Inkjet technology specialist Xaar has celebrated the first year of its three-year partnership with Break, after employees raised an amazing £18,610 – and with a matched donation from the company, this has brought the total donation to over £37k.

Employees based in Cambridge, Huntingdon, Kettering and Hemel Hempstead took part in a wide range of fundraising activities including golf days, multiple people running a half-marathon, sweepstakes, cakes sales, a sponsored silence and the Three Peaks Challenge.

“It has been a privilege working with Xaar to reach this phenomenal fundraising total for Break,” comments Break CEO Rachel Cowdry.

“We’ve loved getting to know the Xaar team and we have been incredibly inspired by the generosity, kindness and dedication they have shown.The money raised by will go towards making brighter futures for vulnerable young people in the region and everyone at Break is really looking forward to continuing our partnership with Xaar over the next two years.”

Xaar Group’s second year of fundraising for the charity is well underway with many fundraising challenges planned in upcoming months including a sky dive this May.

Neil Ross, Sustainability Manager at Xaar, added: “We are so pleased to have been able to raise such a significant donation for our charity partner, Break.
