This year’s #GivingTuesday just keeps on giving!

Giving Tuesday

This week across social media people have been taking part in the world’s global generosity movement #GivingTuesday. It’s never too late to support Overcoming MS for #GivingTuesday, you can read OMSer Nicole’s story of hope here.

A huge thank you, Alex, and Lloyds of LondonAlex Storey Giving Tuesday 2020

Perhaps you remember Alex our #GivingTuesday champion in 2020? Thanks to Alex, Lloyd’s has awarded our charity an incredible £25,000 this November, as part of their annual Lloyd’s Market Charity Awards, to help people live well with MS worldwide.

Lloyd’s are the world’s insurance market, conducting business in over 200 countries and territories. As part of the annual awards, Lloyd’s recognised Alex’s effort and commitment to you, the global OMS community. Alex volunteers as a local Ambassador, has been a guest on our podcast, and helped us to raise needed funds for #GivingTuesday 2020.

Over the past eleven years, the Lloyd’s Market Charity Awards have given £1.5million to the nominated charities of almost 400 people across Lloyds. Lloyd’s provided this gift to us in direct response to the significant funding gap we have experienced due to the pandemic.

John Neal, Lloyd's CEO said, "Each one of the organisations receiving an award give vital support to so many across our communities, and I'm incredibly proud that Lloyd's can support their invaluable work."
