We were visited recently by Toby Tennant, Head of Relationship Fundraising at Action Medical Research, our 2022 local charity partner. Toby spent some time with us to explain all of the incredible things that Action do to help improve the lives of so many children affected by premature birth and complications in pregnancy.
Action Medical Research was founded in 1952 and is based just up the road from our office in Horsham, West Sussex. They focus on funding research to prevent and treat disease and disability in babies and children. Action’s mission is to save and change children’s lives through medical research, developing treatments, vaccinations and cures.
We at Next Phase are extremely proud to be associated with Action Medical Research this year as one of our 2 charity partners. We are determined to raise even more this year than the £3,000+ that we raised for our local partners in 2021, through a series of different fundraising activities throughout the year.

Any one of us, or our loved ones, may be affected in some way by circumstances arising from premature birth and pregnancy complications, so it is amazing to learn about Action’s history and what they do as an independent organisation.
