With over 50 pubs and bars in Scotland, including Slug and Lettuce, Popworld and Walkabout, Stonegate’s teams will be coming up with imaginative and creative ways of raising money for the charities, as well as encouraging customers across England, Wales and Scotland to get involved.
This exciting new partnership runs across the whole Stonegate estate, including its pubs, bars, venues and head office support teams. The money raised will help us continue to provide life-changing support to people living with MND, and their family, friends and carer, as well as fund the research which is taking us closer to finding a cure.
Simon Longbottom, CEO of Stonegate Group, said: “Our pubs, bars and venues all play a huge part in the communities they operate in, and are brilliant at bringing individuals together for great causes. I am excited to see how creative our teams get in the planning of all the various fundraising initiatives during this partnership. There are many synergies between our company and MND Association, especially its regionality. We are delighted that our teams in Scotland will be working directly with MND Scotland, just as in England and Wales, which means they are able to make further direct impact in their local communities.
“The work and support that the MND Association and MND Scotland provide is incredible and we are privileged to be able to help them and do our part in raising awareness of this cause.”
We are here to improve access to care and provide information and support for people living with or affected by MND in Scotland, while the MND Association do the same in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Both charities fund and promote research that leads to new understanding and treatments and brings a cure closer. We campaign and raise awareness so the needs of people with MND across the UK are recognised and addressed by wider society. People with MND, their families and carers are at the heart of everything we do.
Rachel Maitland, Chief Executive of MND Scotland, said: “We are thrilled to be working with Stonegate Group and our friends at the MND Association. MND Scotland is only able to provide life-changing support to people living with MND right now, and fund ground-breaking research to discover meaningful treatments and a cure, because of incredible supporters like Stonegate Group. Your support will make a real difference to people in Scotland, who are currently affected by this heart-breaking disease, and will drive forward our search for a cure. Together, we will beat MND.”
