We are committed to being an active and responsible part of the local community and have financially supported several local organisations.
Vitalograph are supporting the Royal Latin School, a state school in Buckingham which provides free education to pupils, in a fundraising campaign to meet the cost of new sports facilities for over 1,000 students and community partners. Vitalograph chairman Bernard Garbe met with the school head, David Hudson, and several pupils and teachers to announce matched funding for pupils fundraising.
Vitalograph will match funds raised by pupils as part of the ‘RLS 600’ campaign. Giving young people a positive sporting experience at school is vital for their development and is the essential foundation for lifelong fitness. Founded in 1423, the Royal Latin School has a unique opportunity to build on 600 years of educational excellence to deliver this step change and to share that expertise with others.
Vitalograph has also supported other local organisations including:
Buckingham Rugby Union Football Club
Buckingham Summer Festival
Buckingham & Winslow Young Carers Youth Club
Vitalograph staff have raised funds for a range of charitable causes including:
Macmillan Coffee Morning
Breast Cancer Awareness
ATS Giving Tuesday
Respiratory devices have also been donated to Afghanistan via Medicins Sans Frontieres and also to Cameroon, Benin, Malawi and Vietnam.
We donate equipment, training and support every year to third world countries, particularly in support of lung disease research. The ‘Fresh Air’ project is one such research project that we supported in several countries including Uganda, Vietnam, Eritrea and other under-developed countries.
Supporting treating lung disease in disadvantaged countries: Drs Peter Harrington and Joe Gallagher have presented a COMPACT Workstation to clinical staff for use by two institutions in Mzuzu, Malawi.
Vitalograph supports world asthma day: Vitalograph donated a number of Aerosol Inhalation Monitors (AIM) to members of the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (IPCRG) in Ireland, Portugal, Greece, Netherlands, Romania and Vietnam in an effort to identify and improve global inhaler technique and in turn improve patient outcomes.
