Action Research Launches Online Sponsorship

17 May 2001
Action Research, the leading medical research charity, has added an innovative ebusiness application to their internet site - online sponsorship. The application, believed to be the first by a charity, allows fundraisers to raise money securely online by creating their own individual accounts on www.action.org.uk. Mike Deyes, Action Research’s New Media Officer, said: "Charities have been looking for ways to raise money online for some time with varied success. This application combines the benefits of ebusiness with an established and successful way of fundraising". He continued: "The individual fundraiser benefits from a extremely useful tool, which they can publicise widely, while Action Research will capture data and raise income. The application also takes advantage of Gift Aid". Online Sponsorship is suitable for any fundraising event, large or small. Action Research is currently running the Touching Lives campaign - raising £2 million for vital medical research to benefit children and families across the UK. Action Research can genuinely claim to have touched the life of every single person in the UK. Through vital research into the polio and rubella vaccines, hip replacement and ultrasound, the charity has been at the forefront of many important medical advances.
