Through its staff-run charity committee, the company regularly raises funds for a wide variety of organisations. The new partnership with MSRRF follows on from a hugely successful two years with Gosforth-based children’s charity Smile for Life, for whom UNW raised over £20,000 through a sponsored walk, cycling challenge and various activities within its Citygate office.
Andrew Wilson, UNW Managing Partner, said: “We’re delighted that MS Research and Relief Fund has been chosen by colleagues as UNW’s new charity of the year in 2018. The work the charity does for people affected by MS in the North East, and their families, is vital to make their lives just that little bit easier."

NC Insurance, based in Low Fell, Gateshead, are a leading independent insurance broker, providing high-quality insurance products and risk-management advice.
They became an official partner of MSRRF in mid-2017 and have been highly active in their support of the charity since. The staff have organised office fundraising days throughout the year as well as entered into MSRRF's events, such as the Annual Golf Day and Great North Run.
Mark Burdett, Sales and Marketing Director at NC Insurance, gave an insight as to why he was keen for the company to support MS Research and Relief Fund:
“My dad had MS and unfortunately passed away when he was just 39 years old so on a personal level, being able to help MSRRF means a great deal to me.
"I’ve been to their Benmar House centre on a few occasions in recent months and seeing the excellent work they do makes me want to promote their services and raise as much awareness & money for MSRRF as possible. I would urge anyone who knows someone with MS or is interested in finding out more about this great charity to get in touch."

The team is run by Steve Kinghorn and his wife Ruth, who are also aided by their seven year old daughter Georgina - and last year, SGR Racing finished fourth in the Superstock 600 Championship.
Upon launching the partnership between MSRRF and SGR, Steve said that he had wanted to reach out to the charity after first hearing about us at the Morpeth Christmas Tree Festival, noting that after having a family member affected by the condition and a close friend recently diagnosed, he wanted to support the charity however he could. Steve has already announced that the MS Research and Relief Fund logo will appear on SGR Racing's motorbikes for the upcoming British Championship season.
