Thank you to our fundraisers of 2017!

Sincere thanks to our wonderful fundraisers who have supported the Anne Rowling Regenerative Neurology Clinic at the University of Edinburgh. Their support is truly inspiring and together, in 2017, they raised £40,000!

All their hard work helps us stay at the forefront of research and help ensure the best care and treatments possible. Thanks again to all the fundraisers who supported the Anne Rowling Clinic in 2017 – they are simply the best.
