The honour of saving a life is truly a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and not something just anybody can do. Every year, Sixth Form students are given the opportunity to sign up to “Be a Life Saver” through the Anthony Nolan Trust: a charity that works in the areas of leukaemia and hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, in the aim of defeating blood cancer. Whilst a high level of anonymity is provided to those involved, we were delighted to discovered that one of our student body had been matched with a patient, and has gone on to donate their bone marrow.
The organisation began in 1974, when Shirley Nolan’s three-year-old son, Anthony, was of urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world’s first register to match donors with people in desperate need; today the charity helps people all over the UK find that lifesaving match, and over 68,658 potential donors were recruited last year, saving countless lives.
After this incredible achievement, and we continue to encourage our sixth formers to consider enlisting with Anthony Nolan to recieve the same experience. To enlist, sixth formers must be in good health, weigh over 50kg and have a body mass index (BMI) lower than 40. Those interested can find out more information, or simply donate, to the Antony Nolan Charity via their website - www.anthonynolan.org
To all those who have already signed up, we say a big THANK YOU!!!
