Loughborough Marrow Society
Saving the lives of people with blood cancer. In association with Anthony-Nolan.
WHO ARE LOUGHBOROUGH MARROW?
Marrow helps to save the lives of people with blood cancer.
We work alongside Anthony Nolan and other Marrow groups in the country to sign people up to the stem cell register through donor recruitment drives. People with a diagnosis of blood cancer may need a lifesaving stem cell transplant. For this to be possible, they need a match, which can be found through the Anthony Nolan register.
Throughout the year, we will run a variety of events, from donor recruitment drives to fundraising events to socials. In order to run all these events, we need amazing volunteers just like you! You will receive training where needed and all our events are flexible so we are grateful for as little or as much time as you can give us!
There are so many opportunities to get involved with Loughborough Marrow:
Donor Recruitment Drives: Throughout the term, Marrow runs various recruitment drives across campus. These drives involve signing students onto the Anthony Nolan register, making them potential lifesavers. As a volunteer at these events, you will be chatting to those who are interested in joining the register and with the support of Marrow committee, helping them to fill out their forms! Training is available to all volunteers and committee members will always be there to support you.
Bucket Collections: We also run various bucket collections across the year, usually at a Stuesdays, Hey Ewe or FND. These collections are usually a lot of fun and we raise lots of money for Anthony Nolan.
Socials: It's not all work. Our social secretary will always make sure there are a variety of social events throughout the year to suit everyone. From a simple meal out to a pub quiz or a night at the union - we have you covered.
