It is no big secret that here, at Osborne Morris & Morgan, community support and charity work is very important to us. We’re proud to support the many local organisations and initiatives which help to improve the lives of people within our community of Bedfordshire and beyond.
Here are just some that we work closely with…
Members of staff at Osborne Morris & Morgan often help to raise funds for local charity, Harry’s Rainbow. The charity works tirelessly to support families in the Milton Keynes and surrounding areas, who have lost a significant loved one, such as a parent or a sibling.
They do this by providing resources, group activities, trips and family outings and access to their monthly Rainbow group.
We stand with the charity in believing that families should not have to pay to support their grieving children, particularly when they are also grieving for their partner or child.
To find out more about Harry’s Rainbow and the work that they do, please visit their website HERE.
We are proud to support KidsOut – a charity that delivers a range of services to disadvantaged children.
These are children who are the most vulnerable, have been abused, find themselves living in refuges, have suffered a serious injury and are disabled. KidsOut aims to give those children positive experiences to support them becoming future members of our society and workforce.
These services include “A Big Day Out”, which takes place every June and involves taking 25,000 disadvantaged children out for a day. This creates a lasting memory for those children who have never had the opportunity to, for example, visit the seaside, or a theme park. The charity also provides a Toy Box service whereby children are provided with a box of brand new toys, when they find themselves relocated. This helps bring stability and fun into the children’s lives, when they need it the most.
KidsOut also organise “Fun Days” in which children are taken out to local attractions and they also fund “Phyzzpod”. This is a cost-effective sensory environment which helps stimulate imaginations, develop speech and expressive skills in those children that through their experiences, have not been able to develop adequately.

Leighton Buzzard Festival Singers
We are pleased to support our local choir with a £1,000 sponsorship donation.
Music fan and Managing Partner at OM&M, Tim Woolford, said;
“OM&M is delighted to support the talented singers who dedicate their time to rehearse and perform for our local community. We’re lucky to have a group such as this in the town and we wish them every success in their up and coming events”.
The Leighton Buzzard Festival Singers was formed in 1951 – the year of the Festival of Britain. The group consists of 60 singers, who rehearse every Monday evening at Clipstone Brook Lower School in Leighton Buzzard. The group usually perform two concerts each year in Leighton Buzzard and also perform at summer fetes, dinners and weddings.
LEIGHTON LINSLADE ROTARY CLUB
We have joined forces and partnered with the Rotary Club of Leighton Linslade to help deliver projects as part of the ‘Yes We Can’ program.
A donation of £1,000 has recently been given to help fund some of the planned sports days and are working closely to promote the overall initiative and all of it’s projects.
The ‘Yes We Can’ program was founded in 2017 by Rotary Club member, Richard Johnson OBE, after he noticed a distinct lack of sports activities for the disabled in the local community.
Today, the initiative is supported by other organisations, including Leighton Buzzard Mencap and the Families United Network, to bring affordable and sustainable sporting opportunities to those with a disability.
