Lycian Events are proud to be associated with a number of charities and initiatives in and around the local area. We believe that together we can make a real difference to those that need help and support.
Please take a moment to learn about the organisations that we currenty support below.
Race Against Dementia, founded by Sir Jackie Stewart, raises and allocates funds to research in the race to find a prevention or treatment for dementia. Unless something changes, one in three people born today will get dementia and currently there are no disease-modifying treatments. Yet there is only one dementia researcher to every four cancer researchers. Investment is critically needed.
Today, 50 million people around the world have dementia. Unless a cure is found, one in three people born today will get dementia in their lifetime. A new person develops dementia every three seconds. This crisis cannot continue.
The Race Against Dementia (RAD) Fellowship Programme draws from the most promising early career scientific talent around the world. Collaboration with forward-thinking organisations in Formula One, as well as other innovative organisations, will bring the dynamic attitude, dedication and agility of Grand Prix teamwork to drive results in dementia research. The programme not only accelerates the Fellows’ personal research agendas, but also aspires to catalyse a change in dementia research culture globally.
Our RAD Fellows benefit from mentoring with both high tech organisations and a global academic network.

Help for Heroes believe those who serve our country deserve support when they’re wounded. Everyday, men and women have to leave their career in the Armed Forces as a result of physical or psychological wounds; their lives changed forever. The Help for Heroes charity help the retired, and those still serving, to recover and get on with their lives, providing physical, psychological, financial and welfare support for as long as they need it.
PAYING BACK OUR HEROES...
So far Help for Heroes have supported more than 25,000 people, but are aware that many more still need help and won’t stop until every wounded veteran gets the support they deserve.
Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry OBE to provide lifetime support to those wounded in the service of their country. No matter when someone served, they believe that those prepared to put their lives second, deserve a second chance at life. Every course and activity they offer aims to empower them to look beyond illness and injury, regain their purpose, reach their potential and have a positive impact on society.
You can show your support for those who put their lives on the line for us in many different ways. Whether you fundraise, volunteer your time or leave a gift in your Will, you will make a real difference to the lives of wounded veterans and their families. Right now, they need your support more than ever.
