Take Action this Halloween

15 October 2012
The Haverhill committee for children’s charity Action Medical Research is organising a Halloween Dinner and Dance on Saturday 27 October at Wickhambrook Memorial Social Centre, Wickhambrook.

The event which commences at 7pm encourages guests to dress up in black tie or Halloween fancy dress. The evening will be full of Halloween delights, include dancing to local band ‘The Process’ and a raffle you don’t want to miss!

Lucy Hynes, Fundraising Manager for Action Medical Research says: “This is an annual event that brings together people from the local community. We promise you a fun evening with music, dance and lots of lovely prizes to be won. So come along and indulge in some guilt-free Halloween celebration in the full knowledge that you are raising vital funds for sick babies and children.”

The Haverhill Action Medical Research Committee has been raising funds to save and change children’s lives since 1960.

This year Action Medical Research celebrates 60 years of vital research. The charity is currently supporting work around Down syndrome, 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.
