17th October 2018 Paul Andrews
HMG Paints Ltd have announced four chosen charities that they will be supporting for the next two years, nominated and selected by the employees at the Manchester based Headquarters.
Focusing on local charities, HMG Paints launched the initiative with a company Bake Off, revealing that they will be supporting Forever Manchester, The Motor Neurone Disease Association, The Cleft Lip and Palate Association and Manchester Mind.
Forever Manchester 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.
HMG will also be supporting The Motor Neurone Disease Association which is the only national charity in England, Wales and Northern Ireland focused on improving access to care, research and campaigning for Motor Neurone Disease. 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.
The final charity chosen by the employees of HMG Paints to support over the next 12-24 months is Manchester Mind. Mind have been delivering services in the city since 1989 (previously as HARP). Despite being part of the Mind Charity, they remain an independent charity, governed by their own trustees. Manchester Mind deliver a wide range of services to support people’s mental health and last year over 5,000 people received support, information and/or training.
