Bradford Burns Unit
The Bradford Burns Unit is a vital research centre that faced closure unless it could raise £100,000 and Bradford City FC along with the Telegraph & Argus launched an appeal in 2010 to help raise that sum. The Burns Unit is a research centre that has been at the centre of pioneering new ways to treat burns.
The Burns Unit was set up at Bradford University following the 1985 Bradford fire disaster at Valley Parade which killed 56 people and injured over 190. Since then it has done great work in finding new ways to treat burns through plastic surgery and research. The pioneering unit stands as a legacy to what happened on May 11th 1985.
The Bradford Burns Unit was set up by Professor David Sharpe who had been a consultant plastic surgeon for only five months when he was called to treat burns victims from the fire disaster at Valley Parade. He received an OBE for his work.

Bradford City Football Club
Most people who visit this website have one thing in common. We are Bradford City supporters or have a connection with the club that means we want to see it succeed. We raised £700 for Bradford City Football Club to buy a scanner that was much needed and although donate only a tiny fraction of our money to Bradford City, to the needs which we believe a supporters are most important.
There are a number of other causes we are interested to help, and if we choose to help certain causes we plan to get feedback from Bradford City supporters to see which causes they also think we should provide help to.
