In one of its many charitable ventures, the Company raised several thousand pounds for the Skin Treatment and Research Trust (START), beginning in 1989 and continuing through the 1990s. The WCIT’s 1994 Charity Walk alone raised more than £10,000. Some of this funding enabled the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital to build a Clinic and Day Treatment Centre for dermatology patients. This was opened by HRH Duchess of Gloucester on 14 March 1996.
