Anthony Nolan
Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders. Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants. It costs £60 to recruit, tissue type and maintain just one potential donor to our register. Your donations will help fund our lifesaving work. Please visit www.anthonynolan.org for more information or email events@anthonynolan.org if you'd like to get more involved.

Hello!!

Thank you for visiting my page!

By helping me to raise funds, you can help us save more lives.

In November 2010 I completed my huge challenge! Cycling almost 400km round the beautiful island of Cuba.

This challenge was most of the most physically grueling things I have ever done, but was also incredibly fun and worthwhile, made all the more doable knowing I had so many people supporting me,

There were 40 of us who took part in the challenge and we are hoping to raise over £120,000 between us.

In order to reach my fundraising target of £3000, I also took part in the Silverstone Half Marathon on March 6th 2011. Another huge challenge as I've never completed anything as big as a half marathon before, so I got back out training, and managed it round that track in about 2hrs 15 mins! Way better than I thought I would do, and it really helped being cheered on by the fab Anthony Nolan events team! 

NEXT UP: The British 10k - with Anthony Nolan as their charity of the year this should be an amazing day and a brilliant race around some of my favourite landmarks!

Cuba was a fantastic experience, and it opened my eyes to the passion that so many people have for the work of Anthony Nolan, so help me to help them continue their great work!

Today, there are over 16,000 children and adults worldwide waiting for a transplant. A transplant can quite literally be their last hope.

That’s where Anthony Nolan comes in. We manage the UK’s largest and most successful bone marrow register and provide two potentially lifesaving transplants every single day.

Unfortunately for every patient we can help, there is another who sadly we can’t because no match can be found. We constantly strive to recruit more people to the register, in order to save more lives.

As an extra incentive one lucky donor will be picked at random to win a cake =) and don't forget to Gift Aid if you're a tax payer!!

Thank you again - I'm so close to reaching my target now!!
