MGL Foundation Trust Supports Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care

MGL Group is delighted to announce our support for the incredible work that Daft as a Brush Cancer Patient Care does in our region through a £10,000 donation from the MGL Foundation Trust.

The charity provides a vital service, assisting 50,000 North East cancer patients annually with free transportation to and from hospitals for treatment. This service ensures patients are collected and transported safely and comfortably to their treatment facilities. A volunteer companion accompanies the patient during Chemotherapy and/or Radiotherapy sessions if needed. Patients are then returned to their homes.

With a fleet of ambulances, all of which have been adopted by primary schools from across the region, and a dedicated team of volunteers, the charity fulfils its mission to support those in need.

Daft as a Brush is highly regarded in our community and holds a special place in our hearts. Our Chairman Alan Davison’s longstanding friendship with founder Brian Burnie has fostered a shared commitment to charitable initiatives.

Through our donation, which we handed over at our Headquarters, Davison House, we aim to support this remarkable charity in extending its reach and helping even more cancer patients attend their medical appointments.

The Daft as a Brush service is a vital facility for our North East communities, transporting patients, free of charge, from their homes to the main Newcastle hospitals for cancer treatment. The charity relies on donations and fundraising initiatives to cover operational costs, this very kind and thoughtful donation will power our whole feet for weeks to come, helping hundreds of patients on their journey to recovery. Our most sincere thanks to Alan, Sheila, Gillian and the whole team at MGL Group for their kindness.
