A Manchester firm has raised £8,300 for the blood cancer charity Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
The Morson Group, a leading technical recruitment company whose head office is in Eccles, have been fundraising hard during the one-year charity partnership.
Colleagues at the company took on a number of events over the year. As well as smaller fundraising activities such as raffles, a team of 32 colleagues ran in the 2009 BUPA Great Manchester Run. A celebrity football match was also arranged and staff raised sponsorship by taking part in the Manchester to Blackpool bike ride.
Paul Moogan, Business Development Director at Morson, said: “The Morson Charity Committee were delighted to support Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research during 2009. There were several of our colleagues who have family or friends who have been affected by blood cancers so the decision to support them was a very poignant one.
"We also found Leukaemia & Lymphoma are a really proactive and supportive team to work with which made for a very positive experience. Our thanks go to our many willing volunteers! We were delighted to raise over £8,000 for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, which we know they will put to fantastic use.”
Kate White, Director of Fundraising at Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, says: “It’s fantastic that so many colleagues from Morson got involved and raised such a great amount of money. The money will make a real difference to the lives of people touched by leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma.”
