Who are we?

Marrow is a student representative of the Anthony Nolan Charity, a charity who saves and improves the lives of people with blood cancer and blood disorders. They do this by making life-saving connections between patients and incredible strangers, willing to donate their stem cells! 



What does volunteering with Marrow involve?

There are three key parts to Marrow’s mission that you can help with:

  • Raising awareness – by posting on social media, holding events and running talks around campus, Marrow volunteers help raise awareness of blood cancer, stem cell transplants and Anthony Nolan.
  • Signing up new stem cell donors – Our volunteers are trained to run recruitment events across campus (and beyond!) to give every student the opportunity to join the Anthony Nolan stem cell register. Research has shown that the younger a donor is, the better chance of survival a patient has – so signing up students is key!
  • Fundraising – As a Marrow group, we try to team up with all the fantastic societies to hold fundraising events throughout the year, from bake sales to the Plymouth 10k (and hopefully the naked calandar!)

All of this amazing work helps to give more and more patients with blood cancer or a blood disorder a second chance of life.


What you get for volunteering with Marrow:

  • Training and support - All our volunteers are trained in how to recruit someone to the stem cell register. You’ll also get bucket loads of support and ideas for campaigns from dedicated members of Anthony Nolan staff.
  • Attending conferences and events - Our annual Marrow National Conference and regional events are a brilliant opportunity to meet your fellow lifesavers, hear the latest Anthony Nolan news, and watch inspiring patient and donor speakers.
  • Boosting your CV - Organising events and committees, managing volunteers and public speaking - there are so many new skills to develop and then show off on your CV! It’s also great for portfolio pages, you’ll get some nifty certificates, as well as reference opportunities.
  • Freebies and fun - From T-shirts to tote bags, we’ll make sure you’re kitted up to save lives! Marrow is also the perfect way to meet new people as you work together on a shared caused.
