Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

Muscular Dystrophy Campaign

There are many different types of muscular dystrophy, and each affects different muscles. The severity of conditions and how they affect individuals varies greatly from person to person.  Most conditions are progressive, causing the muscles gradually to weaken over time, and can either be inherited or occur out of the blue where there is no family history.

Since it was established in 1959, the charity has contributed to crucial scientific breakthroughs in the field of muscular dystrophy and other neuromuscular conditions such as: laying the foundations for the promising technology of 'exon skipping' which is currently being tested in clinical trials for boys with Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and funding work that has led to a scientific breakthrough in finding a treatment for mitochondrial myopathy, which is now close to clinical trials.

Shipwrecked Mariners' Society

Shipwrecked Mariners' Society

The Shipwrecked Mariners' Society gives help in the event of shipwreck – several fishing vessels are lost every year - but our main purpose is to provide financial support to retired or permanently disabled seafarers and their widows/partners in cases of need.  With a volunteer network of over 200 Honorary Agents throughout the British Isles, the Society handles several hundred new applications for assistance each year and distributes over £1million in dealing with over 2,500 cases.

The Society was founded in 1839 as a result of the tragic loss of a fleet of fishing boats on the north Devon coast the previous year.  A month later, Her Majesty Queen Victoria graciously announced herself Patron of the Society and since then it has been honoured by Royal Patronage.
