We conduct world-class research into stem cell matching and transplants, so we can make sure every person in need gets the best possible treatment.
I’ve been fundraising for Anthony Nolan for a few years now and I’ve learned that people tend to give more when they are having fun and don’t feel compelled to ‘give, give, give’. That’s why our race nights not only give people a great nigh out, but also raise lots of money for Anthony Nolan….
