Announcing our new charity partner – The UK Sepsis Trust
Every year in the UK there are 150,000 cases of Sepsis, resulting in a staggering 44,000 deaths – more than bowel, breast and prostate cancer combined.
The UK Sepsis Trust (UKST) was established as a charity in 2012 with the objective of saving 12,500 lives every year. We are committed to changing the way the NHS deals with
Sepsis, to increasing public awareness and supporting those affected by Sepsis. Every penny you donate is valuable in helping us achieve our goals, together we can help to mend Sepsis.
Sepsis is a life threatning condition that arises when the body's response to an infection injures its own tissues and organs. Sepsis leads to shock, multiple organ failure and death especially if not recognized early and treated promptly.
Huws Gray experienced the force of sepsis first hand after the sudden loss of company director, Elfed Hughes who died May 2016 after a short battle against the condition. Mr. Hughes was with Huws Gray for 24 years and played a major role in developing and monitoring certain departments as well as playing a key role in the company’s growth and management.
Huws Gray are delighted to partner up with UK Sepsis Trust to help raise awareness of this serious illness and raise essential funds to help the Trust improve the way sepsis is handled in the UK. As a company it’s fantastic for us to be able to do this in the memory of Elfed and we’ll be pulling together as a company to do what we can.”
