Marrow has three important aims:
To raise awareness of Anthony Nolan and blood cancer within universities around the UK. This means spreading the word, holding events and letting students know about our lifesaving work.
To give every student the opportunity to join our stem cell register. Marrow groups run recruitment drives across their campuses, from halls to the university gym, to make sure students know all about becoming a lifesaver.
To raise funds to help support Anthony Nolan’s vital work. Marrow groups hold fantastic fundraising events, including bake sales, bucket shakes, balls and more.
Marrow recruits one in four people who go on to donate stem cells
We’ve signed up over 100,000 people to the Anthony Nolan register
Marrow have raised over £92,000 in a year to help fund Anthony Nolan’s work.
We’d be nothing without our amazing student volunteers and in return we offer them a huge range of training opportunities to develop their skills and resources.
Students can give as much or as little time as they want, from helping at events for a couple of hours, to getting involved in patient appeals for a couple of months or joining a Marrow committee for a couple of years.
