How your berthing fees are helping to fight COVID-19

Date:

As a Premier berth holder, we’d like to tell you how through your berthing fees, you are helping to support research into combatting Coronavirus (COVID-19).

You may be aware that Premier Marinas is owned by The Wellcome Trust, ‘a global charitable foundation that exists to improve health for everyone’.

Each year, after we have invested in maintaining and improving our marina facilities, Premier’s remaining profit is returned to the Wellcome Trust, which in turn uses this money to support scientists and researchers in biomedicine and a range of other activities in the humanities, social sciences, public engagement and education. 

At this time, Wellcome is playing a significant part in supporting the global fight to understand and overcome the COVID-19 pandemic. Click here to find out more about this.
