The Lord Dowding Fund for Humane Research awards grants to scientists for advanced medical and scientific research that does not use animals. Projects include different types of cancer, kidney research, safety testing, microsurgery, toxicity of dental fillings, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and programmes to replace the use of animals in teaching.
There are lots of ways that you can help, have fun doing it, meet like-minded people, and recruit more supporters for the LDF.
From dog walking to sky diving, sponsored clean ups in local wildlife areas, or joining a sponsored event on the internet, such as road trips and marathons – you can have fun and raise much needed funds for animals. For more inspiration, click here.
