Scar Free Appeal

The Scar Free Christmas Appeal 2023

We absolutely smashed our target for our Scar Free Christmas Appeal 2023! Your generosity means we can fund even more ground-breaking new research into scar free healing, changing the lives of millions of people with life-changing scarring worldwide.

At the end of November 2023, we took part in the Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise funds for our Scar Free Appeal: Faster Breakthroughs in Research. For 7 days, all donations up to £20,000 were match-funded. We hoped to raise a total of £40,000 to fund vital medical research into scarring.

Our generous supporters went above and beyond. We raised a whopping £45,692 (including Gift Aid) from 72 wonderful donors. That's £12,993 more than what we raised in 2021 - an almost 40% increase!

We are so grateful for the support. If you donated to our Christmas Appeal, thank you. Your generosity will make a difference to people with scars, now and in the future.

With your donation, we're funding new research that will identify the genetic pathways that lead to scarring, change those pathways to slow, stop, or even reverse scarring, and support people already living with scarring, so they can live without pain or restriction.

A big thank you also to the Big Give and The Reed Foundation.
