Gordon Morrison’s Charity work has spanned 20 years involving the creation of CLIC Sargent through a merger of two charities creating the largest childhood cancer support charity and more recently the development of a new charity, World Child Cancer.
World Child Cancer increases access to curative and palliative treatments for vulnerable children, and improves the support for families provided at the hospitals and at home.
World Child Cancer supports children with cancer in the developing world and after only 8 years we are working in16 developing countries and supporting almost 4,000 children annually. Gordon is currently Chairman of World Child Cancer Global and a Trustee of World Child Cancer USA.
Gordon is a Governor and Vice Chairman of the University of Hertfordshire. The University is one of the largest employers in Hertfordshire with over 2,700 staff and a student community exceeding 25,300, including more than 2,800 international students from 100 different countries. Recently he has helped to establish a major fundraising and research project where he will be chairing a group to raise £20m and deliver research that will reduce the malnourishment of at least 1million people across the World.
Gordon and his wife are Trustees of The Chaldean Charitable Trust. The charity makes grants to registered charities, particularly those which work with and for the benefit of children.
