R&Be trains volunteers to give inspirational presentations to 16–18-year-olds, explaining how they could save a life through bone marrow, blood and organ donation. After the presentations, young people have the chance to register as donors.
We run the R&Be programme with NHS Blood and Transplant.

An R&Be talk is a great way for students to learn about donation. Find out more about organising one at your school.
‘It was nice to see the students passionate about something and when that “something” means saving a life – then you’ve done a truly incredible job.’
Gemma Fletcher, sixth form pastoral officer at Long Eaton School, Derbyshire
''Every time you pack a spit kit, every youngster who joins the register as a result of your talk, and every time you deliver a bag of stem cells, you know you’re helping to potentially save a life.' - Peter Hodes, volunteer
