James Kenealey 50 weeks of giving
Morson have marked the second week of our 50 Weeks of Giving initiative with a donation to Salford-based homeless drop-in centre Loaves and Fishes.
Salford Loaves and Fishes was formed after the closure of the previous Salford Cathedral drop-in centre by teaming up with Manchester City Mission. The centre offers provision for homeless, isolated and vulnerable people of all faiths in the region.
The cheque for £500 was presented to the centre by Morson Charity Committee chairman David Robinson.
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.
Among the services offered by Loaves and Fishes include hot food and drinks, clothing, access to doctors and dentists and support for drug & alcohol addiction. This is in addition to facilities including arts and crafts, bingo and pool.
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.
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.
