Sheffield Marrow

About

We are the student-run branch of Anthony Nolan, a wonderful charity that runs the national stem cell register.

The register is in place to match individuals willing to donate their stem cells with people with blood cancer or a blood disorder in need of a lifesaving transplant. 75% will not find a match within their family and rely on unrelated donors, but not enough people are on the register to ensure everyone can find a match.

Our main goals are to:

  • Raise awareness and debunk myths about the stem cell register
  •  Recruit people aged 16-30 onto the register to potentially donate their stem cells
  •  Hold fundraising events for Anthony Nolan
  • We run recruitment clinics around Sheffield in many different places, and at all sorts of events. 1 in 100 people
  • we sign up go on to donate, which is why volunteering with us is so rewarding.
