BE A SUPERHERO – HELP US IN THE HUNT TO FIND NEW ANTIBIOTICS

Briscoe Group is a proud Platinum partner of Cure Kids, and this year has joined forces with Cure Kids to help fund Dr. Siouxsie Wiles research to find new antibiotics to fight serious superbugs.

An estimated 700,000 people around the world die annually due to drug-resistant infections and, if new antibiotics are not discovered, this number could rise to as many as 10 million people a year within a generation; rivalling cancer as the leading cause of premature death. We need to act now.

In 2017, Cure Kids and Briscoes Group ran an in-store campaign aimed at funding Dr. Siouxsie Wiles research to find new antibiotics. The campaign raised a huge $100,000, making a significant contribution to Dr Wiles and her team’s work and resulting in some exciting leads.

But there is a lot more to do. Funds raised from this campaign will provide the resources needed to further explore these leads and significantly accelerate the team’s ability to extract, analyse, and identify novel antibiotics compounds.

Stores throughout the country will be asking customers for donations, holding quiz nights, fun runs, raffles and auctions, and raising funds.

With the help of its wonderful customers, Briscoe group has raised over $7 million for Cure Kids over the past 15 years. Every single dollar counts, so make a difference today and add a donation to your in-store purchase help fund this vital research.
