Institute of Directors name Mencap as new charity partner

By John Mulgrew

The Institute of Directors (IoD) has chosen Mencap as the business body's new charity partner.

The learning disability charity will partner with the organisation for the next year. The IoD will work alongside it to raise money for the charity's programmes at the Mencap Centre in south Belfast, as well as across Northern Ireland.

"The IoD NI has a commitment to supporting those who need our help through our charity of the year," Ian Sheppard, chairman of the IoD said.

In June, the IoD raised £2,700 for Mencap at its 60th anniversary ball at Titanic Belfast.

Vanessa Elder, head of fundraising at Mencap, said: "We would like to thank the IoD for selecting Mencap for this incredible partnership and we are delighted to have the opportunity to gain support from industry professionals across Northern Ireland."
