The Sick Children's Trust

The Cystic Fibrosis Trust
As part of our Community involvement we’ve recently made a donation to The Cystic Fibrosis Trust and plan to support their work as a charity going forward. This was an easy decision for two reasons.
Firstly, our well known and well-loved Operations Team Leader, Ed Smith, has recently had a little daughter affected by the condition. Secondly, they are a fantastic charity, dedicated to fighting for a life unlimited by cystic fibrosis and making great strides through their dedication.

The Brain Tumour Charity
The organisation is the world’s leading brain tumour charity and the largest dedicated funder of research into brain tumours globally. The Brain Tumour Charity relies entirely on voluntary donations.
A close family member of one of our staff has been successfully treated for a brain tumour and we have made a contribution to the charity as a token of thanks for all they are doing.
The Brain Tumour Charity fund pioneering research to increase survival and improve treatment options and raise awareness of the symptoms and effects of brain tumours to get earlier diagnosis and to help families cope with everything that the diagnosis of a brain tumour brings. They also provide support for everyone affected so that they can live as full a life as possible, with the best quality of life.
The Charity funds and promotes the UK-wide HeadSmart campaign, raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of brain tumours in children and young people to make earlier diagnosis a reality. Earlier diagnosis will reduce long term disabilities and save lives. In just three years, HeadSmart has reduced average diagnosis time from 9.1 weeks to 6.5 weeks.
