Patrons at The Pride of Paddington in London can help cure blood cancer by purchasing a portion of Lifesaving Fish & Chips, with 50p from each order being donated to Anthony Nolan.
The pub’s landlord, Will Clayton, decided to support Anthony Nolan after his own experience of childhood leukaemia. As a nine year old Will received a bone marrow transplant from his younger sister and he is hoping that the partnership will help Anthony Nolan to match more people in need of transplants with individuals who are willing to donate blood stem cells and bone marrow.
Will says: “I was really lucky as when I was diagnosed my prognosis wasn’t great but I was lucky enough to find a donor from within my own family. By supporting Anthony Nolan I want to raise awareness of the great work the charity does to find donors for people who need stem cell transplants.
“The Pride of Paddington team are all proud to be working with Anthony Nolan to raise money and raise awareness of the need for more people to join its stem cell register.”
Jade Irons, Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager at Anthony Nolan says: "We’d like to say a huge thank you to Will and the Pride of Paddington team for supporting Anthony Nolan. This partnership will raise vital awareness, allow us to carry out ground-breaking research and provide much needed support, advice and information for people with blood cancer.”
