Caffè Nero

Supporting people paralysed by spinal cord injury

The Caffè Nero Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the European coffee group, has recently supported our research with a donation of over £50,000. This generous gift will go towards funding research that helps improve the lives of people with a spinal cord injury.

Caffè Nero values embrace fairness, sustainability, high quality and, most of all, making a positive difference in people’s lives. This fits in with our own desire to fund high quality collaborative research at the cutting edge of neuroscience and ultimately positively impact tens of thousands of individuals.

We are committed to supporting issues which can make a real difference to the communities and lives of individuals within and beyond the Caffè Nero Family.

The money donated by Caffe Nero will be used to fund research that will hopefully help Tara and the other 50,000 people in the UK paralysed by spinal cord injury. 

Spinal Research welcomes direct donations from organisations wanting to support our work, whether it is an unrestricted gift or dedicated towards a specific research project, we will work with you to ensure our collaboration is a positive and jointly beneficial partnership.
