Tyco Are The Tops!

Last month we received a cheque from Tyco Fire & Safety for an amazing £13,000 – which has been put to some very good use by the charity this year. At their request, £3000 was used to enable our Trustee Dave Lenegan to attend the World Burns Congress in Texas, where he was able to speak with young and adult burns survivors as well as those who work in the rescue services from across the world. This was a very profound experience for Dave, who was burn-injured himself as a child, and he brings back a renewed enthusiasm for ensuring that this charity continues to support young people in the best way possible.
The remaining £10,000 donation will be used to fund places at Burns Camps, support additional psychological support activities for burns survivors and also help fund two research projects at the Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital which will have a direct impact on the care received by patients being treated at this specialist centre.
