Team Margot is now a charity

Our fantastic association with the Beds and Bars chain of backpacker hostels, St Christopher’s Inns provides Team Margot with a European awareness platform in 8 countries, which is set to expand to more than 20 countries after the network of Europe’s Famous Hostels is later added. This is youth travel at its best – which is the perfect target market for potential stem cell donor recruits and it will also mean that there is a sustainable fundraising activity for our brand new charity:

Team Margot continues to honour Margot’s legacy as a permanent Foundation.

Team Margot Foundation is a newly registered charity. We campaign for more potential bone marrow / stem cell donors to join the register – especially people with a mixed genealogy. Margot’s mixed family background was the key obstacle to finding her a perfect match.

As a grant giving Foundation, we also support people and projects close to our hearts – more specifically charities and research related to bone marrow / stem cell transplants, such as blood disorders like leukaemia and those caring for child cancer patients.

Currently, these include: Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity, Delete Blood Cancer UK, Anthony Nolan, Shooting Star Chase Children’s Hospice and Momentum.

Everyone at Team Margot is a volunteer. Every penny raised for the Foundation will go to the wonderful people and causes we support.
