In September we organised a week long Magic Miles event to raise money for our chosen charity, Make-A-Wish UK – an amazing organisation that helps to grant wishes to children with life threatening conditions.
Morton Michel’s Magic Miles, ‘Bring Your Teddy To The Races’, took place from 1st -8th September. All childcarers and their charges were encouraged to run, jog, skip, hop or walk a mile with their favourite teddy bear to raise money for Make-A-Wish.
The event was a great success with many children getting out in the garden or heading to their local park to complete their ‘magic’ mile. Morton Michel sent out fundraising packs to all those taking part which consisted of colouring pencils, balloons, stickers and other goodies to support their fundraising efforts!
The week-long initiative was launched with a company event on Friday 1st September with all Morton Michel staff finishing their mile. Even Morton (in blue) and Michel (in pink), the company bear mascots, made an appearance! Staff also participated in a raffle with great prizes generously donated by local businesses. A total of almost £200 was raised for a fantastic charity.
