  • Sixth Formers sign up to save lives

    Published 12/03/18

    Students at Warwick School have been given the chance to sign up as lifesavers as part of a national campaign to educate 16-18 year olds about blood, organ, and bone marrow donation.

    On the 5th March , a team  from the blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan visited the school as part of it’s  Lifesaving education programme 'Be a Hero'.

    84 students signed up to the register, which was an amazing number for a new school to the programme.

    Anthony Nolan uses its register to match potential bone marrow donors to blood cancer patients in desperate need of a lifesaving bone marrow transplant.

    Mr Jefferies, Head of Sixth Form, Warwick School,  

    "It was great to hear first-hand from the team at Anthony Nolan about the work they do, the need for donors,  and the process involved. I am delighted that after hearing the talk, so many boys signed up to the donor register."

    Sarah Cleveley, Regional Development Manager at Anthony Nolan, says,

    “We know that young people make the best bone marrow donors so it’s fantastic so see students so engaged with the cause. We hope that more local schools will sign up to our education programme and help us educate their students about becoming lifesavers.”
