CMJ raises £5,000 for Motor Neurone Disease Association at Spring Trade Event
March 19, 2014 – The Company of Master Jewellers (CMJ) raised a total of £5,000 for the Motor Neurone Disease Association (MNDA) from the sale of its CMJ Fest T shirts, a charity auction on March 16 at the Music Festival themed event and donations taken throughout the two-day trade event in Birmingham, which was attended by over 750 people.
The two biggest donors to the charity were CMJ suppliers Pandora and BQW.
The Motor Neurone Disease Association funds and promotes global research into MND and provides support to people affected by Motor Neurone Disease.
It was chosen in memory of CMJ member Simon Cupitt from Cupitt Jewellers who sadly lost his battle against the disease early last year.
In his memory, CMJ member John Henn of TA Henn Jewellers in Wolverhampton is raising money for the MNDA in a sponsored bike ride across the Alps this year with Olly Cupitt, Simon Cupitt’s 15 year-old son.
