Global MSC Security has chosen The Lily Foundation as its nominated charity for the 2019 edition of the Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition, which takes place on 11 and 12 November in Bristol. This year’s event – for which Risk Xtra is serving as Official Media Partner – will focus on the ethical use of surveillance.
Founded back in 2008 by Liz Curtis in memory of her daughter Lily, who tragically died from mitochondrial disease at just eight months old, The Lily Foundation is a national charity committed to finding a cure for this disease through funding research, as well as raising awareness and supporting more than 300 families.
Global MSC Security was introduced to The Lily Foundation by Sarah Moore*, a mother from Bath who lost two children (Harriet and Kimberley) to mitochondrial disease.
Global MSC Security’s managing director Derek Maltby told Risk Xtra: “When we heard Sarah’s story and about the work of The Lily Foundation, we instantly wanted to support the charity. Each year, we choose a charity to benefit from the generosity of security practitioners who join us at our gala dinner and I can think of no worthier cause to support in 2019 than The Lily Foundation.”
Previous beneficiaries from the Global MSC Security gala include the Royal British Legion, Bristol Children’s Hospital’s Grand Appeal, Children’s Hospice South West, the Above and Beyond Charity and Movember.
The gala charity dinner will take place on Monday 11 November at The Bristol Hotel in central Bristol. The doors to the annual Global MSC Security Conference and Exhibition will open on the same day for an exhibition preview with the conference taking place on 12 November. The event is free-to-attend for all delegates who will receive double Continuing Professional Development (CPD) points from The Security Institute for attendance.
