MANCHESTER, England, February 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

EDM, a leading global provider of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence sectors, announced today that it has beaten its 2015 fundraising target for Macmillan Cancer Support.

Employees from across the company spent last year organising and participating in a range of activities to raise money for people affected by cancer including a golf day, Halloween themed coffee morning, paper plane throwing competition, Go Sober, Lakeland 100 ultramarathon and Christmas raffle. Combining these fundraising initiatives with company donations, EDM raised over £6,500 for Macmillan in 2015.

"I'm very proud of our staff who have selflessly taken time out to raise funds for this fantastic charity," said Tony Bermingham, Managing Director of EDM. "2016 will be the third year of our partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and we're determined to raise even more funds for this fantastic charity over the next 12 months."  

"We're very grateful for EDM's fundraising efforts last year," said Becky Bainton, Macmillan's Fundraising Manager. "The monies raised will go towards providing vital emotional and practical support to people and their families affected by cancer. EDM has a track record of great fundraising initiatives and we look forward to working together in 2016."
