What We Do

Leicester Marrow work alongside the charity Anthony Nolan to help save the lives of people with blood cancer by signing people onto the stem cell register.

This contains potential donors who may be tissue matches for those with cancer, with stems cells having the ability to regenerate good cells to get rid of the bad ones. 

For a variety of reasons, young people like us make the best donors - with a real chance of saving a life. That's why it's important we do the work we do.

As a result, our goals are:

  1. To raise awareness of the importance of signing onto the register at the University of Leicester
  2. Sign students between the ages of 16-30 onto the stem cell register - it only takes 10 minutes!
  3. Fundraise for Anthony Nolan itself since signing people onto the register costs the charity a total of £40 per person so we need to do both type of events as they work in conjunction. 
  4. Bust myths! People often think this is a painful process (not true!) and unaware that there's a 1 in 100 chance they would ever donate.

Becoming A Volunteer

Helping out and giving back couldn't be easier, and here at Leicester Marrow we train students throughout the academic year to help us in our mission of recruiting as many potenial donors as possible so that we can help save the lives of those suffering with blood cancer.
