The SARD team members have always been keen to give their time to raise funds for worthwhile causes. We even have our own Charity Champion, Vicki, leading the way in making a difference.
Our chosen charity is the new Kent and Medway Medical School, which opened its doors in September 2020 to its first cohort of aspiring doctors wishing to train in 21st century medicine.
Supporting KMMS made perfect sense to us. Its purpose is close to our own mission of helping to maintain the NHS as a world-class health service, and it was a unanimous decision by the team to align SARD with the education of the next generation of doctors. It’s also a local charity, as the school is close to our office at the University of Kent, Canterbury.
Since choosing KMMS, we’ve already raised £1,300, and we have more fundraising events happening over the coming months, including a quiz at the University in 2021 (COVID restriction dependent).
Everyone’s invited to participate and suggest ideas, be it running, jumping, baking or quizzing. Many hands make lots of money for a very good cause.
We are also proud sponsors of The SARD Prize, a £250 cash prize awarded to the student achieving the highest marks in their first year of studies.
