Murphy Charities

It’s for charity!

Our teams are passionate about helping good causes and positively engage in grassroots activities to benefit the communities in which we work. Whether it's donating household items to local refuges, upcycling materials so that they can be used in schools, or donating materials for community use, we like to help.

If you have a good cause in-mind, get in touch - our charity committee meets monthly and can give your proposal their consideration. Fundraising efforts are eligible to receive a donation of up to £1000, subject to the approval of the local charity committee.

We asked our employees to help us select our UK charity partners for 2016 and they selected the two they most wanted to support - voting for Macmillan Cancer Support and Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH). These two charities are eligible for match funding, so each time an employee raises money for them, Murphy matches their total.

Steve Hollingshead, chief executive officer at Murphy, said: “When you’re facing serious illness, it can be a terrible time, but Macmillan and GOSH are always there to offer people support when they most need it. It’s a pleasure to support these incredible charities and we’re looking forward to raising money for them over the coming year, so they can keep up the great work”.

About Great Ormond Street Hospital:
Great Ormond Street Hospital is one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals with the broadest range of dedicated, children’s healthcare specialists under one roof in London. The hospital’s pioneering research and treatments give hope to children from across the UK with the rarest, most complex and often life-threatening conditions.

Olivia Jary, deputy director of corporate partnerships at GOSH, said: “Thank you so much to everyone at Murphy for choosing to support Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity. We’re really looking forward to the year ahead and know that your support will make a difference to seriously ill children from across the UK.”

About Macmillan Cancer Support:
Macmillan Cancer Support helps improve the lives of people living with cancer, their family and friends by providing practical, medical and financial support.

Gemma Crabb from Macmillan’s fundraising team said: “With over two and a half million people living with cancer in the UK today, the demand for Macmillan services has never been higher. We want to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone, and that is why the support of partners such as Murphy is vital. We are really looking forward to working with Murphy over the following year.”
