It is Giving Tuesday on Tuesday 2nd December; a global day of giving. Started in 2012, it is a seasonable reminder to set aside some time or money to support charities across the world.
Seeing an opportunity to channel the generous spirit of the day, Wellbeing of Women will be promoting #givingtuesday on Facebook and Twitter to raise awareness (and hopefully a little bit of money) to allow us to continue to improve the lives of women and babies through ground-breaking medical research.
Harris Programme Grant
Wellbeing of Women awards a £1m ‘Harris Research Grant’ to University of Liverpool and Liverpool Women’s Hospital for vital research into premature birth.
Wellbeing of Women today announced it has chosen University of Liverpool and Liverpool Women’s Hospital as the recipient of a £1 million grant to pioneer vital research into premature birth.
This exciting development is made possible through the personal generosity of Lord and Lady Harris of Peckham who have supported the women’s health charity for 30 years.
Their hugely-inspiring donation will be made available over the next five years and will enable the opening of a new Harris/Wellbeing of Women Centre for Pre Term Birth Research at Liverpool Women’s Hospital.
