Here at Grant Thornton, we've launched a new charity partnership in a bid to help tackle a condition dubbed ‘Scotland’s silent killer’.
We're aiming to raise thousands for the charity Sepsis Research (FEAT) through fundraising drives and employee-led initiatives.
Sepsis Research (FEAT) was launched in 2013 and named after Dr. Fiona Agnew – who died, alongside her unborn daughter – when she was thirty-five weeks pregnant. Fiona lost her battle, despite prompt diagnosis and extensive treatment. Her husband, Craig Stobo, who is a Director at Grant Thornton in Scotland, also contracted the contagious infection, but survived. He went on to launch the charity in a bid to raise greater awareness and support attempts to find more effective treatments.
