UKH Foundation has proudly donated £2,000 to Action Medical Research, a UK-wide charity saving and changing children’s lives through medical research.

Despite the huge progress that has been achieved in medicine since Action Medical Research was founded in 1952, there are still hundreds of thousands of children in the UK today who are affected by disease and disability. However, surprisingly, child health research is underfunded in the UK. Action Medical Research has a vital job to do in helping fill this gap, and the charity is extremely well placed to do so.

They are funding more than 75 projects at leading hospitals, universities and specialist centres across the UK. The £2,000 donation from UK Healthcare will help Action Medical Research to continue supporting world-class researchers and clinicians in areas such as premature birth, cerebral palsy, autism spectrum conditions and some rare and devastating illnesses.

Jenny Edwards, Director of Fundraising at Action Medical Research, said: “We are grateful to UKH Foundation for the generous donation to Action Medical Research. With their support, we can continue to fund much-needed medical research to help save and change the lives of sick babies and children.”

If you are interested in helping to fundraise for Action Medical Research, they have various events happening over the next few months, including the Ride100 series and Davina’s Big Sussex Bike Ride on 25th June. For more information, visit the events page on their website.
