Donating through a charitable trust or foundation
Charitable trusts and foundations play an important role in funding cutting-edge research into the prevention and cure of arthritis and improving the lives of people living with arthritis today.
If you’re a trustee, have contact with a trust, or are setting one up, we’d be delighted to hear from you.

The Edith Florence Spencer Memorial Trust
Edith Florence Spencer was born in 1909. She was educated at Long Eaton Grammar School and worked for Customs and Exercise during the war. Her father died of heart disease in 1926. Her mother had arthritis but lived to the age of 90.
Edith died in 2005 aged 95, lived in Ockbrook all her life and never married. When Edith made her will she decided to set up a charitable trust to '
provide for the relief of suffering causes to those persons with heart defects, heart disease, rheumatism and arthritis and any associated complaints'.
Today Edith's Trust gives financial support to a wide range of people in need; including research gaining a better understanding of the pain of arthritis, and it's biological basis, at the Arthritis Research UK Pain Centre in Nottingham. Our researchers there have two main aims:
to find new painkillers and ways of using them
to prevent the pain of arthritis getting worse over time.
