trukgaw1Martlets is a Hove based hospice offering palliative care for adults living with life limiting diseases, where a cure is no longer achievable. Their aim is to give those under their care the peace and dignity deserved by any person. The majority of the funding comes from local business, groups and individuals who share the same ideologies that Martlets have and is a community supported charity.

GTL donated £500 to Martlets which supplied the hospice with meals for the people living under their care over the Christmas period allowing them to share some of the joy that Christmas has to bring even in their times of need.

The charity has three main sectors; an awareness centre; a helpline; and a hotline all in which try to reduce criminal activity whilst online and a place to call if you are confused or suspect such undertakings to be occurring.

We at Genetic Testing Laboratories wanted to support such a cause in an age where the internet is expanding faster than ever before, so we have tasked ourselves with raising awareness of the Safer Internet Day (SID) through our social media accounts. We hope to increase the reach of such an important prevalent issue and help those already experiencing it.
