UNW in the community
Based in the city centre of Newcastle, UNW is at the very heart of the community and aims to contribute towards it in a wide variety of ways; To benefit not only the organisations themselves, but also internally for the personal development of our staff.
In addition to colleagues being actively encouraged to partake in a wide variety of fundraising and voluntary opportunities close to their heart, we also have a nominated charity of the year for which funds are raised through activities, challenges and events.
Every twelve months, the UNW Committee and Charity Group consult staff to nominate and vote for a small, local independent charity to ensure any money generated delivers maximum social impact. Previous beneficiaries include Charlie Bear for Cancer Appeal, Caring Hands and Newcastle Women’s Aid.
Coming off the back of a hugely successful two-year collaboration with Gosforth children’s charity Smile For Life, our chosen charity of the year for 2018/19 is MS Research and Relief Fund (MSRRF).
Primarily based in Morpeth but with nine outreach centres across throughout the North East, MSRRF supports those affected with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and their family and friends through free classes and therapies, as well as grants providing access to specific equipment to limit the impact the condition has on their lives.
Plans are in place for UNW to raise money for MSRRF by staff partaking in a 27-mile sponsored castle walk from Warkworth to Bamburgh in October, with more to be announced in the coming months.
