Action Medical Research Peterborough Committee surpasses £1 million fundraising milestone

Published on


The Peterborough volunteer Committee of children’s charity Action Medical Research is proud to announce a significant milestone in their fundraising to help sick and disabled babies, children and young people. With unwavering dedication and boundless enthusiasm, the committee has successfully raised over £1 million, marking a momentous achievement in their ongoing efforts to help save and improve the lives of children through pioneering medical research.

Since its inception in 1996, the Peterborough Committee has been at the forefront of fundraising initiatives, tirelessly organising and hosting a diverse range of events that have captivated the community and garnered widespread support. From electrifying Las Vegas-style cabaret evenings to the intellectually stimulating annual quiz featuring the formidable intellect of The Dark Destroyer, Shaun Wallace, the committee has consistently delivered unparalleled entertainment while championing a noble cause.

One of the most cherished traditions of the Peterborough Committee is the renowned Tony Hadley Golf Classic, an event that has become synonymous with excellence and generosity over the past eighteen years. Through this prestigious tournament, golf enthusiasts have come together to raise vital funds for medical research, showcasing the power of community spirit and collective action in making a difference.

"This remarkable achievement is a testament to the unwavering commitment and boundless generosity of the Peterborough Committee," said Lewis Coghlin, Director of Fundraising at Action Medical Research. "Their dedication to our cause has been truly inspiring, and we are immensely grateful for their tireless efforts in advancing medical research to help transform the lives of children."

The funds raised by the Peterborough Committee support Action Medical Research's mission to save and change children’s lives through funding groundbreaking research. From pioneering treatments for rare and devastating conditions to preventative measures that promote lifelong health and wellbeing, every pound raised brings us one step closer to a brighter, healthier future for generations to come.

As we celebrate this extraordinary milestone, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the Peterborough Committee, volunteers, sponsors, and supporters who have made this achievement possible. Together, we are truly making a difference and giving hope to children and families in need.
