“We were delighted to receive the news informing us that the Pavers Foundation had decided to make a grant of £15,000 to Muscular Dystrophy UK at the recommendation of Graham Paver. On behalf of everyone at Muscular Dystrophy UK and more importantly of the more than 70,000 people living with muscle wasting conditions across the UK whom we support, we would like to thank the Foundation, and most particularly Graham Paver, for this generous contribution. Such generosity is always welcome, but now is needed more than ever before”

Muscular Dystrophy UK works to bring together people suffering from more than 60 different, rare and progressive conditions related to muscle weakening and wastage. The charity provides vital help, support and intrinsic medical knowledge to those suffering with the rarest of diseases, who may not always get the best advice from healthcare professionals who have never encountered these conditions before.

The charity works via a number of channels, one of the most important being research, so that they can remain at the cutting edge of all discoveries made about muscle wasting conditions, and remain committed to driving the research into effective treatments and cures for these illnesses.

The Pavers Foundation’s donation, on behalf of Graham, will allow Muscular Dystrophy UK to continue working to ensure everyone living with a muscle-wasting condition has access to the care and support they so desperately need.

The Pavers Foundation is delighted to support this amazing charity, enabling them to carry out more fantastic work all over the UK. To find out more about Muscular Dystrophy UK, please visit their website:
