The GGR Group is involved with a number of charities where we hope that our sponsorship and participation can help with the fundraising of these local charities and good causes that are personal to our staff.
On xyz date we are holding a Team Margot donor registration event, working with Delete Blood Cancer UK to recruit new potential stem cell donors and promote & encourage the need for further recruits to join the stem cell registry.
You can save a life.
Please consider joining the stem cell registry as a potential donor. The easiest way is a painless, five minute online registration following which you have roughly a 1 in 1,200 chance of doing something heroic: actually becoming a donor and having the opportunity to save someone’s life.
The stem cell is the only organ to replenish itself. The benefits of donation far outweigh the actual or perceived inconvenience.
If you’re unable to register or if you have done so already, please encourage Just One More person to do the same, particularly if they’re of mixed race / genealogy. Margot’s mixed family background was one of the key reasons it wasn’t possible for her to find a perfect match.
There are 37,000 people worldwide who, right now, are in desperate need of a blood stem cell donor, including 1,800 people in the UK alone.
Only 50% of people with a blood cancer ever find a suitable match.
It needn’t be that way.
Team Margot’s mission
To help save and improve lives by educating, inspiring and motivating people, especially from ethnically diverse communities, to register as blood, organ, stem cell and bone marrow donors and to provide a range of support to families caring for child cancer patients.
Team Margot also provides secretariat support to the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Ethnicity Transplantation and Transfusion.
