• Midwich begins charity partnership with Nelson’s Journey

        • Midwich has announced it will be supporting Norfolk charity, Nelson’s Journey for the next two years. This announcement follows the recent news that Midwich staff raised over £27,000 on behalf of the Big C charity in 2015-16.

          The 250+ staff located at Midwich head office in Vinces Road, Diss launched the new partnership on 7th April by raising over £500 for Nelson’s Journey. Midwich staff jumped on exercise bikes throughout the day with other staff donating money to keep colleagues peddling for longer, for a maximum of 30 minutes. Staff covered over 300 miles on the day and raffle tickets for a Midwich Easter hamper was also on sale with the winner being announced this week.

          Simon Wright, Chief Executive of Nelson’s Journey said, “with their brilliant effort on the exercise bikes, staff at Midwich have been wheelie quick to get into action for Norfolk’s bereaved children. Nelson’s Journey is delighted that Midwich has chosen to support us for the next two years. Their enthusiastic team have a great track record in helping local causes. We’ve seen growing demand for our services across the county, including south Norfolk, and Midwich will play an important part in helping us to respond to the growing needs of the community.”

          Nelson’s Journey continues to provide support to children and young people, living in Norfolk, who have experienced the death of a significant person in their life, helping them to move forward positively with their lives.  Already this year the charity has received over 300 referrals for children and young people, if pace continues they are set to work with over 1000 children this year.  They supported over 780 during 2016. 

          Carla Shipp, Group Head of HR at Midwich added, “we are delighted to partner with Nelson’s Journey as our chosen charity over the next two years.  Staff get to choose which charity they wish to support and keeping our focus local is important to all of us here at Midwich. It means some of the smaller, not so well known charities get to benefit from donations on a larger scale. We really hope that with the values we aim to raise from the support of our staff, their families and friends and of course and the wider community, that we can make a real difference to some of the children and young adults that have suffered the loss of a significant person in their lives.”
