Charity of the year
We are currently partnered with Stonegate, the UK’s largest pub chain as their charity of the year partner. Together we are hoping to raise £500,000. Since May 2022, we have seen some incredible fundraising from Stonegate colleagues such as challenge events, sky dives, car washes, art sales, cycling and walking challenges, canoe challenges, raffles and auctions.
The MND Association was selected to be Toyota's national charity partner through a staff-driven selection process. Toyota are hoping to raise £250k to benefit our support grant programme. The fundraising we have seen so far includes 3 peaks challenge, 5-a-side football matches, raffles, auctions and Toyota's own honey sales!
Berry Bros. & Rudd
Following a colleague's MND diagnosis, Berry Bros & Rudd selected Motor Neurone Disease Association as it’s charity partner for the next three years. Berry Bros & Rudd have raised funds via virtual mind reading, staff lunch donations and have put together a special bottling of Berry’s Own Selection Macduff 2002 Whisky as well as other fundraising activities to benefit the Association.
In 2017, we were chosen as the Credit Suisse UK Charity of The Year partner. The one-year partnership was hoping to raise £600,000 through the “No Time To Wait” campaign to fund three key areas of our work. Care Centres, Voice Banking and Project MinE. The partnership saw some amazing and varied fundraising activities and finished the year by smashing the original target and raised a fantastic £763,000.
In 2018, we began our ongoing multi-year partnership with Hayes Davidson and the Alan Davidson Foundation. Each year staff from Hayes Davidson as well as top architects and designers from other city firms compete in a 5K race in London’s Hyde Park. In honour of their founder Alan Davidson they raise awareness and funds for the MND Association. Since the challenge began, HD5K has raised an amazing £315,000!
