Morson's 50 Weeks of Giving continues throughout September
Weekly donations celebrate 50 years in business for the Morson Group
Morson has donated to five local charities through the month of September. Totalling £2,650, the donations are part of the '50 Weeks of Giving' campaign being run by the business throughout 2019 to celebrate 50 years in business.
Maintaining the business' commitment to helping ex-forces charities and veterans, the first donation of £250 was for SSAFA, an armed forces charity. Paul Quick, a Morson employee based at Wattisham took part in a bike ride to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
A donation of £1,000 was made to the Clatterbridge Cancer Charity based in Birkenhead via a skydive by Robert Rose, operations director of Morson client Encirc. Last year, work began on building Liverpool's first cancer hospital in the heard of the city backed by their £15m appeal.
One of Morson's longest serving charity partners is the Seashell Trust, and head of fundraising Dominic Tinner has been taking part in a Swiss Alp Cycle Challenge - four days of gruelling cycling between Geneva and Zurich across 310 miles with 25,000ft of climbing. Morson donated £200 to the cause and proceeds will go to the Seashell Trust to help provide the necessary funds for adapted bikes and a host of specialist equipment.
Katie's Ski Tracks is a charity that takes disadvantaged children with life-threatening or life-limiting medical conditions. They've been the beneficiaries of a donation of £1,000 towards their next trip.
A final donation rounded out the month, with £200 being donated to CLIC Sargent, a charity for young lives vs cancer. The donation was made through our connection with the local branch of Morrisons in Eccles.
