AMMF

Registered charity no 1091915

AMMF is the only registered charity in the UK working to raise funds for research into cholangiocarcinoma, a liver cancer occurring within the bile ducts.

Cholangiocarcinoma is considered a rare cancer, although recently an enormous and extremely worrying worldwide increase in its incidence has been flagged. In the UK alone, more than 1,500 people are diagnosed each year, where it is responsible for more deaths per annum than cervical cancer.

AMMF’s current objectives are to raise the awareness of cholangiocarcinoma, to provide information and to support specialised research teams in their work to find the causes, methods of earlier diagnosis and treatments for this devastating disease.

Swallowmax have unstintingly supported AMMF over several years giving their print services without fee. The excellent standard of their work on the charity’s newsletters, leaflets and Summer Ball brochures has gone a long way in achieving the all-important professional profile the charity strives to maintain.

We are very grateful to Phil Pearson and Rob Beaton, Directors at Swallowmax Ltd, for their generous practical help.

Fragile X

Registered charity no 1127861

Fragile X Syndrome is the most common, known cause of inherited learning disability. Symptoms include difficulties with learning and developmental delay, as well as social, language, attention and emotional and behavioural problems.

Founded in 1990 ‘The Fragile X Society’ is the only charity that seeks to help both families and children alike affected by fragile X Syndrome. We provide support and information on social, medical, educational and other services available, to help improve the quality of life for all. The Society has helped over 3,500 fragile X families and currently has a membership of over 1,700.

Our objective is to raise awareness of Fragile X by educating both public and professionals to the prevalence and nature of this syndrome. Through participation of family members we encourage research, via studies, into all aspects of its causes. In publicising our results and other activities we aim to promote understanding and exposure of this genetic condition.

The Fragile X Society is very grateful to Rob Beaton, Phil Pearson and all the staff at Swallowmax Ltd for their professional and generous help in substantially raising our image and profile via the quality of our printed materials. Especially our Newsletter, which goes out to family and associate members.
