Round Table call to get registered

Stonehaven and District Round Table is urging young men aged 16-30 to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell donor register.

Anthony Nolan matches incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants.

Mark House, National President of Round Table, is urging young guys to get involved: “Men aged 16-30 are the most in demand as stem cell donors but they make up just 15% of the Anthony Nolan register.

“Round Table clubs were instrumental in getting Anthony Nolan to where it is today and as a young man’s organisation I hope we can encourage more young men to join the donor register”.

Ann O’Leary, Head of Register Development at Anthony Nolan, said: “Our original collaboration with Round Table added a huge number of potential donors to the register. This time around we want to reach young men in particular and we look forward to seeing how the campaign takes off in the Stonehaven and District area.”
