18-07-2012

The Møller Centre is delighted to announce that it will be sponsoring the Danish Paralympic team at this year’s Paralympic Games held in London. The Møller Centre has a close connection with interests in Denmark and is keen to support special events and business opportunities.

The Maersk Mc-Kinney Møller Centre for Continuing Education was built with a gift of approximately £10 million to Churchill College.  The money was donated by the A.P. Møller & Chastine Mc-Kinney Møller Foundation, a Danish institution, set up in 1953 by shipping magnate A. P. Møller.  The Foundation makes contributions to good causes, especially those involving national heritage, shipping, industry and science.

Mr Møller proposed the concept of a ‘Centre for Excellence’ for The Møller Centre which would include meeting rooms and bedrooms and bring together commerce and education.  He believed that with access to the full educational and research resources of theUniversity of Cambridge, The Møller Centre would be able to offer the highest standard of continuing education to international businesses wishing to develop their leaders and aspiring leaders.

The Møller Centre was formally opened by Her Majesty Queen Ingrid of Denmark on Friday 2October 1992.

“The Møller Centre continues to support opportunities for both the UK and Denmark,” comments Christine Hartshorne, Marketing Manager of The Møller Centre. “Sponsoring the Danish paralympic team is a great way to continue our commitment to supporting Danish interests as well as helping the team in their participation in the Paralympic Games. We wish the Danish paralympic team success and hope they enjoy the Paralympic Games in London.”

 

The Møller Institute at Churchill College in the University of Cambridge provides space and context for the development of current and future leaders in government, industry, academia and civil society.
