National Railway Museum Event postponed

Peter Gibson ANTRUK announcements

It is with great sadness that the Antibiotic Research UK Voluntary Group York have taken the decision to postpone the National Railway Museum Dinner on Friday April 24, due to the coronavirus outbreak
Professor Colin Garner, Chief Executive of Antibiotic Research UK said: “It is so disappointing to have to postpone this event especially given all the hard work put into it by our friends in York. However, we are in the middle of a health crisis and as a charity looking to tackle bacterial superbugs, we must make the wellbeing of our organisers, supporters and guests the top priority.”
Plans to contact those who have purchased and reserved tickets for the event are currently being put in place. More information will be published shortly by the charity.
Colin concluded: “Small charities like ourselves will face difficulties with the abandonment of awareness raising events such as this and so it is important that people retain their financial support and patronage if they can by upping their donations during this difficult time. The world is currently seeing what a pandemic looks like. Imagine the scenario if drug-resistant infections were as widespread. That nightmare is coming unless we all contribute to the cost of researching and developing new medications, to replace our outdated antibiotics.”
