We’re delighted to share that our charity partner in the UK this year is the MND Association.
The entire UK team is given the opportunity to nominate and then vote on a corporate charity partner, and an overwhelming majority of #TeamEames backed the charity.
The MND Association focuses on improving access to care, research and campaigning for those people living with or affected by motor neurone disease (MND).
MND affects up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. It is life-shortening, and there is no cure.
In recent years, sports stars like Doddie Weir, Rob Burrow and Stephen Darby bravely shared their MND diagnosis, which has helped raise public awareness of a disease that many knew not much about. MND has also impacted a member of our team who recently lost her father to this cruel disease. We’re delighted as a business to be able to support another charity this year that has a personal connection to a very valued member of #TeamEames.
Driving the fundraising support is a volunteer group of employees who have pulled together a series of events to raise money and awareness throughout the year.
We are looking forward to contributing to the efforts for greater awareness, access to care and research for the MND community in the UK.
