DKMS- Donor Registration Helper

Details of the Charity:

We create awareness, recruit blood stem cell donors to provide people with a second chance at life, raise funds to cover donor registration costs, and support the improvement of blood cancer therapies through our own research.

We support patients from day one of their diagnosis, providing family and friends with a positive way to get involved by organising bone marrow donor drives that can enhance your donor search, rally community support and provide hope.

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

Donor drive volunteers support donor recruitment events to increase the pool of registered stem cell donors.

The more people who join the register, the more lives we can save.

Someone is diagnosed in the UK every 20 minutes and every 45 minutes blood cancer takes a life in the UK. For many blood cancer patients, a stem cell donation is their only chance of survival, but only 60% of people diagnosed in the UK find a matching stem cell donor.

By assisting at a donor drive, you are supporting us to increase the pool of registered stem cell donors and therefore increasing the chances of someone with blood cancer being given a second chance of life.

This role is on an ad-hoc basis depending on the time and date of the Donor Registration events taking place, which includes weekends and evenings, but the hours are flexible and negotiable to suit the volunteer. We will contact you in plenty of time to check your availability on upcoming events.
