Sepsis Trust (£775)

Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.  The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) was established as a charity in 2012 with the objective of saving 12,500 lives every year. It is committed to changing the way the NHS deals with Sepsis, to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis. Every penny donated is valuable in helping achieve our goals.  Together we can help to mend Sepsis.
