The Wiltshire Hub is made up of Volunteer Hub Leads Lauren and David, delivering donor registration events mostly within the Swindon area. Lauren was inspired to join DKMS after a close relative was diagnosed with blood cancer. Lauren and David are focusing on company drives and festivals.
"The Hub has several ideas for donor registration events for 2019. We have been busy bouncing ideas off each other and hope the Hub flourishes and registers lots of new potential blood stem cell donors.
I chose to volunteer for DKMS as I have been touched by blood cancer through family and friends and I decided that I would like to do something tangible to help in the fight against blood cancer."
"DKMS in Wiltshire is aspiring to sign up as many potential blood stem cell donors as possible! I support this charity in particular because I have experience of blood cancer through family and friends and I like the wider age parameters DKMS offers to potential donors.
I hope that we can help the UK get to 300,000 registered DKMS donors soon and create a vibrant and dynamic hub here in the South West. I’ve already planned a couple of possible events, registering people at a local market and hopefully a fundraiser with the Wildcats in the autumn.
