Reason Global have been proud to sponsor and attend many of the moving and storage industries leading events over the years, supporting the associations and industry organisations we work so closely with.
In 2017, we wanted to do all we could to use these opportunities to also raise the profile of our chosen company charity, Macmillan Cancer Support, alongside other worthy causes and approached the organisations we work with to see how they might help.
We were delighted by the positive response we received, with both the British Association of Removers (B.A.R) and the Self-Storage Association (SSA UK) providing ideas and help to create more value from sponsorship activities.
At this year’s B.A.R Conference we are pleased to be sponsoring the Overseas Mover of the Year Award and even more pleased that with B.A.R’s support, we have structured our sponsorship to also enable donations to the Association’s charity, The Removers’ Benevolent Association; and Macmillan.
The SSA, who host their annual conference alongside the Federation of European Self-Storage Associations (FEDESSA) conference, and CEO Rennie Schaefer came up with an inspired idea for our sponsorship this year. As a result, we are sponsoring the Charity Initiative Award and will split a set amount of that sponsorship money equally between the charity of the chosen winner and Macmillan, as our chosen charity, once again.
In addition to this, we were delighted when Britannia Movers chose Macmillan to be the recipient of all donations from their charity auction at their 2017 conference in Sorrento, raising just over £2,500 on the night.
Overall, we hope to raise just over £12,500 from these various events and would like to express our gratitude and thanks to everyone who has helped us raise money for these causes.
