Swanwick Lions Club donates 3,000 to UK Sepsis Trust


Sepsis is a life threatening illness that has been much in the news lately.  Swanwick Lions President Helen Mitchell suffered from sepsis a couple of years ago, and during her tenure as President, the Club made the UK Sepsis Trust their main fund raising target. Thankyou to all who helped us collect the donations and to all who donated.

At the end of July, the Club were pleased to present a cheque for 3,000 to local GP Dr McFarlane.

The Trust responded with the following letter of thanks:-

"2nd August 2018

Dear Helen

We are writing to thank you for the donation of 3,000.00 received by the UK Sepsis Trust from the Swanwick Lions club, Hampshire and forwarded by Dr McFarlane of Brook Lane Surgery.

Thanks to help from advocates and friends like you, UKST has seen public awareness of sepsis in the UK rise from 34% in 2010 to 70% in September 2016 - 42.7 million more people have now heard of sepsis as a result of our work. Your support is helping us to facilitate earlier identification and treatment of sepsis across the UK, which could save 14,000 lives every year.

On behalf of all those battling the terrible consequences of sepsis, thank you once again.

Yours Faithfully

Chief Executive

 Chair: UK Sepsis Trust

CEO: Global Sepsis Alliance"
