The integrated work they do on the frontline alongside the NHS, via their specialist Mesothelioma nurses is vital. The Goldsmiths’ Company Charity recognises the importance of providing core cost grants to charities that carry out essential support services such as Mesothelioma UK.”
Liz Darlison, Head of Services for Mesothelioma UK added: “We’re extremely grateful for the grant of £3,000 from the Goldsmiths’ Company Charity. Grants like this are vital to us as we rely entirely on donations and fundraisers to fund the running of the charity.
