Regular giving

Will you become a friend of the charity and make a regular donation to support our work?

Since the charity began in 2015, we’ve made things happen:

• We have now recruited nearly 10,000 potential stem cell donors; more than 130 of these have been identified as a match for a blood cancer patient in need with 16 going onto donate their stem cells to a blood cancer patient, giving them a second chance at life.
• An incredible 37% of the potential donors we have recruited are from minority ethnic communities, compared to just 15% of those on the whole donor register.
• 38% of our potential donors that have completed the lifesaving donation process for a patient in need are from minority ethnic communities compared to just 4% across the donor registry as a whole.

We may be a small charity, but we have big ambition, low overheads and people who care – like you.

Just £3 a month could support the recruitment and training of a volunteer to raise awareness of the issues surrounding stem cell and bone marrow donation in their local community.

By making a donation of £5 a month, the charity would be able continue its programme of donor registration across the UK.

A £10 monthly donation would give us the opportunity to respond to urgent patient appeals where no matching donor exists, by running emergency donor drives on their behalf.

We will not stop until all blood cancer patients – regardless of their ethnicity – have an equal chance of a quality stem cell match and in turn, a second chance at life.

With Covid-19 having a significant effect on our income, we need the support of our community more than ever.  Please join us by committing to a regular gift today.
