EMPLOYEES of the Coca-Cola plant at Lambeg took
to the stage of Belfast s Empire recently to raise �7,000 for
Marie Curie Cancer Care.
During the '7 X Factor' talent event they mimicked their
favourite idols and wooed audiences with their star quality in a
bid to raise vital funds for the local cancer charity.
Hosted by Christine Bleakley, the show featured 12 acts, from
Tina Turner to The Village People, and a winning performance
from Natalie Chambers as Eva Cassidy.
Former X Factor star Aaron Pollock, Cool Fm's Pete Snodden and
vocal coach Diane Comberton had the tough job of judging the X
Factor hopefuls on the night.
Maire Campbell, Public Affairs and Communications Manager, said:
"As a company we are passionate about benefiting local charities
and making a difference. 7X Factor provided the perfect
opportunity for staff at all levels within the organisation to
get involved in a fun fundraising event.
"Staff really got into the spirit of 7X Factor and we are
delighted to support a local charity such as Marie Curie Cancer
"Cancer is something that affects all our lives in some way and
we feel incredibly privileged to be able to support the good
work that the charity does to help local families and people
living with a terminal illness."
