Thank you to our amazing supporters for your support!
September is a huge month for raising awareness of sepsis, not just in the UK but around the World. In September 2020 we marked Sepsis Awareness Month with our flagship Sock it to Sepsis campaign.
Unfortunately, due to the covid-19 restrictions, the traditional office bake sales and dress as you please days didn’t happen. Neither did the large sporting events or awareness events in hospitals for staff and patients. However, we didn’t let this dampen our spirits and, with the help of our supporters, we have some great Sock it to Sepsis successes for this year!
To all of you who helped support us with donations and fundraising events, we want to say a huge thank you.

What did we do for our Sock it to Sepsis Campaign in 2020?
We hosted our first ever Virtual World Sepsis Day Event at the beginning of the month with speakers including Clinical Director for Scotland Jason Leitch and BBC presenter Fiona Stalker. Our corporate partners Morgan Philips and Grant Thornton held sports challenges with the Morgan Philips team racing virtually to Blackpool Tower, and Grant Thornton racing virtually around the World! Plus Woodlane of Doune hosted a fundraising fashion show to raise money. Take a look at some of the other fundraising activities below.
To all of you, and the many other supporters that we haven’t mentioned here, we thank you so much for helping us Sock it to Sepsis!
Sepsis is a global problem. According to recent findings, published in the Lancet report, it is now estimated that sepsis deaths account for one in five of all deaths around the World. That’s more than Cancer! If you can, please help support vital research by donating using the link below.
We’re always looking for volunteers to share stories of your experience with sepsis to help raise awareness. Whether you’ve been personally affected by sepsis or you’re a health professional or volunteer helping to fight the condition, we want to hear from you! We need people from all walks of life, from across the country, to share your sepsis stories. Get in touch with our team today to share your story.
