Nottingham Marrow is part of Anthony Nolan's network of student volunteers; a charity dedicated to saving the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders.
Our society aims to recruit new donors to the Anthony Nolan stem cell register and raise lifesaving funds.
It's FREE to join and there are three key parts to Marrow’s mission that you can help with:
• Raising awareness – by posting on social media, holding events and running talks around campus, Marrow volunteers help raise awareness of blood cancer, stem cell transplants and Anthony Nolan.
• Signing up new stem cell donors – volunteers are trained to run recruitment events across their campuses (and beyond!) to give every student the opportunity to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell register. Research has shown that the younger a donor is, the better chance of survival a patient has – so signing up students is key!
• Fundraising – Marrow groups hold fantastic fundraising events, from bake sales to bucket shakes, sponsored runs to sparkling balls, they raise thousands of pounds to support Anthony Nolan’s vital work.
All of this amazing work helps to give more and more patients with blood cancer or a blood disorder a second chance of life.
