So wrote Richard Branson on his blog this time last year, having been inspired by Margot after hearing about her appeal.
Whilst the date has changed and Margot is no longer with us, the core message remains the same:
You can save a life.
Or as we know from Margot’s experience, at the very least you can gift someone more time with their family and loved ones. A precious gift.
Please register as a potential stem cell donor. You can do so easily & quickly online or come along to a donor registration event – the next Team Margot donor registration event is on Saturday 17 January 2015 at Coleridge Primary School, 77 Crouch End Hill, London N8 8DN from 10am – 4pm.
Please just turn up – no appointment necessary. For more details see: http://crouchend4margot.org/
If you’re ineligible, or have already registered ? Then please encourage Just One More to do the same.
p.s. There are two other Team Margot donor registration events this month:
24 January 2015 – Taunton
31 January 2015 – Plymouth
Thank you to Delete Blood Cancer UK for all your ongoing help and for supporting these events.
Husband to Vicki and father to Oscar (2007), Rufus (2008), Digby (2015), Humphrey (2017) & Margot (2012-2014)
