MORSON CHARITY ACTIVITY 2017 | From bike rides to sky dives, take a look at what we got up to in 2017 >

As one of our Core Values, charity is of fundamental importance to Morson and over the last decade we have raised hundreds of thousands for dozens of charitable organisations across the country.

The Morson Charity Committee was founded in 2007, and each year our employees vote to select two charitable organisations to raise vital funds for - one local organisation and one national. The nomination of a local charity often stems from the personal experience of an employee and Morson is proud to support and promote awareness of a worthwhile cause in our region.

Our fundraising efforts are driven by our employees and the Charity Committee. In 2017, we raised £110,000 for The Christie and Alzheimer's Society through a golf day, our annual bike ride, cake sales, raffles, a skydive and much more.

“Its been another incredibly successful year of fundraising once again. This year has been great because we’ve seen a number of new events that we’ve not done before and they’ve all been a huge success, raising thousands of pounds for great causes.” David Robinson | Chairman of the Charity Committee

In 2018 our two chosen charities, as voted for by Morson employees are Francis House and MIND.

    Morson Launch 50th Anniversary Celebrations with '50 Weeks of Giving' Campaign

    Morson launch 50th anniversary celebrations by pledging to donate to 50 different worthy causes throughout the year. In 2019 Morson will celebrate half a century in business. To honour this land mark we have embarked on a programme of events, with charity and community at the heart. During the next 12 months we plan for every office worldwide across the Group to take part, nominating a charity in that region to support. Closer to home we are embarking to help the local community as part of our ’50 Weeks of Giving’ programme by providing donations each week to help schools, homeless shelters, elderly care homes, youth projects, animal welfare shelters and many other institutions in the Manchester area, beginning in January. In addition we will be working to raise money for our 2019 employee-chosen charities, Motor Neurone Disease Association and ABF The Soldier’s Charity. As part of the Armed Forces Covenant and a recipient of the Ministry of Defence Gold Award one of our charity nominations this year reflects our continued work towards helping ex-forces veterans into civilian careers. Through this activity we aim to have our best ever year of fundraising, giving £500,000 throughout the year and surpassing the record of £160,000 raised in 2016. In the last 10 years we've raised over £2million for worthy causes throughout the UK such as Salford University, the Seashell Trust, Destination Florida and Alzheimer's Society. Morson Group was formed by Gerry Mason, the late father of our current CEO Ged Mason, in the family home in Salford in 1969. Since formation, the head office of the company has never moved more than two miles away from its original location. We now occupy state-of-the-art premises on Centenary Way on the banks of the Manchester Ship Canal, and this relationship with the local area is something that we are keen to celebrate throughout the year. “Manchester has always been a fantastic and vibrant place to conduct business. From our first office at our family home, to our current corporate headquarters, we have enjoyed working within the diverse and exciting business culture Manchester provides and we are proud of our roots.” - Ged Mason, CEO Growing to become the third largest technical recruiter in the world and the UK’s leading aerospace and rail recruiter, turning over more than £900million, we have a proud history, providing talent to many major engineering projects such as Channel Tunnel, Crossrail, Airbus A380, A350 and Eurofighter aircraft as well as nuclear power stations Sellafield and Sizewell. To mark our land mark anniversary we will be releasing a commemorative book which will chart both the history of the business as well as the growth and development of Manchester itself with interviews and features from several famous Mancunians – many of whom are associated with Morson. A digital time capsule will amplify the celebration of our achievements through an immersive online experience, which will take the user through the company's past, present and future. Both of these initiatives will bring together Morson’s sporting ambassadors; from horse racing, to ex-Manchester United players, to former world champion boxers Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla and the newly-crowned WBA super middleweight world champion Callum Smith, to Sale Sharks and more. To give back to the people who make Morson a success, a celebration event in July will bring our employees from all over the world together. Ged is keen to take the opportunity of our 50th year to reflect on how the business has grown and look forward to the future. “It’s great to live up to the company core value of giving and sprinkling some star dust where we can. I'm very proud of the Morson family and where we are now. As much as we are looking back when we celebrate our birthday, it's important that we look forward and keep driving on, at all times remembering that our greatest asset is our people. As my father used to say, 'there is no finish line, and that is the challenge.'” Morson have been re-thinking recruitment since 1969. Click here to find your next opportunity with us.

    Callum Smith Champions Autism In And Out Of the Ring With Morson | 50 Weeks of Giving

    Morson have commenced our ’50 Weeks of Giving’ campaign by donating to a specialist school for cognition and learning in Liverpool attended by the sister of Morson-sponsored world super-middleweight champion boxer Callum Smith. The £1,000 donation was made to Redbridge High School at an intimate public Q&A with Callum and fellow boxing brothers Stephen and Paul at Shooter’s Bar in Liverpool. Their young sister Hollie Smith lives with autism and has been attending the community, co-educational secondary school for children with severe learning difficulties for over six years. The school relies on charitable donations to fund new projects to aid in the experience of its students, with the construction of a sensory play area a current major project. Headteacher Paul Cronin received the donation and spoke to about the school ahead of the Q&A. “We’re incredibly grateful to be receiving this donation from Morson and we thank the Smith brothers for everything they do to raise awareness for autism. This cheque will be going towards building a covered access path between buildings for the students” – Paul Cronin, headteacher Our ’50 Weeks of Giving’ programme will see us provide an individual donation each week to help worthy causes in the region. Coupled with our core annual charity activity, we aim to raise and donate £500,000 in total as we celebrate our 50th year in business. The Smith brothers are boxing's most successful family, scooping British, WBO and WBC titles between them. In 2013, the family made history when three of the brothers claimed the British light-middleweight (Liam), super-featherweight (Stephen), and super-middleweight (Paul) belts at the same time. In September 2018, youngest brother Callum added a WBSS win to the collection along with the WBA and Ring magazine super-middleweight world titles. All four brothers have worn the word ‘autism’ on their shorts throughout their careers in a bid to raise awareness. “Our Hollie is 18 now but she still can’t talk. She was only 18 months old and our mum came and sat us down and said Hollie is autistic. We looked at each other and we said ‘what’s that?’ We didn’t know. Just to stop other families going through the same thing we started wearing the word on our shorts, so they might have a little head-start as to what it was. When we looked into it we realised how broad the spectrum was. It’s that broad, you’re doing yourself a favour by looking into it.” – Stephen Smith Our 50 Weeks of Giving program will be in addition to the work to raise money for the employee-chosen charities in 2019, Motor Neurone Disease Association and ABF The Soldier’s Charity. In the last 10 years, we've raised over £2million for worthy causes throughout the UK such as the Seashell Trust, Destination Florida, Salford University, Alzheimer's Society and MIND. Our work with autism ties in with our 'Equal Opportinities' campaign, which solidifies our commitment to improving accessibility for people who engage with our business, ensuring there are no barriers in place to hold talented people back. A suite of accessibility tools, including solutions for visitors with dyslexia, visual impairment and learning difficulties, embedded into our website will enable 27% more of the UK population to access our online content than could previously. Further celebratory plans throughout the year will bring together Morson’s sporting ambassadors; from the horse racing world, ex-Manchester United players, to former world champion boxers Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla and Sale Sharks rugby club.

    Morson Donate to Irlam's #SaveTheManOnTheBench Campaign | 50 Weeks of Giving

    Morson have marked the third week of our 50 Weeks of Giving campaign by donating £500 to Hamilton Davies' trusts #SaveTheManOnTheBench campaign. Hamilton Davies trust are an Irlam-based charity. Founded in 2004, they provide charitable sypport to the local communities of Irlam, Cadishead (Salford) and Rixton-with-Glazebrook (Warrington). They support a variety of projects across the area by awarding grants in partnership with Salford City Council and other key stakeholders for the regeneration of the regions. Over the last 15 years, they've provided support in excess of £7million. The #SaveTheManOnTheBench campaign aims to regenerate a staple local statue of a nameless man who has been part of the Irlam community for over 40 years. Officially called 'At The End of The Day', the statue is known locally as 'The Man on the Bench' and is a full scale replica of a man in a flat cap relaxing on a bench. It was designed and produced by Simon Law, a local school boy who was studying O-Level Art at Irlam High School in 1978. Unfortunately, the statue has been damaged by vandals and requires repairs, including fixing a broken leg. As well as these repairs, the local community are keen to add a statue of a dog at the mans feet and recast it in bronze. This would requrie a total donation of £17,950. Our '50 Weeks of Giving' programme has seen us provide an individual donation each week to help worthy causes in the region. Coupled with our core annual charity activity, we aim to raise and donate £500,000 in total as we celebrate our 50th year in business. Our core charity activity will see us work to raise money for the employee-chosen charities in 2019, Motor Neurone Disease Association and ABF The Soldier's Charity.

As part of the Morson 50th anniversary local community charity activity for 2019, an additional donation of £3,888 has been made in order to pay for broadband internet packages for the homes for 18 months in total. Ged Mason, CEO of Morson Group, said “Charities that support young disadvantaged or homeless people, like Manchester Settlement, are vital, and it’s important that our industry does it all can to help support them. Stephen and I are delighted the funds raised from Pledge150 will go towards helping such a fantastic local cause to home more of our city’s young vulnerable people and giving them the support they need to live a healthy, happy life.” Manchester Settlement offer an individually tailored package of support which includes help with budgeting, form filling, claiming benefits, introduction to facilities and services, how to be a good neighbour and live independently and successfully in the community. Their experienced support staff also intensively support young people around budgeting, paying bills, accessing education, employment and training.
