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, Great North Run and upcoming Coast to Coast.
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."
SGR Racing are a family-owned motorcycle racing team based in Morpeth, Northumberland, competing at British Championship Level. 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 and that some of his team members will also be participating in the upcoming Coast to Coast.
