Examples of the charities, organisations and sectors we’ve supported:


St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield

St Luke’s Hospice in Sheffield needed to undertake a multi-million pound redevelopment of its inpatient care facilities.  Morgen Thomas Ltd supported that outstanding organisation with a Planning Study to assess their potential for a major capital appeal, identify its leaders and major donor prospects and develop a strategy.

We then provided specialist support for their Trustees, senior management and fundraising team on a day to day basis as they implemented the Room to Care appeal – without erosion of annual giving.  St Luke’s exceeded its target of £5 million with a boost of over £850,000 in government funding and new major donors are now engaged with the ongoing programme work of St Luke’s.

Most importantly the people of Sheffield now have a beautiful, calming environment when they require end of life care and St Luke’s facilities now match the excellence of the care they have always provided.

Police Arboretum Memorial Trust/
UK Police Memorial

Leaders of the Police service in the UK have long held a desire to commemorate the thousands of men and women who have given their lives to protect their communities.  The UK is the birthplace of modern Policing yet no comprehensive memorial exists.

Our team supported the Police service with a wide ranging Feasibility Study, including fundraising, design and build at the National Memorial Arboretum, and governance.  We were further retained to help establish a new charity, the Police Arboretum Memorial Trust.

As a comprehensive, 360 option, the team directs and manages all day to day aspects of the charity: fundraising, marketing and communications, government relations, design and construction, budgets and finance, reporting and compliance – even the design and delivery of the digital and interactive aspects of the UK Police Memorial.

The Trust has raised over £2 million in just 18 months.  We worked closely with Government to secure endorsement and a gift of £1 million from the Chancellor of the Exchequer.
