World Leading Firm Backs Local Charity

One of the world’s leading industrial supply firms has named Stourbridge based Mary Stevens Hospice as their charity of the year for 2018.

Staff at the Wednesbury branch of MSC are busy planning fundraising challenges, awareness days, and employee volunteering visits, while also gearing up to support the hospice’s Christmas Treecycle event.

MSC have already begun their fundraising efforts for the Hagley Road charity and handed over a cheque for more than £1,000 last week.

Laura Millard, the corporate engagement officer at Mary Stevens Hospice, said: “The reality is that our care simply isn’t possible without the support of our business community, and to have a company as respected and influential as MSC committing to helping local families really is just the most amazing way to start 2018.

“They’ve done fantastically well to raise more than £1,000 in such a short space of time… and both the money and awareness they’re helping to raise will make the most incredible difference to families here at the hospice.”

Meanwhile, Penny Davies, MSC’s human resources director, said that “having Mary Stevens Hospice as our charity of the year is a great pleasure and honour for MSC.

“As a business, we strive to transform how our customer’s businesses operate through being personally invested and offering support wherever possible.

“That is why working in partnership with Mary Stevens Hospice resonates so much for the associates of MSC, as we see in them their drive and commitment to helping patients and families.

“MSC will do anything we can to raise awareness and funds for such an important and instrumental support service in our society.”
