The Maria Hanson Foundation

I have always said one of the things I love about working for Sellick Partnership is the fact that as a business we get involved with charities and as individuals we are encouraged to take part in charity events either for the organisations we support as a business or individual charities close to our hearts.

Nikki Graham, Associate Director of the Midlands team, and my manager, has recently become an Ambassador for the Maria Hanson Foundation. Nikki was first introduced to Maria Hanson through the Derby Telegraph Business Awards where The Maria Hanson Foundation were winners of the 'not-for-profit' award 2015.

The Maria Hanson Foundation provides memorable experiences for children and adults who have been diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses. Maria has also recently set up 'Daz's Den' which is a donated caravan based at the seaside town of Mablethorpe. 'Daz's Den' was set up in memory of Maria's friend Darren Preston who sadly passed away through PTSD last year. This particular caravan is dedicated to serving and ex-serving military personnel and their families, who have suffered life threatening injuries whilst in service, including PTSD.

After meeting with Maria and learning more about the Charity and the experiences it provides for individuals and their families, Nikki wanted to get involved and is delighted to join the team of Ambassadors - "the vital work they do is of huge importance to improving the lives of people with life limiting illness. To help raise awareness of the work they do and give back to good causes like this is an honour”.

Personally, I decided that next year I want to get involved in a charity event of some description, probably fitness related and I find Nikki's commitment to be an Ambassador very inspiring.
