PHD Media raises expectations for Race Against Blood Cancer with record donor drive

On Tuesday 25th in London, the PHD team managed to register the most stem cell donors to the register in any one drive to date.

Despite the soggy weather in the midst of summer, Judy Chan and her team of volunteers were raring to go and focused on the number of people they wanted to get signed up.

Not that it was ever really in doubt given the passion and sheer professionalism of the team but the final count for the day set a new record, for any corporate drive to now try to beat – the team at PHD with support from Alex Morrison and Lucy Baumgartner managed to register 131 new stem cell donors in just 6 hours – 24 more than its sister agency OMD International had valiantly achieved just 6 weeks prior.

Alex and Lucy from Race Against Blood Cancer who were involved in the organisation and present at the event can’t stress enough how wonderful the whole team was and how they all fully embraced the task at hand, keeping the environment friendly, informative, while managing to remain light hearted throughout.

In addition to signing up a significant number of new stem cell donors, many of the volunteers asked to become regular volunteers for Race Against Blood Cancer, with some of them planning to join us at this weekend’s Notting Hill Carnival where Race Against Blood Cancer will be supporting the ACLT.

Race Against Blood Cancer would like to say a massive thank you to everyone at PHD for making us feel so welcome and also give a special shout out to Judy Chan, Catherine Aylward, Jennifer Fuller, Claire Hall, Rebecca Burchnall, Charmaine StJohn, Lucinda Leonard, Victoria Crabb, Rachel Robinson, Shannon Monson, Faye Razzak, Dipesh Pattni, Tom Blaza and Lauren Thompson for their support on the day itself. You were all amazing.


We can’t wait to come back next year and here’s hoping to better weather!
