James Kenealey 50 weeks of giving
CHARITY | 2 MIN READ
Morson continues 50 Weeks of Giving campaign through April.
Children's charities among the beneficiaries of almost £4,000 in donations.
Throughout the month of April, we donated £3,750 to various charities as part of our '50 Weeks of Giving' campaign as we celebrate 50 years in business.
For week one, we donated £500 to Once Upon A Smile, a Trafford-based children's bereavement charity that provides emotional and practical support. They also support children and families when a parent, guardian or sibling has died.
For the second week, we donated £250 towards the Trewan Sands Children's Trusts' Wilmslow half-marathon runner Kelly Fearn. Working closely with local authority disability units, special needs schools and various other charities, Trewan Sands provide holiday's, day trips and outward bound days to disabled and terminally ill children and their families.
Cash for Kids is Bauer Radio's network of local charities who respond to the needs of children in communities, striving to enable all children to fulfil their potential. Hit's Radio, part of of the Bauer portfolio, ran a Superhero Day in April and benefitted from a £1,000 donation from Morson.
Other organisations to benefit from our 50 Weeks of Giving include Racing Welfare, a charity that supports welfare within horse racing, and the Tour De Manc cycle ride which supports various charities across the region. Each organisation received a £1,000 donation.
Our 50 Weeks of Giving programme will be in addition to the work to raise money for the employee-chosen charities in 2019, Motor Neurone Disease Assosication 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.
Celebrations throughout the year have bought together Morson's sporting ambassadors; from horse racing, to ex-Manchester United players, to former world champion boxers Ricky Hatton and Anthony Crolla and Sale Sharks rugby club.
