On Saturday 20th May at The Hunter Club in Bury St Edmunds, a host of East Anglian wonders – COLLARS, HORSE PARTY, THE DAZE, QUEEN DOGS and SIDEWINDER – are joining forces to raise money for the Royal Free Hospital’s Amyloidosis Research fund. The show is being held in memory of Shannon from Horse Party’s mum, Alison Hope, who passed away from the condition in 2020.
Amyloidosis is a rare disease, responsible for the death of about one person in every thousand who die in developed countries. There are at least 6,000 cases in the UK at any time. The condition causes a build-up of abnormal fibres within the body’s tissues, which can cause life-threatening organ failure. The Amyloidosis Research Fund within the Royal Free Charity exists to support the world leading research and development work of the Centre. The Fund provides fully flexible resources to enable immediate investigation and implementation of novel ideas by specialised staff and new equipment with related running costs. The team at the NAC has worked on many aspects of amyloidosis for more than 40 years, making fundamental discoveries about the disease.
In parallel, they have continuously devised and implemented new methods for diagnosis and treatment, leading to much improved outcomes for many patients. The 5,000 patients seen and followed each year in the Centre are the largest and most diverse cohort attending any specialist amyloidosis centre in the world, comprising a unique resource for all aspects of the study of the disease and its treatment.
All of the profits from this show will be donated to the fund, and cash donations will be gratefully accepted at the event.
