Cygnus Ltd. and Milton Keynes Hospital Charity announce formal partnership

After two years of successful partnership working, Cygnus and Milton Keynes Hospital Charity are coming together in a formal, strategic partnership.

The partnership will see both organisations working together long-term and much more closely, to support the charity’s aims of making a difference to patients, their families and the staff who treat them at Milton Keynes University Hospital.

Milton Keynes Hospital Charity supports the hospital by funding items, projects and other areas which go over and above the NHS standard provision.

Cygnus, a creative design and digital agency based next to Willen Lake, has been working closely with the charity for the past two years on various fundraising opportunities and initiatives.

The Cygnus team have been involved in a variety of events and initiatives to raise awareness through numerous team fundraising events. Passionate to help raising funds they also support the charity with brand development, sponsored creative materials and collaboration through charity lead projects such as ‘Horizons’ project with MK College students.

Martin Carmody, Managing Director at Cygnus, said: “We fully appreciate the wealth of Milton Keynes opportunities and the strengths of the community. Our relationship has been built over the years through a shared mindset and team values. We’re entrenched in a variety of projects and it’s refreshing to work with such a progressive, forward thinking team. We saw this as a natural, next step in our partnership and we’re certainly looking forward to adding more value through a creative strategy and various digital opportunities.”

Vanessa Holmes, Head of Charity at Milton Keynes Hospital Charity said: “In a time of so much uncertainty, it’s wonderful to announce this strategic partnership and know that our friends at Cygnus will be supporting us long-term!

“It’s been such a pleasure working with the Cygnus team, so it seems natural to create a more formal partnership, whilst celebrating all the great work that’s already taken place. Thank you Cygnus for helping your local hospital charity.”
