Anthony Nolan – Register & Be A Lifesaver Education Programme
For the second year running representatives from Anthony Nolan held a special assembly for year 12 students to present the Register & Be A Lifesaver Education Programme. Following on from this the Anthony Nolan Team then visited the sixth form on Friday 11th November to hold a recruitment event, aiming to encourage the students to join the Stem Cell Register. The event proved to be extremely popular, building on the success of last year. When asked why he had joined the register, Cameron Hefter, (age 17) explained “I have joined the register because if I was in that position I would like someone to do this for me.”
Keith Sudbury of Anthony Nolan sent the following message to the school following the recruitment event: “Thank you for letting us hold the recruitment event today. As a result there are 59 more potential lifesavers on the stem cell register! This is an outstanding response from your students. Less than 2% of the general population is on the stem cell register which indicates just how well Rushcliffe students have done. Please pass on my sincere thanks to students and staff for their support.”
We are already planning the visit for the next academic year and look forward to working with Anthony Nolan for many years to come.
