19 August 2021 - At Röhlig Logistics we understand the vital importance of looking after our people. Our people are not just Röhlig employees, but also the wider communities around the world that we are actively involved with. The Röhlig Charity Program is Röhlig’s way of giving back to those in the wider community that need it most. After all, we are “always by your side”.

All employees at Röhlig UK were asked which charity they would like to support in the Röhlig Charity Program. After a series of polls, we were delighted to announce that we would be supporting World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF).

World Cancer Research Fund

World Cancer Research Fund is a leading authority on cancer prevention research related to diet, weight and physical activity.

Since it started in 1982, World Cancer Research Fund network has been a pioneer in research and health information on the link between food, nutrition, physical activity and the prevention of cancer.

They were the first cancer charity to:

  • Create awareness of the link between diet and cancer.
  • Fund research into diet and cancer prevention.
  • Collate and analyse all the global research on the links between diet, weight, physical activity and cancer, and translate the findings into practical, scientifically-proven recommendations on cancer prevention. These recommendations are for use by health professionals, individuals and governments worldwide.

The Hand-Over

On 19th August 2021, Röhlig UK and North Europe’s CEO, Gary Pryke, along with Rachael Longley (Regional HR Manager) and Rory Pickin (Sales and Marketing Assistant), visited WCRF at their headquarters in London to hand-over the donation. They were greeted by key representatives of WCRF; Gerard Cousins, (Director of Fundraising & Health Information), Priyanka Kotecha (Head of Events & Development) and Adam Daly (Corporate Fundraising Partnerships Manager). After hearing all about the amazing work that WCRF do in more detail, the representatives from both organisations went to WCRF’s courtyard for the official exchange of funds.

“Given the year that everybody has had to go through, Röhlig UK are very proud to support such an important cause. Cancer has affected so many people, and with the pandemic, there has been a huge backlog in patients being diagnosed and treated. We hope that our contribution can help those who need it the most and look to continue supporting WCRF and their great work.”Gary Pryke, CEO of North Europe at Röhlig Logistics.
