UNW is a leading independent firm of chartered accountants based in Newcastle that delivers a wide range of business advisory services to its clients.
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."

In December 2018, The Office Pub in Morpeth named MS Research and Relief Fund as its Charity of the Year for 2019.
Staff and customers at the pub have come together to raise funds for MSRRF, via counter-top donation boxes, events and competitions hosted by the pub (including a Christmas Jumper Competition for dogs!) and engaging with MSRRF fundraising events. In June 2019, the Office entered five teams into the MSRRF Open Golf Day at Arcot Hall, Cramlington.
It has been great to meet the staff and friends of the Office and we look forward to continuing this relationship going forwards.

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."
