HMG Paints Support Local Charities

HMG Paints Ltd are swapping their laboratory coats for running vests to take on the Great Manchester 10K Run on 19th May 2019 supporting 4 chosen charities selected by the employees at the family business.

HMG Paints launched the initiative in 2018 focusing on local charities, by supporting The Motor Neurone Disease Association, Forever Manchester, The Cleft Lip and Palate Association and Manchester Mind, and have set a target of £6,000 via their fundraising page,

“I have been fundraising for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) with my family and friends since my husband was diagnosed in 2017. The MNDA being one of HMG’s chosen charities has been a huge boost to us through an incredibly difficult time and it is touching to see so many of my colleagues come together to run the 10K, and raise vital funds for the MNDA as well as the 3 other fantastic charities. I can’t wait to see how much we can raise together as a team.” Said Alison Edmondson, Purchase Ledger Supervisor, HMG Paints. The Motor Neurone Disease Association is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving access to care, research and campaigning for Motor Neurone Disease, an uncommon fatal condition that affects the brain and nerves.

HMG will also be running for Forever Manchester who work with local communities to inspire and encourage projects that they want to see to make their neighbourhoods happier, healthier and safer places to be. They help local people to build communities from the inside out, and galvanise the true creative, entrepreneurial spirit for Greater Mancunians to emerge and shine. “Forever Manchester is delighted to be a chosen charity for HMG Paints.  It’s fantastic that a local company recognises the value of supporting local grassroot community activity that makes a difference on their doorstep, where they work and where their staff and customers live. We’re looking forward to working together.” Commented Jean Mills, Head of Business Development at Forever Manchester.

The Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) is the 3rd charity HMG will be supporting, they work to improve the lives of people born with a cleft palate and their families in the United Kingdom. “My nephew was born with a Cleft Palate in 2013 and has been in hospital regularly ever since. I never realised the struggles of being born with a Cleft Palate and how long the effects last through life until then. I have taken part in the 10K run for CLAPA a number of times but this time, with the large group of my colleagues and friends, I am really looking forward to running for my nephew and making him proud.” Anthony Kenyon, Production Operative, HMG Paints.

The final charity the company will be raising funds for is Manchester Mind. This local charity is a member of the national Mind network, and has been delivering support services since 1989. All local Minds are independent charities who raise their own funds. Manchester Mind provide support and information to over 5000 young people and adults across the city. In addition, they offer community and employer training to develop awareness and promote wellbeing.

“Supporting charities that were chosen by the people of HMG really brings everyone together and shines a spotlight on the family values that run through HMG. After our launch in 2018 we have been able to see exactly where the donations are going to go and just how much running the 10K and raising vital funds is going to help each charity nationwide and locally to HMG in Manchester.” Said Gracienne Ikin, Communications Manager, HMG Paints.

In November 2017, HMG Paints were the first company to win the Corporate Social Responsibility Award at the prestigious British Coatings Federation (BCF) Annual Awards evening for their 2-year partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support. HMG vow to continue supporting local community and charity projects utilising the company’s core business activities and staff fundraising events.
