Following a recent Bucket Collection in Formby Tesco which was supported by www.vikingsskifflegroup and the amazing StemCellScouser Councillor Denise Dutton raising £453.10 for the Anthony Nolan Charity.
The StemCellScousers in just 4 years have now raised a amazing £45,444.19 for Blood Cancer Charities.The Anthony Nolan has received £34,546.13 of that total. Lawrie Mallyon from Anthony Nolan said “We are amazed by the tireless fundraising and awareness of the Anthony Nolan Charity that the StemCellScousers are doing for us and all the political support they have gained for the Anthony Nolan in the Mersyside area. It costs £40 to recruit and maintain just one new potential donor to our register.
StemCellScousers have helped us to recruit 846 new donors to our Stem Cell Donor Register.
StemCellScousers was formed in 2015 by Kevin Dunne and his brother Tony after the Anthony Nolan found a StemCell Donor for Kevin’s wife who had been diagnosed with the very aggressive Acute Myeloid Leukaemia The StemCell Transplant Saved her life. The transplant took place in the Royal Liverpool Hospital and the StemCellScousers still raise funds for the hospital’s R CHARITY.
The Myeloma U.K. West Lancs and Mersyside Support Group joined the StemCellScousers last year and have helped at numerous fundraising events for the Anthony Nolan and the Royal Liverpool Hospitals R CHARITY.
The next event is to be held in Enelle’s Glass House at 241B Lord Street Southport on Thursday 4th. July. The event is being produced by local singer and StemCellScouser Nuala Duxbury.
