Charities

Blue Water Energy has taken an active involvement in supporting local charities & community initiatives.

BWE believe strongly in supporting charities and good causes, especially in the local communities of our office and our portfolio company offices. Our core theme is the welfare of children and we currently support 6 different charities where this principal is at the heart of what they do. We also support on an ad-hoc basis a number of other charities where child welfare is their core purpose.

Through the support of Blue Water Energy and Tom and Helena Sikorksi, Moorfields Eye Hospital is pioneering research using next-generation sequencing technology into the treatment of retinoblastoma, the most common inherited cancer among children. As a result of this support, Moorfields hopes to develop more effective and less invasive treatments and enable earlier diagnosis, with the aim of targeted therapy.
