Last week, Vicki collected a Delete Blood Cancer UK Special Award for Outstanding Contribution at the “Let’s Make a Spark” Delete Blood Cancer UK Awards Event. This is their highest award, which recognises the significant and inspirational role played by our family in raising awareness of the lifesaving work of Delete Blood Cancer UK, acting as an ambassador for the charity.
Vicki said: “When we learned that our daughter needed a bone marrow transplant and we launched Margot’s appeal, family and friends came together as Team Margot and remarkable things started to happen.
It means a lot to be recognised in this way and I’m delighted to accept this award on behalf of all my family and the wonderful people that are Team Margot.
Thank you everyone again for your fantastic support.”
And well done !
Together, saving lives
