It is with great sadness that we announce that our friend and colleague Emma Davies passed away in her sleep in the early hours of the morning of Friday 22nd March 2019.
Emma suffered from CHARGE syndrome, a rare genetic condition that causes heart and respiratory problems, restricting growth and severely limiting vision and hearing. She began working for Morson in 2011 after spending time as a student at the Seashell Trust, a school for children with profound disabilities with whom Morson has had a long-standing association.
After graduation, she moved to House Martins supported accommodation in Salford and lived with four housemates and carers. While at Morson, she worked two hours a day, four days a week and helped our facilities team with daily admin tasks including post, helping with internal deliveries and maintaining the breakout areas.
Emma made a huge contribution to the daily operations of the facilities team, taking care of time-consuming tasks to free up other members of the team to do other things. She integrated herself into the team excellently, becoming a vital member of the group. Her enthusiasm and bubbly personality brightened everyone's day who worked with her.
In November 2017, Emma's long service to the business was honoured with a special party at head office, with the company paying for a trip to Disneyland Paris as a thank you for her efforts.
"It always made my day to recieve a hug off Emma and it made me take stock of what is important in life. Emma was an amazing young woman and role model for people facing challenges due to their disabilities." - CEO Ged Mason
Our thoughts go out to Emma's family and the team at the House Martins who have cared for Emma around the clock over her last few weeks at the hospice.
RIP Emma, from all at Morson.
