The charity supporting Tower Hamlets and Newham’s hospitals aims to raise £1million for life-saving trauma research and care.
Barts Charity, linked to Barts Health NHS Trust, will use the funds for research at The Royal London Hospital, in conjunction with Queen Mary University’s Centre for Trauma Sciences.
East Ham MP Stephen Timms, who was stabbed whilst at his constituency office in 2010, backs the fundraising campaign.
“Traumatic injury such can happen to anyone at any time, and it’s only thanks to the incredible care that I received at The Royal London Hospital that I am still here today,” he said.
“With rates of serious injury set to rise, it is more important than ever that we support the vital work of those delivering the research and care that are saving lives every day.
