Charitable Support

Each year, our Board of Shareholders nominate charities for our team to support.

Supporting local charities

Last year, we raised over £17,000 for Alex's Wish through a series of fundraising activities involving our staff, partners and affiliates.

This year, we have selected two charities to support: Motor Neurone Disease Association and Teenage Cancer Trust, Nottingham.

Motor Neurone Disease (MND) Association

The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving care, research and campaigning. They have over 9,000 members forming a powerful network that provides information and support for people with MND, their families and carers. They fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings us closer to a cure. They campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND are recognised and addressed by wider society.

MND is a fatal, rapidly progressing neurological condition affecting up to 5,000 adults in the UK at any one time. The disease causes messages from nerves (motor neurones) in the brain and spinal cord that control movement to gradually stop reaching the muscles, leading them to weaken, stiffen and waste.

Teenage Cancer Trust, Nottingham

Teenage Cancer Trust is dedicated to making sure every young person facing cancer gets specialised nursing care and support, which puts them in the best possible place, physically, mentally and emotionally, for their cancer treatment and beyond.

Their 28 specialist units in hospitals across the UK are staffed by specialist nurses and other professionals, who all know how to treat young people as an individual first and a cancer patient second. They also support young people in other hospitals and in their own homes.

More than 2,000 young people aged 13-24 are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every year.

Even with family and health professionals around them, young people facing cancer may find themselves feeling isolated, scared and alone.

Alex’s Wish are thrilled and delighted to be SCAPE's chosen charity for 2019. All money raised will be invested in potentially life-saving medical research to help bring about new and effective treatments for all boys living with Duchenne.

How we are supporting the charities

Throughout the year we will raise funds through a variety of charity events, including the SCAPE Golf Day in June and the Charity Quiz in October, alongside other events to generate vital funds that will help the charities continue their fantastic work supporting even more people.
