Dear Sir/Madam

My name is Henry Fraser, I live in Hertfordshire. Whilst on holiday with friends in June 2009, I ran into the sea, dived into the surf and damaged my spinal cord leaving me unable to move my arms and legs.

I remember lying in my hospital bed 8 years ago unable to move anything from the neck down and my parents saying, “imagine what medical science can do in 10-15 years”.

There are an estimated 40,000 people in the UK living with a spinal cord injury.
Every eight hours, someone’s life in the UK will change forever because of being spinal cord injured.
Stem cells offer the greatest potential in any area of medicine to treat some of humanity’s most devastating and debilitating conditions. These include; Parkinson’s disease, spinal cord injury, heart attack, Diabetes, Blindness, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s, Stroke, organ transplantation, Arthritis and Osteoporosis, bone, tendon and cartilage damage, and sports injuries.

“It's never been a more exciting time for stem cell research” Sir Richard Sykes

The UK Stem Cell Foundation is the only UK charity focused on funding stem cell research. Charity Number 111009. It is home to some of the world’s leading experts in stem cell research who are working hard to develop treatments for the benefit of billions of people around the globe.

On Wednesday 11th April 2018 we will be holding our 3rd Henry Fraser Golf Day in aid of The UK Stem Cell Foundation at West Herts Golf Club. With the help of our friends and benevolent supporters from a variety of industries we raise in excess of 20K on the day. We are privileged to have several celebrities attending, Alan Shearer, Alan Smith, Jeff Shreeves, Will Fraser and Auctioneer Philip Serrell will all be helping to make this year a memorable event.

I am sure that you receive similar requests from hundreds of charities, and I completely appreciate that you are unable to fulfil them all, please rest assured your support will be greatly appreciated.

With help of generous sponsorship, auction lots or donations www.justgiving.com/fundraising/henryfrasergd2018 from companies such as yourselves we aim to raise 25K. You will know that you are helping to develop the most promising area of medical research today, that will have a lasting impact for generations to come. You can help to make a difference to the lives of millions of people who are affected by such devastating conditions.

In 2017 I was approached to be an ambassador for the UK Stem Cell Foundation, I was extremely proud to accept. Whether it be current or future generations that are saved from experiencing such trauma, we can change it! Like many I am excited to see what the future holds.

I very much hope you will consider supporting this event, the fundraising team would value the opportunity to discuss the enclosed in more detail, please contact my PA Diane Butler: Diane55@live.co.uk

Thank you for your time.

Kindest regards

Henry Fraser
