As Viva means ‘long life’ in several languages, the Viva was truly put in Las Vegas at a Vegas-themed ball in aid of all those seeking a lifesaving matching blood stem cell donor on Friday night.
Held in Wolverhampton, it was organised by blood cancer sufferer Samrick Bahia and Focus Leukaemia. They had organised a fantastic ball last year where hundreds of people joined the blood stem cell registry and thousands of pounds was raised to fund the registration costs of new potential lifesavers.
That amazing event was a lot to live up to, but they surpassed themselves this year raising £58,600 for Delete Blood Cancer UK with many swabbing to join the registry too!
Not only a worthwhile event, it was full of fun, with Samrick and Focus Leukaemia pulling out all the stops to the bring the glitz and glamour of the casino floor to Wolverhampton!
