Morgan Hunt Supports Cabrini Event

Morgan Hunt Supports Cabrini Event

Cabrini Children’s Society, a voluntary organisation that provides a range of services for children, young people and families – and client of Morgan Hunt, the award-winning recruitment agency - held their annual adoption and fostering picnic on Sunday 25 June 2012. The event was attended by children who have been adopted, along with their families, and provided an opportunity for them to come together to meet one another and share their experiences.

Morgan Hunt teamed up with the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust, the charity founded by Dame Kelly to improve the lives of young people through sport, to arrange for Adam Whitehead, former Olympic swimmer and European and Commonwealth Champion, to attend this year’s & lsquo;Olympic’ themed Cabrini event. Jane Porter, Manager, Marketing and Fundraising, facilitated the collaboration between the two charities and attended the event with Adam on behalf of Morgan Hunt.

Over the course of the day Adam led various activities and games, gave the children tips on their swimming technique, let the children hold his European Championship Gold medal, and spent the day getting to know the children and answering their questions.

The children had a great day and really enjoyed the event. Many of these children grew up without a role model so to have Adam there as a role model figure engaging with the children was an invaluable experience for them.

Amanda Tucker, Head of Fundraising, Marketing and Business Development at Cabrini, said “It was such a pleasure to welcome Adam to one of our parenting picnics, the children were so excited to meet him. These days are so special to us for a variety of reasons, not least because it allows families and adopted children to meet and support each other – this is an integral part of the work we do”.

Morgan Hunt were thrilled to be able to contribute to the success of such a worthwhile event and help support the great work Cabrini do. The DKH Legacy Trust is a long-standing charity partner of Morgan Hunt and so it was a real honour for us to be able to bring these two brilliant charities together for this event.

Part of our vision is to use our position to help the wider community and ensure we operate as an ethically sound and responsible organisation.
