Earlier this month, a group of 24 students and friends from Warwick Marrow took part in the National Three Peaks Challenge and raised over £4,500 for Anthony Nolan. In this article, we hear from Warwick Marrow’s Fundraising Coordinator, Sam Covins, who tells the story of their ‘Mountains for Marrow’ challenge.
For Volunteers Week, we’re sharing the story of Baiba – one of our amazing volunteers, who’s responsible for analysing our lifesaving spit kits as they come in from donors across the UK.
In over 50 universities across the UK, our amazing Marrow students recruit donors to the Anthony Nolan register, raise vital funds, and spread the word. And every year, Marrowers come from across the country for our annual Marrow AGM, to discuss ideas, plan ahead, and celebrate all of their astonishing achievements.

Julie Cook is one of our amazing volunteers. She fundraises tirelessly as part our Lincoln Friends group, and also volunteers at the London Marathon to cheer on our runners. As part of a series of blogs to celebrate this year’s Volunteers’ Week, we caught up with Julie to hear about what volunteering with Anthony Nolan means to her.
