If you feel inclined to do more than simply registering yourself & encouraging ‘Just One More’ person to do the same, you might consider organising a Donor Registration Event in the name of Team Margot.
We have been so touched by the fact that so many of you have volunteered to do this – these events can be big affairs, small coffee mornings or company registration days. The important thing is that new people are added to the stem cell (a.k.a. bone marrow) register.
If you would like to hold a donor registration event in the UK, the first thing you need to do is contact one of the charities below to discuss the date and venue of your potential donor registration event and to check the charity’s availability and agreement:
1. Anthony Nolan – will register people aged between 16 – 30 years old
Contact: 0303 303 0303 / www.anthonynolan.org
2. Delete Blood Cancer UK – will register people aged between 17 to 55 years old
Contact: 020 3176 7660/ www.deletebloodcancer.org.uk
Both Anthony Nolan and Delete Blood Cancer UK will give you advice on all aspects of how to run a donor registration day. It will very much be your event to run and manage alongside your chosen charity but please make sure that you get the charity’s support before you publicise anything on social media.
Once the above has been agreed and arranged with the charity, please contact Margot’s Auntie Nadia at firstname.lastname@example.org who will then be able to send you our ‘Team Margot pack’ which will include Team Margot marketing materials and merchandise that will help you fundraise towards the cost of each new registration.
Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
Together, saving lives
