Haulier reaffirms commitment to CancerCare

Despite Covid causing unprecedented pressures on the business community, a Heysham haulage firm has used the pandemic to reaffirm its commitment to CancerCare.

SCS Logistics have been supporting the charity since 2014 over which time it has raised more than £4,000 thanks to monthly donation of 1p for every pallet they move. The SCS team has also pledged their time to help fund the work we do by taking part in events such last year’s Virtual Santa Dash.

The firm is also an avid advocate of the work we do in the local community and it is helping spread the word and raise awareness far and wide by branding up 10 new lorry trailers with the CancerCare logo.

Owner Sandra Cottam-Shea said that supporting CancerCare was a vital part of their ethos as a business at the heart of their local community. 

“We support CancerCare because they address the ripple effect and practicalities of cancer which is a disease that has huge psychological implications on the patient and the family. We see CancerCare as an extended family that wrap their arms of support around the whole family and their values are similar to those we also have at our core here at SCS, she said.

Sandra said the last 12 months had been the hardest in their 10 years of trading, but they had been proactive in putting measures in place to mitigate the situation which had seen them emerge positively and with optimism for the coming year.  This is symbolised by the investment in the 10 new trailers from Dennison Trailers Ltd of Lancaster.

“We decided to embrace the Covid challenges in an attempt to make us stronger and more efficient operationally by putting robust systems in place and boost our resilience to enable us to keep on going on through a difficult and ever-changing situation.” said Sandra.

“The 10 new trailers are a really positive sign we are going in the right direction with assets to be proud of and taking Cancercare with us on the way forward,” she added.
