Xeretec makes charitable donation to local cancer support charity in time for Christmas

A leading managed print services provider has made a charitable contribution to an Aberdeen charity, in place of sending Christmas cards this year.

Xeretec Scotland, which supplies Xerox machines and services including printers and copiers throughout the UK and Europe, has chosen to donate £750 to cancer support charity, Maggie’s Aberdeen, instead of continuing to send Christmas cards.

The firm, which has offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Dundee, Inverness and Elgin, has donated a total of £1,850 to three deserving charities across the UK and Ireland this festive season.

Xeretec’s Aberdeen office selected Maggie’s Aberdeen due to its hard work and dedicated efforts in supporting cancer sufferers, and their loved ones, in the North-east. The charity operates from the pebble-shaped Elizabeth Montgomerie building and provides free practical, emotional and social support to people with cancer.

Megan Davies, fundraising organiser at Maggie’s Aberdeen, said: “We would like to say a huge thank you to Xeretec for their generous donation. All of the funds raised for Maggie’s goes directly back into our centre in Aberdeen, so their donation will go a long way in supporting people with cancer, as well as their friends and family.”

Managing director of Xeretec Scotland, John Sheran, said: “All of us at Xeretec are thrilled to have been able to support a fantastic, local charity like Maggie’s Aberdeen. They do a great job supporting a large number of people who have been affected by cancer and we’re very please that our donation will help make a difference.

“Our clients have been extremely supportive of the initiative and are pleased that the money is being put to good use. Cancer is something that affects so many of us, so it’s great that the donation will be used to help improve the lives of those who visit the centre.”
