Touching Lives - February 2007
First Action Partners welcomed
Peter Little and Louise Cartledge have committed support to our Preventing the Pain of Chronic Conditions programme area for a three year period. They said,”We are proud to be founding Action Partners, supporting essential research to prevent the pain of chronic conditions. We hope that our donations mean that we will be there at the next breakthrough.”
As you may have read last issue, Action Medical Research’s new Action Partners programme was launched at the Royal College of Surgeons in London at a private dinner hosted by Fiona Bruce, BBC Newscaster and long-term Action Medical Research supporter. Action Partners is dedicated to the targeted funding of medical advances in three core areas — Touching Tiny Lives, Stopping Suffering in Children and Preventing the Pain of Chronic Conditions. Several parties who attended the launch have already expressed an interest in joining the scheme.
^Action Partners, either individuals or companies, will be at the forefront of our work^, closely involved with specific projects that need financial impetus to achieve the breakthrough results we hope for. Action Partners who commit their support for three years can take advantage of the tax benefits, so an annual donation worth £5,000 to Action Medical Research would actually only cost around £3,000. Partners are free to choose their level of involvement with the charity and the area of research they are supporting, from regular newsletters or project visits, to dedicated reports or attending research presentations.
Action Partners really will make a difference. If you are interested in knowing more, and being there at the breakthrough, please contact Toby Tennant on email@example.com or 01403 327436 or visit www.action.org.uk/giving/action_partners
