Corporate Support

Our business community is invaluable and we are grateful to all the businesses that help us raise thousands of pounds every year or provide volunteers for events or to complete tasks at Benmar House, so we can continue to provide support to people with MS.

We are proud of the relationships we have with our partners, whether they are small local businesses or large multi-nationals and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to work together with our community.

What is a business partnership?

A genuine and long-lasting relationship, between a charity and a business.

A mutually beneficial relationship that can provide your business with positive PR opportunities, brand awareness, whilst fulfilling your corporate responsibility.

A great way to support a cause close to many people’s hearts and an opportunity for team-building, boosting staff morale whilst having fun!


What can you do?

There are lots of ways you can get involved with MS Research and Relief Fund. Take a look through our previous corporate activities for inspiration.

Adopt MSRRF as your company Charity

Nominate MSRRF as your charity and motivate and inspire your employees, customers and suppliers to raise as much money as they can for the Charity and have fun in the process.

Whether it’s through fundraising, volunteering, taking part in events or corporate sponsorship- we will provide you with all of the ideas and tools that you need to make sure you’re successful in your fundraising activities.

For more information, please contact us.

Corporate sponsorship

By sponsoring an event you can help us raise vital funds towards our annual running costs and boost your profile at the same time. You can sponsor any one of our annual events from golf days to themed fun runs!

Not only will sponsoring one of our key events helps us to minimise our costs, it will provide you with brand awareness in the wider community.

Our events raise thousands each year and can have over 100 local attendees. Your branding could be included in event literature (leaflets, banners, posters and much more!) and social media advertising.

For more information, please contact us.

Payroll Giving – Give as you earn

You can help support MSRRF by making a regular contribution through your payroll. Not only is it a simple way to support us, but it's also the most tax effective.

Your donation is tax free because it’s taken directly from your salary, which means the cost to you is less than the amount you pledge.

Payroll Giving is a scheme that allows people paid through PAYE to make donations to any UK registered charity - tax free.

How does it work? You give a fixed amount from your salary each month. For example, if you donate £10, only £8.00 comes out of your salary and the Inland Revenue pays the rest.

For more information, please contact us.

Business Volunteering

We're always looking for offers from people to volunteer with us. Many businesses involve volunteering schemes where employees can offer their services for a couple of days per year. Here's a couple of examples we've had recently:

Bazaar Group

MSRRF are starting a new volunteering relationship with Bazaar Group, as their staff are offered 2 volunteering days per year. Each month MSRRF let Bazaar Group know of any up and coming volunteering opportunities which are then shared with Bazaar Group staff to see if anyone would like to use one of their volunteering days to help MSRRF.

Bazaar Group staff volunteered at our 6th annual Charity Golf Day and made a huge contribution to the success and fun of the day!!

Yorkshire Bank

Three people from Yorkshire Bank came to Benmar House to paint the fences in our garden. What may seem like a simple activity was something that had been overlooked and we were grateful for them to pitch in.

Virgin Money

We were delighted to be joined by three members of staff from Virgin Money's Morpeth branch at the Great North Run in 2019.


Before the Covid-19 pandemic we had started a new outreach facility at the Hilton Gateshead where Believe2Achieve work with MSRRF and the Hilton to provide massage therapies. Believe2Achieve kindly volunteering their time and resources, the Hilton also waivered car parking charges for those accessing this outreach service.
