22 Jan ‘Register and Be a Lifesaver (R&BE)’ Charity Visits Post 16 Students
Post 16 students Ben and Nadra (Deputy Head Boy/Girl), along with Mrs Wright (Principal), were very proud to receive a certificate this morning from ‘Register and Be a Lifesaver (R&BE)’, an independent charitable trust delivering awareness raising presentations about stem cell, blood and organ donation in schools and colleges in the East Midlands.
The ‘Register and be a lifesaver’ programme has ran since 2009 as the legacy of journalist Adrian Sudbury, who died from leukaemia aged 27. Whitley Academy has worked with the charity for 10 years to educate our students about the importance of blood, organ and stem cell donation and inspire them to save lives.
Adrian Sudbury’s vision has already resulted in 69 young people going on to donate their stem cells and we are confident that this number will continue to grow.
We wish the Sudburys the very best and our school will continue to support the cause in the future. To find out more about the charity, please visit the Anthony Nolan website.
