Employee Charity – Dementia UK
In 2023, we are supporting Dementia UK as the employee charity of choice 2023.
Dementia can affect a person at any age however, it is more common in people over 65. It is a range of progressive conditions that affect the brain impacting the ability to remember, think and speak. By 2025, it is estimated that over one million people in the UK will have a diagnosis of dementia, and almost all of us will know someone living with the condition.
Client Charity – The Liz Clarke-Saul Fund
“The Liz Clarke-Saul Fund for Adamantinoma Research” is a special fund under the umbrella of the Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT) CIO No. 1159590. Liz established this fund in 2019 with her husband, Jack, after learning that the extremely rare cancer that had resulted in her leg being amputated as a child had returned and was incurable. At that time there had been no research into her condition; a situation that she wanted to change.
The two research projects which are mentioned on the Fund page have yielded very promising results, and BCRT has just put out a new grant call for further research.
We are delighted to be able to support this charity in 2023.
Defibrillator in Poole
In 2019, in collaboration with Martin Hyland of Immerse Medical, Professional First Aid solutions for UK businesses based in Dorset, Baggette & Company Ltd installed a defibrillator machine outside their offices situated at Braeside Business Park, Poole. The funds were raised in partnership with businesses in the area including Extracair, Mercedes Benz and Dental Design Products Ltd.
Immerse Medical provided training on the use of the equipment along with in house CPR and further first aid training.
