Sir Richard Branson
Sir Richard Branson, internationally renowned businessman and entrepreneur, was first introduced to COSMIC’s work by a journalist friend whose son had survived meningococcal septicaemia in St Mary’s PICU at the age of 10 months. He and the Virgin Group have been tremendously supportive of COSMIC’s fundraising efforts over the years.
