We are delighted to announce that SARD, a medical technology company based at the Innovation Centre, has chosen to support our fundraising for the Kent and Medway Medical School by choosing us as their Charity of the Year. They have pledged to raise £5,000 through a programme of charity events such as bake sales, quizzes, challenge events and much more and we are very much looking forward to working with them.
SARD is a family run business which supplies workforce management software to the healthcare sector. They are passionate about applying the best technologies to improve the way the healthcare workforce is managed and make life easier for those within it.
About their support for KMMS, they said:
“As a company founded alongside and working with doctors every day, we want to do everything we can to help strengthen the UK’s medical workforce. Kent and Medway Medical School will provide a new point of entry for future doctors and its focus on widening participation means that a career in medicine may become a possibility for many who would not have previously considered it. With one of our offices based at the University of Kent’s Innovation Centre, we are thrilled to have this development right on our doorstep and are excited about what this means for our children and children’s children, whether they be the doctors of the future, or those being cared for by them. We urge everybody to support this cause as every single person will need medical care at points in their life. The Kent and Medway Medical School will train future doctors who may end up saving the lives of you or your loved ones.”
They are kickstarting their fundraising efforts with a bake sale on Thursday 18th April from 10am in the Innovation Centre café area.
