Bilborough College celebrates 10-year link with bone marrow donor campaign by signing up 1000th student
Bilborough College has celebrated a 10-year link with a lifesaving bone marrow donor initiative by signing up its 1,000th student to the programme.
Register & Be a Lifesaver sessions were launched at Bilborough College in 2009 and from the 1,095 students who have signed up there have been seven donors.
The most recent was Amy Rogers, 18, of Sherwood, who donated her bone marrow in October 2016 after signing up to the register following an R&Be talk at Bilborough College in 2014. She was also the 50th donor from the R&Be programme.
Student Ethan Buttress became the UK’s youngest bone marrow donor to a non-related recipient at the age of 17 in 2014 after signing up to R&Be at Bilborough College.
