Midwich rides into action with new charity partnership
UK distributor Midwich has kicked off a two-year partnership with local charity Nelson’s Journey by raising £500 (approximately €600) with a sponsored exercise bike ride.
The agreement follows on from a partnership that saw Midwich staff raise more than £27,000 for the Big C charity in 2015-16.
Neslon’s Journey supports children and young people in Norfolk, UK who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life.
Simon Wright, chief executive of the charity, said: “We’ve seen growing demand for our services across the county, including south Norfolk, and Midwich will play an important part in helping us to respond to the growing needs of the community.”
Carla Shipp, group head of HR at Midwich, added: “We are delighted to partner with Nelson’s Journey as our chosen charity over the next two years. Staff get to choose which charity they wish to support and keeping our focus local is important to all of us here at Midwich. It means some of the smaller, not so well known charities get to benefit from donations on a larger scale.”
