Action Medical Research adopted by DX Group

27 September 2016

Action Medical Research is delighted to announce its partnership with DX, the leading independent mail, parcels and logistics end-to-end network operator in the UK and Ireland.

The Horsham-based children’s charity will be among three charities supported by DX over the coming year, along with Battle Batten and CLIC Sargent.

The logistics firm will be running fundraising events throughout the year, encouraging employees to think of creative and fun ways to raise as much money as possible, and has pledged to match the money raised, up to £50,000. All money raised over the course of the 12 months will be equally divided between the three charities.

“We invited all the charities to present their stories to us, and it is safe to say that there wasn’t a single dry eye in the house. We couldn’t choose between the three, so instead decided to support them all,” says Stuart Godman, Chief Strategy Officer at DX.

“As a business we are committed and passionate about giving back to the communities that we serve, this year we are focusing on charities aimed at helping children who are battling life changing diseases, such as cancer, and CLN5 Batten Disease.”

“We are very proud to be among the three charities DX is supporting over the next 12 months,” adds Toby Tennant, Head of Relationship Fundraising for Action Medical Research.

“There are hundreds of thousands of children in the UK whose lives are devastated by disease and disability. We need support to fund vital research to develop new treatments and cures for sick babies and children which is why the support of DX staff is so important.”

For more than 60 years Action Medical Research has helped pioneer treatments and ways to prevent disease that have benefited millions of people in the UK and across the world. Research they’ve funded has helped to beat polio in the UK, develop ultrasound in pregnancy, fight meningitis and prevent stillbirths.

Action Medical Research is currently funding research into meningitis, Down syndrome, epilepsy and premature birth, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.
