Jethro Bremner-Allison organises an annual golf tournament, pictured above, in support of Action on Asbestos and in memory of his dad, William Bremner-Allison, who sadly lost his life to mesothelioma.
This is one of the fantastic ways that people fundraise for AoA at the same time as remembering a loved one. Since the inaugural WBA Memorial Trophy held on June 4th 2017 – the first anniversary of William’s death – the event has raised an amazing £24,782.01.
Each year in the UK, at least 5000 people die from an asbestos-related disease. That is 100 individuals and families each and every week whose lives are devastated by this terrible condition.
A donation to Action on Asbestos allows us to provide much-needed practical advice, support, and assistance through our comprehensive welfare rights service and emotional support through our support groups all across Scotland.
We are committed to supporting patients and our NHS professionals who care for them: Funding two nurses working within the NHS, providing specialist care for those diagnosed with an asbestos-related disease and their families. We also fund cutting edge technology for the early diagnosis of lung cancer and We fund Continuing Professional Development (CPD) support for nurses in Scotland
