Anthony Nolan Trust Visit
Offers from the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) visited Clydebank High School to recruit potential stem cell donors for Anthony Nolan, a charity working to find life-saving matches for patients suffering from blood cancers such as leukaemia.

Whenever a patient with blood cancer or a blood disorder needs a lifesaving stem cell transplant, the trust search the register, looking for someone who’s a genetic match for that patient.

More than 60 pupils signed up to register! This was particularly significant as it meant that the total number of registered donors, coming from the partnership between and Anthony Nolan and The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, hit the 10000!

Another piece of good news was that the partnership between SFRS and Anthony Nolan has just had its 26th match! Great news for someone!

To find out how you can join the Anthony Nolan donor register, or for more information on what is involved in donating bone marrow, visit: www.anthonynolan.org
