Group Sponsors

Manchester Airports Group (MAG)

MAGMedcare is the first group-wide charity that MAG has supported. As well as financial support, MAG have given time for employees with key skills to help transform lives of children. From 2011-2014 MAG raised funds to enable the refurbishment and extension of the Wellspring Children’s Medical Centre, at a cost of £200,000. This work, which was completed in 2014, is providing opportunities for Medcare to treat thousands more children each year and to develop specialties to assist those children suffering from malaria, HIV/AIDS and those with physical disabilities and cerebral palsy.

Charlie Cornish, MAG’s Chief Executive, said, “I am confident that our work will make a huge difference to people who need help.”

MAG have provided funds to assist with sustainability of the enlarged medical centre for a 3 year period. In February 2015 a team of 9 MAG Graduates  travelled to Uganda with Medcare. The aims of this visit were to fact find regarding the work of Medcare and  observe the needs of disabled children living in poverty in the villages, particularly those suffering from cerebral palsy. They also painted 2 new homes which had been built by Medcare for needy children and their families, and ran 2 craft and sports days, one for children with cerebral palsy and the other for children suffering from AIDS. The laughter and happiness in the faces of these children was so rewarding to see.  Throughout 2015/2016 the MAG graduates are organizing a number of fund raising events , raising funds which will be shared by Medcare the present MAG designated charity, Clic Sargent. The money raised for Medcare will aid us in  the build of the new orphanage for disabled children. Along with an Airbus team and other supporters the target for this project is £60,000 to be raised by Christmas 2016.
