Royal Parks Half 2019

October 13th 2019

Congratulations to our team of 8 intrepid runners who braved the wind and rain in central London to take on the Royal Parks Half marathon.

The team raised a fantastic £2,150 for Sapphire Medical Foundation. The team of 8 included our trustee Simon, as well as a number of volunteers. Simon who was completing his first half marathon thanked all the other runners. ‘The conditions were testing, but I want to thank all other runners for their hard efforts and the money they helped raise for a fantastic cause. My legs really felt it the next day and I was struggling to get around at work, but I hope to get back out there soon help others raise more money for the foundation.’
Vasaloppet 2020
March 1st 2020
Congratulations to Dr Mikael Sodergren who took on the world’s biggest cross-country ski race to raise money for Sapphire Medical Foundation in challenging conditions
Mikael, who had never attempted cross-country skiing before signing up last year, raised a staggering £1,451. Mikael who completed the 90km race in 10 hours and 59 minutes said the following about his achievements: ‘It was truly a marathon event and I don’t think I’ll be rushing back onto the cross-country skis but I’m really happy to have raised such a significant amount which can hopefully be used to improve the lives of those struggling with conditions where medical cannabis may benefit, but is currently out of reach.’
Medical Cannabis Awareness Week 2020
November 2020
Congratulations to all of those who helped Sapphire Medical Foundation run, walk and swim the 550km journey from London to Holland. Teams from across the medical cannabis sector contributed to the virtual fundraiser.
The event raised a significant £510 for Sapphire Medical Foundation. Simon Erridge, trustee at Sapphire Medical Foundation was thankful for the support received: ‘In the current circumstances we are grateful for every penny raised as we understand it is a really difficult time for everyone at the moment. This money will go directly towards supporting the prescription costs for a patient so a big heart-felt thanks to all those from Cellen, CPass, Canex, Conservative Drug Policy Reform Group, CBPM Access, Centre for Medicinal Cannabis, Hill Dickinson, Plea, Rokshaw Laboratories, Sapphire Medical Clinics and the Primary Care Cannabis Network who put in the hard work to get us across the finish line, as well as all those who donated.’

Breaking Down Barriers

Why we need your help

Medical cannabis can have life-transforming effects for vulnerable patients in the UK whose lives are blighted by chronic conditions. NHS access is still virtually non-existent. In the recent grant application round, we have received a huge increase in applications.
