Past fundraising activities
Golf Day at Grims Dyke Golf Club
The 2011 Intensive Care Foundation golf day was a great success despite the weather. Dr Brett (not a golfer) watched the cascading rain through the window while the golfers slogged and hacked – literally - their way around Grims Dyke Golf course. However he gave us a warm welcome in the clubhouse and the 67 intensivists and our supporters who took part in the competition enjoyed the hospitality of the 19th hole. Afterwards Dr Brett presented winners with their rewards taking the opportunity to highlight the importance of the work of the Intensive Care Foundation. A delighted Rae Webster from Northampton was the top Intensive Care Golfer on the day. A lively auction followed, Jim Dalling wielding the hammer very efficiently such that the proceeds of the day reached a total of £1840.
Over the last 5 years the ICS has successfully organised Fun Runs at each of the Annual Spring Meetings. If you would like to organise a local run, in support of the Intensive Care Foundation, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to download our fundraising pack.
Thank you to our Industry Partners and members of the Intensive Care Society who have helped source and support the various raffles we have held at our annual scientific meetings.

Work Since 2003 - Leveraging Funds
To date, the ICF has contributed £500,000 into seed funding leading edge clinical trials. The success of these trials has led to a further £5 million raised from mainstream health funders for more extensive research; these grant giving bodies only providing funding where there has been a combination of a successful pilot and a network of collaborators in place.
Over the next 10 years, the ICF have forecast ambitious plans for the research programme, developing National Research Strategy, and implementing a network of prominent professors to manage the delivery of the research strategy. Research areas are prioritised by critical care clinicians from the networks and forums of the ICF reaching a consensus. This prioritisation process ensures there is a professional buy-in to the trials being undertaken and for research areas to have the most potential benefits to patients.
Therefore the ICF urgently need funds to implement the ambitious plans. If you are keen to support our activities then get in contact or download our fundraising pack for ideas on how you can help.
