Ikonic Technology Ltd take our charitable support extremely seriously. We have selected a range of, local and national charities to support. And while Duchenne UK is our primary charity, all of our chosen charities are deeply personal to the team at Ikonic.
The main focus of Ikonic Technology Ltd’s charitable work is focused on Duchenne UK. Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a progressive condition diagnosed in Childhood. It causes all of the muscles in the body to gradually weaken. Duchenne is 100% fatal.
Duchenne UK connect scientists, the pharmaceutical industry, the NHS and families to advance and accelerate medical research, while bringing everyone affected by DMD the care and support they need.
Duchenne UK has a personal connection for Ikonic, due to Sales Director Tony Levene’s son having DMD. In the past Ikonic has raised over £30,000 for Duchenne UK and on the 20th October 2022 Ikonic are undertaking our biggest challenge yet – A fire walk. Our target is to raise a minimum of £10,000 for Duchenne UK.

I can’t believe Joey is now blessed to have reached the age of 17. It’s been almost 16 years since Joey was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular dystrophy. During covid, I really feel everyone could relate to our worse fear about your child or loved one getting sick and dying of a disease. Duchenne is a progressive muscle wasting illness.
I never in my wildest dreams, thought Joey would still be walking at 17, though assisted at times with his wheelchair. The doctors tell us he is one of the “lucky ones” as the condition hasn’t robbed him of hs all his abilities yet… time though isn’t our friend, Duchenne is 100% fatal.
I feel blessed every day for this and that he is still with us. Joey is full of life and brings so much joy into our lives. Not many see his struggles, but we’re so proud of the way he deals with everything.
I know what the future according to current medical science will bring. An empty chair at our table. But we are getting closer to a treatment, a chance of a longer and better quality of life for this and the next generation of those with Duchenne.
