The British Lung Foundation raised £5820 at the 2013 H&V News Awards.
H&V News are proud to have supported the British Lung Foundation again this year. Audience members were able to take part in the charity casino after the awards ceremony.
One person in five in the UK is affected by lung disease. Millions more are at risk. The British Lung Foundation is here for every one of them, leading the fight against lung disease.
Founded in 1985 the charity supports people affected by lung conditions, is dedicated to funding vital research so that new treatments and cures can help save lives and promotes better understanding of lung disease, campaigning for change in the nation’s lung health.
The British Lung Foundation actively campaigns around mesothelioma as an issue through a three tiered programme of scientific research, support and care for those affected and awareness raising across the minds of those at risk through the successful asbestos awareness campaign, Take 5 and Stay Alive.
The Foundation commented: “We know asbestos related disease is still real danger for people working in this industry. It’s fantastic to have the opportunity to get our asbestos awareness message to this audience and amazing how receptive and generous they have been on the night.”
The H&V News Awards took place on April 25 at the Grosvenor House Hotel.
