Action in the Autumn
Over 60 fabulous stalls selling oils, cheese, wine, gifts art and much more will come together to help raise vital funds for the charity.
Lucy Hynes Fundraising Manager for Action Medical Research says: “This is a unique event as it brings together such a huge variety of stalls – everything from cakes to presents will be on sale. Knowing that the money is going towards helping babies and children, you can all indulge in lots of guilt-free shopping. With so much to choose from you are unlikely to disappointed, so please come and help raise vital funds for sick babies and children.”
The event will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children. Action Medical Research is celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2012 and has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952. The charity is currently supporting work around meningitis, epilepsy, cerebral palsy, premature birth and some very rare conditions that severely affect children.

Action Medical Research - the leading UK-wide medical research charity dedicated to helping babies and children - is celebrating 60 years of vital research in 2012. We’ve been funding medical breakthroughs since we began in 1952 and have spent more than £100 million on research that has helped save thousands of children’s lives and changed many more. Today, we continue to find and fund the very best medical research to help stop the suffering of babies and children caused by disease and disability. We want to make a difference in:
•tackling premature birth and treating sick and vulnerable babies
•helping children affected by disability, disabling conditions and infections
•targeting rare diseases that together severely affect many forgotten children.
But there is still so much more to do. Make 2012 a special year and help fund more life-changing research for some of the UK’s sickest babies and children.
