Community Foundation for Merseyside
Medicash has actively worked with the Community Foundation for
Merseyside since 2006 when we launch our 'Good Health Fund'
endowment with a donation of £25,000. Since then we have
topped this up to be worth more than £50,000 and invested almost
£16,000 in Merseyside's communities to directly improve the health
and wellbeing of local people.
Everton in the Community
Medicash has agreed to donate £25,000 to support the work of
Everton in the Community, the official charity of Everton FC.

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation
Medicash has shown its support for the fight against lung cancer
by donating £10,000 to the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation. This
donation will help support a research project at Kings College
London. The research project aims to develop single molecule
strategies to test blood samples, which it is hoped will help
researchers to identify abnormalities in the blood that could be an
early sign of lung cancer.

Tranmere Community Project
In 2010 Medicash commissioned Tranmere Community Project to
research the skills needed to become a Five Star Parent. These
findings were then fed into a Government review on Poverty and Life
Chances. Since then Medicash has continued to support the Project's
work with young fathers in Birkenhead by helping them to improve
their own parenting and employability capabilities.
And many others too…
The Medicash Charitable Trust also makes a lot of smaller
donations to good causes. Recent donations have included £500 to
BASIC (the Brian and Spinal Injury Centre) in Greater Manchester
for its computer assisted rehabilitation environment, and more than
£700 for the Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention Appeal for DNA
sampling for the early detection of breast cancer.
