Former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams calls them ‘finely crafted and vivid poems, formally well shaped, emotionally sharp and compassionate’ – and now ‘Heartlands’, a book of poetry from Jeni Braund, is on sale.

Last year, Tony was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) – and told that he’d need a stem cell transplant to have a chance of life. In this moving two-part story, he tells us about his experiences and his recovery – and his wife Beth reflects on his astonishing decision to take on a lifesaving journey in support of Anthony Nolan.
This year, the Blaby Society of Artists has chosen Anthony Nolan as its nominated charity; Chairman and Founding Members Marguerite and Brian Armstrong explain why.

Danny Keeling is 25 years old, and a Front Desk Agent at Ace Hotel in Shoreditch. Last year, after registering as an Anthony Nolan stem cell donor, Danny learned that he had been selected as a match for someone with blood cancer – and after donating, he was inspired to raise lifesaving funds for our cause with a series of Pride in London events.
