LOROS Light up a Life Sponsorship

LOROS Hospice Light up a Life 2019

Each year more than 1,000 people of all ages come together to remember someone special who has passed away.

The annual memorial service, during the festive period, takes place in the Leicester hospice’s grounds, with access provided to their chapel.

In 2016 and 2017 Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd were humbled to be given the opportunity to sponsor the Light up a Life service.

LOROS Events Manager Laura Betts said: “We are so grateful to the team at Morningside for wanting to support our Light up a Life event once again.

“It’s fantastic to see a local organisation supporting a local charity and it’s only thanks to generous support from companies like Morningside that events like these are able to go ahead.”

Dr Nik Kotecha, Chief Executive of Morningside, added: “This is the second time we have sponsored Light up a Life and we are once again honoured to be doing so.

“Christmas can be such a difficult time when you’re missing that special someone but the Light up a Life service gives everyone an opportunity to come together and remember together.

“We’re extremely proud to support an event like this, it is clearly much-loved by the community and it’s a lovely event to be associated with.”

Dr Kotecha also supports LOROS by sitting on the charity’s Board.

UK East African Health Summit

Morningside Pharmaceuticals supplies global aid agencies with quality medicine.

The 4th East African Health Summit took place in London and looked for ways to support the UK and East African governments with responding to current and future health issues, as well as achieving greater investment in African healthcare systems.

The summit was supported by the Uganda UK Health Alliance, British Medical Association (BMA), British Medical Journal (BMJ), NHS Health Education England, and headline sponsors Morningside Pharmaceuticals.

Delegations from the UK and African governments, NHS leaders, policy makers and representatives from African ministries of health came together with international healthcare experts, investors, solution providers and business leaders.

One success story from the past year saw Everton Football Club send a representative to attend the UK East Africa Health Improvement Summit in Uganda, as well as pledging the Club’s charitable support for 5 years to the West Nile refugee operation in East Africa.

Part of the summit looked to private sector businesses to provide innovative solutions and investment in African healthcare systems.

The Department for International Trade (DIT) also led a break-out session in the House of Lords, chaired by Lord Dolar Popat the UK Trade Envoy to Rwanda and Uganda, where business leaders looked at how promoting private sector engagement and UK exports can strengthen bilateral trade across the East African markets.

Another healthcare priority area for the summit was to explore how governments are supporting major health issues, particularly Malaria.

The session was hosted by Jeremy Lefroy MP, Chair of All-Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases, which aimed to raise awareness of malaria and neglected tropical diseases amongst parliamentarians; and to encourage the UK Government to provide political will, leadership and sustainable funding for the necessary prevention and treatment of these diseases.

The summit also looked for fresh ways to galvanise investment in Research and Development including malaria vaccines and treatment drugs, new generations of insecticides and genetic modifications, which would be designed to eliminate malaria carrying mosquitoes or prevent transmission.

 

Steps Conductive Education Centre

Steps Conductive Education Centre

The Steps Conductive Education Centre provides specialist nursery services to children with motor disorders and support for their families.

The service, which is based in Shepshed, in Leicestershire, works tirelessly to ensure the children they support lead fuller, more active, lives.

Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd was proud to be able to sponsor a charity event at Leicester City Football Club’s King Power Stadium, which raised thousands of pounds for this amazing cause.

On the night, which was called ‘A Question of Brains’, our Chief Executive Dr Nik Kotecha OBE joined the charity’s patron Rosemary Conley CBE to help support the fundraising.

Age UK Mini-Bus Sponsorship

Morningside Pharmaceuticals supports Age UK.

About 3.6 million older people in the UK live alone, of which 2 million are aged over 75.

Loneliness is a huge issue in the UK, particularly as 1.9 million older people often feel ignored or invisible.

This is why Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd sponsors an Age UK LeicesterShire & Rutland mini bus. The bus was officially launched in 2017 and is now helping to rescue older people from loneliness by providing essential transport for the charity’s befriending service.

At the launch Morningside’s Chief Executive Dr Nik Kotecha, said: “We wanted to help in some way to reach out to those older people who have found themselves incredibly isolated. This mini-bus will be a life-line for many local older people throughout the Charnwood area and beyond, and we are proud to help the work that Age UK LeicesterShire & Rutland does in the community.”

The Morningside Mini-Bus is fully wheelchair accessible and is now in-use every Monday to Friday from 8:30am to 5pm, as well as providing weekend day trips, transport to community activities and day care centres including the very successful Men in Sheds project in Loughborough.

Executive Director of Age UK LeicesterShire & Rutland, Tony Donovan, added: “We are incredibly grateful for the support that Morningside Pharmaceuticals have given us and this transport will provide an essential service for many years to come that will help significantly towards our important work in tackling loneliness and isolation”.

Inter-Care Stock Control System Sponsorship

Morningside Pharmaceuticals supports charity Intercare.

Since 1974 aid charity Inter Care has used a stock-control system to track the essential supplies it sends to Africa.

As the years have gone by the old system had become dated and inefficient, as modern advancements in technology have created digital options for stock control.

In 2017 Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd funded a brand-new online stock control system for the Syston based charity. The new system helps the charity track the recycled surplus quality medicines and healthcare goods it sends to rural health units in some of the poorest parts of Africa.

The benefits of this system to Inter Care and the communities they support are huge, as it enables the charity to track the aid it sends to Africa from the point it enters the warehouse, right through to delivery to each health unit.

As a charity which places recycling at the core of its work, the new system also enables Inter Care to maximise its own in-house recycling by replacing paper record keeping with digital records. Less paper work also means more space to store donated medical aid and less time spent looking through files, which are now accessible at the click of a mouse.

During the launch, Diane Hardy, Inter Care’s General Manager, said: “Thanks to Morningside, Inter Care now has a highly professional and efficient stock control system, putting us at the top of our game for a charity of our size.

“Morningside’s mission is to make quality healthcare an affordable and accessible reality throughout the world, which echoes that of Inter Care. This makes them the perfect partner for our charity and we are hugely grateful and honoured to receive their support.”

Dr Nik Kotecha OBE, Chief Executive at Morningside Pharmaceuticals, added: “By supporting Inter Care with this new IT system, we are helping them to provide life-saving medicines to deprived countries, which need it the most, in-line with National Quality Standards.

“Inter Care do great work in developing countries and Morningside are delighted that we are able to help enhance Inter Care’s Quality Management System.”

CLIC Sargent Sponsorship

Morningside Pharmaceuticals supports the CLIC Sargents Billy's House

Every day 11 more children and young people in the UK will receive the devastating news that they have cancer.

From diagnosis, charity CLIC Sargent’s specialist care teams step in, ready to help, support and guide. They provide a specialist package of support tailored to each young cancer patient and family.

One amazing service the charity provides is free accommodation, for the families of children who have cancer to stay in, while their youngsters are treated.

In Nottingham, a six bedroom large detached property was founded close to the city’s Queen’s Medical Centre, by cancer survivor Billy Greenall.

Due to the incredible work of Billy’s parents and co-chairs of Billy’s Appeal, CLIC Sargent were able to raise more than £2million to develop and open this home in 2009.

Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd were proud to help too and sponsored the house in 2016, to enable families to be able to stay in the accommodation for six weeks, while their youngster received Oncology care.

CLIC Sargent was formed in 2005 after a successful merger between CLIC and Sargent Cancer Care for Children.

Today, the charity fights tirelessly for children and young people with cancer, often when they feel they can’t. They do this individually, locally and nationally, so that they can focus on the important things, like getting well.

And if the worst happens, they work with bereaved families to get them support and to help them cope with their emotional pain.

Healing Little Hearts Support

Morningside Pharmaceuticals supports the Healing Little Hearts charity

Healing Little Hearts supports the treatment of children living in some of the poorest countries in the world.

 

Morningside Pharmaceuticals Ltd is pleased to support the charity, which was founded in 2007 by children’s Consultant Intensivist at Leicester’s Hospitals, Dr Sanjiv Nichani, who wanted to provide life-saving help for those without the resources to pay for healthcare. 

 

The list of countries where children have benefitted from the expert volunteers including surgeons, anaesthetists, intensivists and specialised children’s nurses includes: India, Tanzania, Kenya, Malaysia, Mauritius and now Romania.

 

Each team of specialist medics stay for one week and operate on between 10 to 12 children per trip. The charity also trains junior doctors and nurses in children’s heart care with the eventual aim of helping the centres to become more self-sustaining.

 

Since the beginning, Healing Little Hearts has successfully treated over 1,120 babies, children and young people, giving them a completely new life which would not have happened due to the severe shortage of specialists and hospitals able to treat children born with heart defects.
