern Star Business Awards for its commitment to research and development and also received a second Queen’s award last year for strong export sales.
Zenith has created 20 local jobs and is supporting the community.
