Staff from Copyrite Systems presented a cheque for over £5,000 to Roy Castle Cancer Foundation.

Named as the company’s chosen charity for 2017, Copyrite donated a percentage of sales from their printing products to the lung cancer charity, which raised an impressive £5,000.

Copyrite Systems are one of the UK’s most innovative companies which are passionate about collaboration, technology and communication.

Both companies are lending their support to this year’s Educate Awards, as headline sponsors.

The money raised will go towards Roy Castle’s charity work, which includes the youth charity Cut Films.

Cut Films is a unique project which aims to prevent children and young people from smoking.

A Cut Films youth worker, with professional filmmaking skills, helps groups of young people to create two-minute short films. The brief is simple: the film should persuade their peers not to smoke.

Founded in Liverpool in 1990, Roy Castle is the only UK charity to focus solely on lung cancer care. It funds more than £1 million worth of research every year and offers information and support through its helpline and support groups.

Paula Chadwick, chief executive of Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation, said: “Tackling the UK’s biggest cancer killer is a tough challenge. Copyrite Systems is helping us to educate people about key symptoms, such as a persistent cough which lasts for three weeks or more.

“The more we inform people about lung cancer, the more lives we will save. Thank you so much.”
