Svetlana Mintschenko is one of our inspiring volunteers. She has been a regular volunteer at our spit-kit socials on a Tuesday evening and is now in training to become a volunteer courier. As part of a series of blogs to celebrate this year’s Volunteers’ Week, we asked Svetlana how she first got involved with Anthony Nolan and what she enjoys about her role.
This October, our lifesaving Marrow students from across the country met for the 2015 Marrow AGM. It was an opportunity to share stories, celebrate successes, and plan for the year ahead.
In the first of two blog retrospectives, Ellie from Cardiff Marrow takes a look back at a very special weekend.
About 50% of the lifesavers who sign up to the Anthony Nolan register do it online. Which means we need to send them a ‘spit kit’ in the post – a handy package containing a tube for their saliva sample.
Which is why we need a little help from some truly fantastic supporters – like you.
Heather Ross has given over 100 talks in schools and colleges as part of our R&Be programme for 16-18 year-olds. We caught up with her to find out how she reached this brilliant milestone, and what inspired her to get involved with our work.
