Twelve days of giving
Christmas has come early for twelve charities who are set to receive a festive windfall.
The firm has distributed £10,000 across the dozen charities who had been nominated by staff members earlier in the year.
The organisations, who will each benefit from a donation of more than £800, include Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland; Ovacom which provides support to people with ovarian cancer; Team Leo, which undertakes research into neonatal death and childbirth; Midlothian News & Views, a talking newspaper for the blind; The Yard which supports children and young adults with disabilities; Hamilton Churches Drop in Centre which provides hot meals; Complementary Therapy Service providing therapies to people receiving hospital treatment; PSP Association which supports people with progressive supranuclear palsy; Headway which helps people after brain injury; 3D Drumchapel which supports underprivileged children; Transverse Myelitis Society supporting people with the spinal cord disorder; and Asbestos Action Tayside, assisting people diagnosed with asbestos related diseases.
Peter Duff, Managing Partner, Morisons, said, “We were keen to support a wide spread of smaller, local based charities where possible, rather than some of the larger, more familiar organisations. Each one has some connection to a colleague within the firm and we look forward to learning how each of the charities will put the money to good use.”
The money was raised in a variety of ways throughout the year from dress down days and bake sales to sports challenges.< Back
