£3 million donated

The Steve Morgan Foundation (SMF) is helping to find the cure for type 1 diabetes by making double the previous largest donation ever received by global research charity JDRF.

Steve Morgan, Chairman of the Steve Morgan Foundation, and wife Sally, a trustee, are spearheading the investment into the charity’s ambitious research programme to improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes, following the diagnosis of eight-year-old Hugo, Sally’s son and Steve’s stepson, with the condition.

The donation of £3million is being made to the world’s leading type 1 diabetes charity, JDRF, which is dedicated to finding the cure for people with the life-long condition.

 Sally and I have experienced first-hand the enormous impact that a type 1 diabetes diagnosis can have on a family,” says Steve, Founder and Chairman of the Steve Morgan Foundation and also Redrow PLC.

“From the initial stages of Hugo experiencing symptoms, to him being diagnosed and finding out how we manage this life-long condition, it has turned our lives upside down. We are in a fortunate position to be able to make a difference, and we hope this donation will prove a significant step towards funding research that we believe will be life changing for all the ‘Hugos’ of the world. We fully support JDRF’s ambition to improve the lives of people with type 1 diabetes and one day to eradicate the condition for good.”
