Each year, our employees vote to select two charitable organisations to raise vital funds. The nomination of a charity often stems from the personal experience of an employee, which we are proud to support.
This year, the spotlight is on Dementia UK and Crohn’s & Colitis UK – two organisations dedicated to making a significant difference in the lives of those affected by dementia and inflammatory bowel diseases.
With a mission to provide much-needed support to families impacted by dementia, Dementia UK plays a crucial role in improving care and services for those facing the challenges of this debilitating condition. The funds raised by Morson Group will contribute to the training and deployment of specialist dementia nurses, ensuring that families receive the expert care and assistance they need during these difficult times.
Crohn’s and Colitis UK
Inflammatory bowel diseases affect an estimated 500,000 people in the UK, causing physical and emotional challenges for those living with them. Morson Group’s commitment to raising funds for Crohn’s and Colitis UK will help provide high-quality information and support services through helplines and advocate for improved health services for those in need. The funds raised will also contribute to vital research to develop new treatments for Crohn’s and Colitis. By supporting Crohn’s and Colitis UK, we are proud to be actively participating in the journey towards better health outcomes for individuals affected by these conditions.
Morson Group’s commitment to social responsibility shines through in its 2024 fundraising initiative. Formed in 2007, our charity committee continues to lead our fundraising efforts as we pledge each year’s support to multiple worthy causes. In the last 10 years, we’ve raised over £2 million for worthy causes throughout the UK, such as Brain Tumour Research, British Heart Foundation, Salford University, the Seashell Trust, Destination Florida, Alzheimer’s Society and many more.
Ged Mason, CEO of the Morson Group, commented:
“At Morson Group, care is not just a word; it’s a core value that guides our actions. As we embark on our 2024 fundraising journey, Morson Group is honoured to stand alongside our dedicated employees in supporting two remarkable organisations: Dementia UK and Crohn’s & Colitis UK.
“These charities, symbolise our commitment to making a meaningful impact on the lives of those facing the challenges of dementia and inflammatory bowel diseases. We wish all our colleagues good luck on their fundraising endeavours, remembering that every £1 raised by them, is matched by Morson.”
By supporting Dementia UK and Crohn’s & Colitis UK, the company is not only making financial contributions but also raising awareness about these important causes. It’s a testament to the power of positive change that can be achieved when a community comes together for a common cause. Our business is defined not by what we gain but by what we give back.
