Sorce are proud to have raised £755 for Anthony Nolan as part of our 20th anniversary fundraising campaign. Sorce employees ran, walked, cycled and swam at least 20 miles for Anthony Nolan during May, with many doing much more than this.
Anthony Nolan is the charity that makes life saving connections between patients in need and incredible strangers ready to donate their stem cells. Every 14 minutes, someone is diagnosed with blood cancer or a related disorder. Blood cancers are life threatening partly because they stop a person’s immune system working properly.
Sorce Managing Director John Nicklin commented “We are really grateful for everyone that took part and also everyone that kindly donated. Anthony Nolan is our chosen charity for 2021 and this has been a fantastic start to fundraising activities”.
Lyndsay Campbell, Community Fundraising Manager at Anthony Nolan commented “Fantastic news, congratulations! Your donation will make such a big difference to people with blood cancer. It costs £40 to recruit each person to the Anthony Nolan register, so fundraising is a vital part of our lifesaving work. The more fundraising we do, the more potential donors we can recruit onto the stem cell register, and the more lives we can save. With the amount of money that you have raised you will enable is to place 18 potential lifesavers onto the stem cell register which is just incredible”
Anthony Nolan saves the lives of people with blood cancer, such as leukaemia, by matching them to people willing to donate their bone marrow, or blood stem cells, for a lifesaving transplants.
It also carries out pioneering research to increase stem cell transplant success, and supports patients through their transplant journeys.
