We are very pleased to announce that ACT- Addenbrooke's Charitable Trust, is our official charity partner for 2016.
ACT is the only registered charity dedicated to supporting innovation in patient care across Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which runs Addenbrooke’s and the Rosie hospitals.
The hospitals have earned the reputation of being among the world's best academic healthcare organisations, and ACT's aim is to support those achievements by raising funds for cutting edge technology, additional specialist staff, environmental enhancements and extra comforts for patients that make all the difference over and above what is possible with NHS funding alone.
Deputy Director of Fundraising, Samantha Sherratt, considers this partnership to be an important one. "We are delighted to be the charity partner for the 2016 Cambridge ArtFair; particularly as this year marks the hospital's 250th anniversary. It is such a special year for us."
"Although only in it's 4th year, the Cambridge Art Fair has quickly become a Cambridge institution. While Addenbrookes is clearly much older, we share some of the same ideals- to bring excellence to the city for the benefit of not only local residents but those further afield too."
Craig Kerrecoe, Managing Director of Red Dot Events Limited, the organisers of Cambridge Art Fair, agrees. "We are very pleased to be able to support this impressive and incredibly vital charity. Samantha and the team at ACT do such an important job providing funding for early-stage research projects. This funding often leads to more ambitious research opportunities and can be essential in identifying new cures and advances in treatment."
