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. This charity is now delivering into 16 countries in the World and supports the treatment of 6,000 children annually. Gordon is currently Chairman of World Child Cancer Global which co-ordinates the global work of the charity and encourages and supports the establishment of World Child Cancer Charities in countries outside the UK.
At the University of Hertfordshire Gordon was Vice Chairman of the Board of Governors and Chairman of the Finance Committee until 2018. 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 helped to establish a major fundraising and research project where he is 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.
