The leading UK charity focusing on muscular dystrophy and related neuro-muscular conditions, has a Corporate Partnerships team based in their head office in London who work alongside Regional Development Managers to help build mutually beneficial partnerships. They work with many types of business from small local start ups to multinational corporations.
Roger Brosch, CEO at Foster Denovo (a long-term partner of Muscular Dystrophy UK) had this to say: “I am proud of the association that Foster Denovo has with Muscular Dystrophy UK. Our partners and staff are fully committed to a long-term partnership in the hope of making a real difference to a team that works so tirelessly to help all those affected. I know from personal experience that the work of the charity deserves our full support and our fundraising efforts have also been an amazing vehicle to build staff morale and enthusiasm. I’m looking forward to working with them for many more years to come.”
Nick Hearne, Corporate Partnerships Manager at Muscular Dystrophy UK says: “Corporate partnerships are clearly beneficial to us – they raise thousands of pounds a year to help people with muscle-wasting conditions. But our partners also tell us that these partnerships are equally beneficial to them offering their staff the opportunity to work together for a common cause, increasing morale, encouraging creativity, improving communications and promoting team-building. It also shows their customers and business partners that the company cares, projecting a positive corporate image.”
A great example of a partnership event is the Race Night that Rhodes Event Management held recently, with Muscular Dystrophy UK and Auzair’s Fast Track Research Fund. Auzair’s Fund has been set up by a family who are affected by Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and as £44 funds an hour of research the amazing £1,800 raised at this event will make a big difference. You could be part of that!
