NOTTINGHAM MARROW = SWAB GOALS!
What We Do
Nottingham Marrow work alongside the charity Anthony Nolan to help save the lives of people with blood cancer by signing people onto the stem cell register and helping those in need of a transplant seek out potential donors and find the match that they so desperately need. Signing up is a big committment and, as a society, we work to inform individuals of the process and run numerous recruitment events throughout the year all over campus to sign people onto this register in the hopes to increase the number of potential donors available to those in need. We also act to fundraise for Anthony Nolan itself since signing people onto the register costs the charity a total of £40 per person; quite the coin if you consider just how many people are signed onto the register and how many lives they've gone onto save.
Our Story So Far
As of September 2018, Marrow itself has been up and running for a total of...20 YEARS! Origninally set up right here in the heart of Nottingham, at the lovely UoN, Marrow has gone from strength to strength and has since grown to encompass over 55 universities throughout the UK and globally, signing over 700,000 people onto the register since 1998. And this number is STILL growing! In fact, Nottingham Marrow have singed up over 400 people since the start of this academic year alone, and we just KNOW that with your help we can increase this ten-fold by the end of the year!
Becoming A Volunteer
Helping out and giving back couldn't be easier, and here at Nottingham Marrow we train students throughout the academic year to help us in our mission of recruiting as many potenial donors as possible so that we can help save the lives of those suffering with blood cancer.
