Action Medical Research
2021 sees the launch of a new partnership with children’s charity Action Medical Research. Action has been saving and changing children’s lives through medical research for nearly 70 years and have been involved with medical breakthroughs that have changed the lives of millions worldwide.
There are plans for many activities throughout the year to get involved with (COVID allowing) and we look forward to supporting Action to fund vital research.
In 2022, Action are focusing their work on Rare Diseases. As you know some of these conditions only affect 1 or 2 thousand children but they are an organisation that pioneers research to help them. Very much helping where there is most need.
Here is a story that features little Danny who has a disease called Hunters Syndrome. Please spare a few minutes to watch the video.
Alzheimer’s Society & Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD)
In 2017, Alzheimer’s Society joined forces with one of the oldest industries in the world to form Insurance United Against Dementia (IUAD). Dementia is set to be the 21st century’s biggest killer, with someone developing the disease every three minutes in the UK.
We pledged to support the IUAD campaign for three years (2018 – 2020). Over our partnership we funded vital research, raised awareness of dementia, created 16 Dementia Friends across the business and took on a huge range of fundraisers including bike rides, Tough Mudders, golf days and Gin nights!
