COMMENT – A time for giving: Christmas 2012

This Christmas, as in previous years, we have made donations to our chosen charities.

We are supporting the UK charity Action MS.  Action MS maintains a highly successful fund-raising programme that supports research into multiple sclerosis, and an extensive range of care and support services to people and families living with MS. In addition, this year we have added The Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston to our list.

Both charities support research into serious, often incurable diseases – areas we have worked on extensively, and continue to do so.

Action MS was founded by a family member of our core team in the UK, and their family has had an active involvement in fundraising and volunteering for many years.

Also, we’re branching out and doing much more business in the US now. We thus felt it important to try to impact on the community over there too, not just take their business. Since a fair share of our work is in the oncology area, and is conducted by groupH associates in the Boston area, we are supporting the Dana Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.  Please take a look at our November 2012 post for our views and rationale on charitable giving, as part of our wider aspiration to create shared value.
