North West brain haemorrhage charity seeks out principal business partner

The Natalie Kate Moss Trust, which funds ground-breaking research in to the treatment and prevention of brain haemorrhages and stroke, is on the lookout for a principal business partner to support its vision.

Statistics from Brain Research UK, show that stroke occurs more than 100,000 times per year in the UK, once every five minutes. It is the fourth single leading cause of death in the UK, responsible for 35,000 deaths annually. That's a life lost every 17 minutes.

According to The Stroke Association, stroke kills twice as many women as breast cancer and more men than prostate and testicular cancer combined each year.

“This death rate has not changed in over 30 years, which is in stark contrast to other diseases where the death rates have dramatically improved”, comments Professor Stuart Allan from the University of Manchester.

The Natalie Kate Moss Trust was set up in 2012 following the sudden death of 26-year-old University of Manchester alumni, Natalie Moss, following a brain haemorrhage. Earlier this year, the charity committed to raising £300,000 for the University of Manchester to fund further research into brain haemorrhage.

This will fund the salary and running costs of a post PhD research fellow for three and a half years, within the stroke research team at the recently launched Geoffrey Jefferson Brain Research Centre.

Professor Stuart Allan said: “There is currently no successful treatment for haemorrhagic stroke and this is a key area of research focus for the Manchester Stroke Group. Our strengths in Neuroscience research and links with the UK’s largest clinical stroke centre make Manchester particularly well-placed to lead the search for better treatments.”

The Natalie Kate Moss Trust is now on the lookout for a principal business partner to support it through an annual pledge of £30k. In return, the charity will offer the business a number of significant benefits including publicity and promotional opportunities as well as guaranteed places in a number of race events and access to the University of Manchester for PR purposes and after-dinner speeches.

Natalie's sister, Fiona Moss, who is co-founder and trustee of the Natalie Kate Moss Trust, said: “Most of us have been affected, either directly or indirectly, by strokes and we want to work in partnership with a business that wants to help us to fund this world class research and make a real change in the treatment and prevention of stroke worldwide.

“We also want a business partner that will see this as an opportunity to boost the team spirit of their workforce by encouraging them all to support this fantastic cause.”
