The research sector's independent charity wants you to help raise funds and awareness 16-20 October 2017

Following the success of MRBA’s first ever Helping Researchers in Need Fundraising Week in 2015, the next Fundraising Week is planned for 16-20 October to increase awareness and raise money so they can expand the scope of their work and help more people.


Thanks to individuals and organisations across the sector, over £17,000 was raised in 2015. You cycled, baked cakes, ran marathons, jumped, walked, baked more cakes, hosted pot luck lunches and shook the MRBA charity bucket. This time, as part of their 40th anniversary celebrations, the goal is to generate £40K in donations and sponsorship this year, and it is hoped that this event will raise about half of the target amount.

To sign up, just contact naming an 'MRBA Champion' for your company who will organise activities. For more information visit the MRBA website and follow MRBA on Facebook and Twitter.
