In May, a 30-strong team of staff and management from JSA, the leading provider of specialist accountancy, payroll and employment services to contractors and freelancers, completed a 10K walk to raise funds in support of local Muscular Dystrophy charity, the Muscle Help Foundation (MHF).
Last week, Ben Dunn, MD of JSA, was on hand to present a cheque on behalf of the company for over £4000 raised from that walk to Michael McGrath, the CEO and founder of the MHF, himself diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at the age of 18 and now permanently in a wheelchair.
The MHF provides personalised, life-changing experiences – known as ‘Muscle Dreams’ – to children and young people across the UK who suffer with the muscle-wasting disease, Muscular Dystrophy and allied neuromuscular conditions.
Ben, pictured presenting the cheque to Michael at JSA’s offices in Watford, said: “We are delighted to be supporting the valuable work carried out by the Muscle Help Foundation and this is the first of many ways in which we will be working with the charity going forward, to help them raise funds for many future ‘Muscle Dreams’.”
Following the presentation, Ben and the staff joined Michael in doing the MHF ‘Muscle Warrior salute’, a visible sign of hope, courage and strength to all Muscular Dystrophy sufferers (pictured below).
