Did you catch our patron Fern Britton on ITV’s Good Morning Britain this morning? Fern was talking all things Genesis Research Trust. Fern is an incredibly pro-active patron who takes on our cycling challenges and mucks in with our wonderful participants. Fern has taken part in fourteen of our cycling challenges and has helped raise over £200,000 for the trust. Whilst on Good Morning Britain Fern mentioned the amazing number of miles she’s cycled on behalf of the charity; #Challenge58 saw Team Genesis tackle 370 miles around the Scottish Highlands.
“No baby should be born too early because the effects can be tragic. Prematurity is the biggest cause of death in infants in the UK. So many parents do not get to experience the joy of bringing home their baby soon after giving birth and when a baby is born too soon it is in an exceptionally vulnerable state. Help us to give every baby a health start and a happy life.”
Fern Britton, Patron, Genesis Research Trust
Genesis Research Trust is a cause close to her heart and too many throughout the UK, as we fund vital research into; premature birth, miscarriage, still birth and female cancers. The causes and conditions that we research affect many families throughout the UK and internationally.
