Morgan has a long and proud history of supporting both local and national charities. Each year we choose to support a different charity. For 2017/18 we have chosen to support The British Heart Foundation in their fight against cardio vascular disease.
CVD kills more than one in four people in the UK, stealing them away from families and loved ones. The funds raised by Morgan Motor Company will help support the BHF’s life saving research which could lead to better treatments for those living with CVD.
Morgan staff will be taking part in a variety of fundraising activities including getting behind BHF fundraising campaigns such as ‘Wear It. Beat it.’ on Friday 9th June and the autumn stock donation campaign ‘Bag it. Beat it.’ for their 750+ shops. In addition Morgan will be hosting a large annual event “Run For The Hills” that will have a number of fundraising opportunities, including an auction at the Gala Dinner. As well as ongoing fundraising initiatives, both internally and externally, Morgan and BHF are looking to raise awareness and training throughout the 200 members of Morgan workforce. Fundraising has already started and you can donate today!
