Each year Campbell Tickell nominates two charity partners to support over the course of a year. One is UK-focused while the other has an international focus. This year we have nominated to support Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY) and Women for Women International.
Both charities carry out vital work: CRY to reduce the frequency of sudden cardiac deaths in young people in the UK, and Women for Women International to help women rebuild their lives in nine war-torn countries around the world.
Campbell Tickell is delighted to be able to support both charities in achieving these aims through our fundraising activities this year
1.CRY – Cardiac Risk in the Young
CRY’s vision is to prevent young sudden cardiac deaths and to support affected families. The charity does this through:
Support: The emotional impact of the sudden death of a young person on their family cannot be underestimated. CRY offers emotional and clinical support following a young sudden cardiac death.
Screening: Screening to identify young people at risk is cost effective when conducted correctly. Conditions increasing the risk of sudden cardiac death can be treated, securing a future for those identified. CRY believes all young people should have the choice to be tested.
Research: CRY’s research programme enables comparisons between athletes, ethnicities and gender among the general population. Better understanding of what is normal helps to better identify and treat those at risk.
Awareness: Awareness not only helps identify those at risk, but also ensures correct clinical practice when treating a young person with an inherited cardiac condition.

2. Women for Women International
Since 1993, Women for Women International has reached almost half a million marginalised women survivors of war, living in some of the world’s most dangerous places.
Training: Women enrol on the charity’s year-long training programme, during which time they learn how to earn and save money, improve their family’s
health and make their voices heard at home and in their community.
Sponsorship: Campbell Tickell is proud to already sponsor a woman through the charity’s training programme. Our ‘sister’ is called Simi Bulus and she is from Riyom in Nigeria! Simi is now in her fifth month of training and is learning skills that will help her transform her life.
