Always Remembered
30th Anniversary – Bradford City FC Fire Disaster

The 30th Anniversary of the Bradford City Football Club fire
disaster occurs on May 11th 2015. 56 supporters died in the disaster, two of whom supported Lincoln City, Bradford City’s opponents in 1985. 258 other supporters suffered injuries, many sustaining serious burns.

The Plastic Surgery and Burns Research Unit (PSBRU) at the University of Bradford was established in the aftermath of the fire, and has become a lasting memorial to all those who suffered there. Research activities at the PSBRU investigate various ways in which wound healing and scarring can be improved to deliver the best possible outcome for patients. 24 research fellows have trained at the PSBRU and most have now entered a career in Plastic Surgery and are established consultants, improving lives both in the UK and around the world but the continued existence of the PSBRU depends heavily on donations.

Help us to raise £300,000 for the PSBRU - Please donate today
